Baseball and fun / Bella Blvd DT

Good morning everyone!
Back again to share with you a layout I made using the Baseball collection this week.
This layout really didn't go the way I planned, I started my layout with everything going across the middle of the layout, and a whole different picture picked out, but I dropped my phone in water a little over two weeks ago and lost all of my pictures on it!! I was so sad, thats what I get for never backing my photos up anywhere! I will from now on, I promise you that!
Like I said I started my layout with everything towards the top of my layout, going all the way across from side to side. I didn't have my picture printed yet, but knew what size I wanted it to be so I created a layered photo mat, with a little dimension, placed it where I wanted it and went to adding some more color to the sides of my layout.

 I added some brighter pops of color/patterned papers to the sides, I distressed the edges of my of my papers to add a little more dimension to them too. I pulled out the sticker sheet and the ephemera pack and started to tuck things in here and there on my layout, I have a love for all the tabs, as you can probably tell!
I popped a baseball here in there up on some dimensional foam, added a few stars and some more tabs, lol. Along with baseball mitts and then my title. 
Once I had the title on I thought I was going to be done with this layout, but when I looked at it again, I thought there was to much white space at the bottom of my layout. So I decided to add a few uneven paper strips, I used a boarder punch from my stash for one of them. Then went in and tucked another tab and that cute foam finger in. 
At this point I knew I was done and just needed my photo, then that whole thing with my phone happened :(

 Well, I liked my layout so I went in to my pictures and found this picture of my son doing some batting practice. We had went to a local park, his sister was using the tee stand and he was being pitched to. He loves to practice and he loves baseball so I thought the title still worked too.
