A New Alphabet!

Welcome to the 4th day of the MFT December release sneak peeks. If this is the first you've seen of them, be sure to scroll through my previous posts and stop by Kim's blog to see who else is sharing the goods!
So, I am a self proclaimed alphabet junkie. I love mixing fonts, sizes of letters, and different letter mediums (paper, chipboard, ink, die cuts...you name 'em I've got them). I was thrilled when I saw this month MFT is adding a new alphabet to their stamp line-Alpha Dots. I used it on a scrapbook page and I can't tell you how excited I am to finally have this page completed. I tried to start it over 2 months ago and I just couldn't make the pictures work on a layout. Once I got this alpha, the whole page just fell into place. It was meant to be, I tell ya! LOL!

My two oldest boys finally played together on a team together last summer. It was so nice to only have 1 practice to go to, and 1 game to see. They loved that T-ball season.
My title is a little play on words. Do you get it? Double Play. They both played on the same team. I thought it was quite clever. The word play in the title was done with the new alpha. The dots fit perfectly with a 3/4 inch circle punch. I stamped them in black on white cs, and the punched them out. I then accented them with a clear epoxy sticker. Here's a close up.

It was a perfect fit! I used old olive cs along with some green, October Afternoon dp from the Night Light line. I thought the design looked just like the fences of a backstop. What do you think?

Be sure to see Kim's blog today around 11 am (est) for the full line up of Alphadot fun. Also, only 1 more day till the release of all these fabulous new sets. Come join the fun in the SCS MFT forum from 8-10 EST!!!! I've got one more day of a sneak peek and then tomorrow night is the MFT Blog Hop! Stay tuned! Hugs, Lisa
