New Orleans Saints Layout

It's Super Bowl Sunday!

I'm not at the Super Bowl today--I'm somewhere much better in my opinion. But we did go to an NFL game while we were in New Orleans for Halloween, so in keeping with a football theme for the day, here's my layout from that game:

The game (New York Giants vs. New Orleans Saints in the Super Dome) was the third highest total points in NFL history, which made for a great time: lots of touchdown celebrations. My husband said both teams' defensive coordinators should be fired, but I didn't care. I like offense!  The Saints won 52-49 with a last second field goal, which was super-exciting. The fans were chanting "Who Dat!" long after the game. (If you don't get it, don't worry--it's a New Orleans thing.)
My layout was simple. I used black & gold (Saints colors) and white.  I had some large black tags sitting around, so I incorporated them into the layout. Here's the left side:
These pictures are during the pregame. We had great end zone seats!  I also used fleur de lis punches here and there to bring more of a New Orleans flair to the pages.  Here's the right page:
Most of my materials were CTMH, but I think they're all retired. I'll be sad when I've finally used up all the black striped B&T paper--it's been a favorite.  The top right photo is the winning field goal. The bottom pics show Drew Brees, the Saints quarterback, and Eli Manning, Giants quarterback and New Orleans native.  On top of a great game, we got to see two former Super Bowl winners.  Neither made it to today's game, although I'm sure Eli is watching his brother Peyton.
I used my "new" vintage typewriter for the journaling. I love that typewriter!
For the title, I used a CTMH alphabet stamp, punched out the letters, and affixed them with dimensional adhesive. This layout is pretty flat, aside from the title and the ties on the tags.
Thanks for looking, and I hope your team wins today!  I'll be watching beachside.
