BASKETBALL SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT
My basketball scrapbook layout shows exactly what my basketball-playing stepson would look like if he slam-dunked with a no 44 on his back. As I didn't own such a photo, this one is a great likeness!

Basketball is very often played on outdoor courts - surrounded by walls, usually with grafitti on. I tried to suggest this by placing my stick-ons on my black 'wall' in a haphazard fashion. If I was to do this again, I'd probably daub some grafitti on it of my own. (Clean and morally upstanding grafitti, of course
