Fashion Friday - Gayle

This weekend, there's a big football game.  Technically, I can't call it what it is due to copyright, etc, etc, so I won't.  I don't particularly care for football.  First of all, I don't understand it at all.  Secondly, it bores me to no end and there are SO many more ways I'd rather spend my time.

However, the gentlemen I share my home with LOVE football.  My oldest son has taken a particular interest and loves the Denver Broncos (even though we live deep in Patriots country). I have never seen such pure joy as the moment he realized his team was going on to the biggest game of the year.

I decided to make a football themed paper doll for this week.  I went back & forth a bit about whether to do man, woman, or toddler set.  I settled on a woman.  There are a lot of female fans of the game and I wanted to represent that.  Maybe I'll expand this and make a whole set.

It's the 50th anniversary game this weekend, so I included a jersey to commemorate that.  I went with Broncos colors in honor of my little boy's love of the team.  I went with a general football pattern instead of specific logos.

Anyway, I'll be cheering for the Broncos while Noah sleeps -- we'll record the big game so he doesn't miss out!


  1. Superbowl Superbowl Superbowl! hahaha ~ man that's so obnoxious.

    love the sheen on the jersey! this is a fun set even though, like you, i'm not into football (at least haven't been for the last 15 years).

    but for your son's sake: go Broncos!

    1. Ha! That was great :) Is it like Beetlejuice -- if you say Superbowl three times do you summon a demon ghost thingie of football games past?!

      I went to school in Steelers country, I'm surrounded by Patriot die-hards, and I'm not sure I'm capable of caring less about football. But my boys love it.

      Noah appreciates all the Broncos love :) He's an excited little boy!!

  2. My boyfriend is a Broncos fan. He's also a huge Alabama fan, but college football is over for the moment. I've been learning to be supportive. I admit that I don't "get" football, but if he doesn't mind if I draw than I am happy to sit on the couch and watch with him. He's going to a superbowl party Sunday. I am not. :)

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who uses football games as an opportunity to catch up on art! Or genealogy. Either way, I don't actually watch the game. But the guys in my house like the company. I'm sure yours does, too!
