Use it Tuesday Challenge #42: Use orange

It is the 4th Tuesday of the month, so it is time for another challenge at Use it Tuesday!

The challenge is: Use orange! Of course this time of the year you see orange all over the place because of Halloween. But if you're living in a country that doesn't celebrate Halloween, like me, you can use your imagination and creativity to use another subject that involves orange.

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Like I said, we don't celebrate Halloween overhere in The Netherlands, so I had to come up with something else. For us Dutchies, when we think about orange, the first thing that comes up in our mind is our national color and of course our national soccer team. Soccer is the number 1 sport overhere and when the team is playing the European or World Cup, the entire nation turns orange. People dress up in the weirdest orange outfits and even little babies are dressed in orange. 
This photo of Jan was during his first European Cup last summer. I grabbed all my Bella Blvd leftovers from different collections and picked out all the orange stuff. Funny little detail: when we talk about our national soccer team, we call it the orange lion. So the orange lion on this layout actually means something ! :-)

Bella Blvd Baby Boy: Wild about you, Baby Blue, Borders, Cute Cuts

Bella Blvd Sophisticates: Ciao Chip Simply Simona Brownie, Ciao Chip Essentials Apricot & Banana, Quattrofina Mustard & Apricot

Bella Blvd Sunshine & Happiness: Popsicle Kisses, Alpha + Bits
Cardstock: white, orange
Mr. Huey's Sherbet
SC mask Elongated Hexagons

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday November 2nd on the Use it Tuesday blog. Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use it Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Have a look at Use it Tuesday to see what the other DT members created and please leave them some love!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday!
