It's Baseball Season!!!!!

Hello there, ePer's!  Today is the ePlay challenge on the eclectic Paperie blog and this month is all about wood!  I am sharing my wood project here with you now!  Sherry is back with us, which i am so excited about!  And she is the hostess with the mostess!  You can find the links to all of the team projects HERE!
In other news with eP, we welcomed a brand new team member, Julia Aston! Definitely check out her blog HERE!

Ok, on with the project!

In our house, baseball and softball have officially started!  Yay!!!! That means Spring is here and I am ready for bleacher butt! LOL!
Anyway, when we were presented with the challenge of working with wood, my mind went in a million different directions, but I decided on using Graphic 45's Good ol' Sport and a piece of scrap wood that I chiseled to make into a bat.  I shouldn't have wasted my time though, because you can't even tell with all of the ephemera on top!  Oh well!  That's what happens when you don't know what the end result is going to look like!  Hahaha!

Ok, so the first picture above is the entire bat.  The next one is a closeup.

This last one just shows the dimension.  I have a thing for Tim Holtz's Film Strip!  LOVE that stuff!  Love how it comes out of the jar already curly!  I just glue it in place and call it a day!

All of the paper and everything on the bat are from the G45 Good ol' Sport 12"x12" pack.  I did add a stamped bat and ball to complete the look.  And of course the film strip.  But, you can find the rest in the pack and you can find the pack right HERE!

Have a WONDERFUL day!  We hope that you can come and play in the ePlay challenge this month!!!!  If wood is not your thing, that's ok!  Just wait til May!  Oh my, now I'm rhyming!  It's time to end this post!!!
