The first time...

The first time I walked into the Freshman/JV boys locker room to decorate the day before the game, I almost threw up in my mouth! The smell was absolutely revolting! Sweaty jerseys, socks, shoes, gloves, and jock straps! There had to be a dead body in someone's locker!

Here's what I don't understand... There's an industrial sized washer in the locker room. Why don't they use it?

This week, the theme is "Cage the Lions!" Speaking of caged lions... You know the smell in a zoo? The elephants, monkeys, etc... I think the zoo smells better than the boy's locker room!

Anyway, we put snacks and Gatorade in the boy's lockers, hung streamers and balloons, put a stuffed lion in a pet crate, and hung our hand painted spirit signs on the walls. Their locker room looks great! Unfortunately, this was the only picture I have and I had to get it from another mom. I think I may have been too overwhelmed by the smell to think straight.

Even though I had to breath through my mouth the entire time, I did have a lot of fun but how am I going to endure the smell next week?

Welcome to my blog!

I'm Rechelle and I'm a proud football mom! I'll be sharing game, cheering, and scrapbooking experiences with you!

My son has been playing football for years. I've attended the majority of my son's games and cheered him and the team on. Since this is my son's first year in high school, I've decided to be a little more active... I volunteered to help decorate the freshman lockers in the boy's locker room.

I have a Cricut Expression and normally use it for scrapbooking. Now, instead of just using it to create football (and other) scrapbook pages, I'll be using it to cut letters for some of the spirit signs we hang in the locker room. We'll have both the old school hand-painted signs and the new school Cricut cut letter signs.

Since, I've volunteered my Cricut, I've been nicknamed and greeted as "The Cricut Lady". I love it and am honored to be a part of an awesome group of ladies!

Next week, the other football moms and I will decorate the boy's locker room for the first time! I can't wait!
