picture edited using instructions in tutorial for this challenge
picture is my niece pitching to me during our "softball practice" while I was visiting her a few weeks ago in Alabama. She's a fast pitch pitcher, I'm a slow pitch player, lol, so we had some things to learn about each other's style.
For the background paper, I used two papers from Julie Mead's Play & Grow Series and blended them by setting the top layer to 60% opacity
paper - "Play & Grow Forever papers" by Julie Mead, "Leisure Days" by Julie Bullock
title box, scroll - "Play & Grow Forever elements" by Julie Mead
ball - "Playtime" by Carol Baumann
arrows - "Simply Stitching Arrows 1" and "Simply Stitching Arrows 2" by Christine Nash, "Doodled Arrows" by Scrapdolly (recolored)
brads - "Little Man" by Amy Bleser

Who's Afraid of Taba's Fast Pitch?
When Taba wound up for her first pitch, I knew I was in trouble. In slow pitch softball we use an underhand pitch, 6 feet from the ground on an arc that ends in a bounce on home plate if you don’t swing. Fast pitch softball can break your leg. Dana helped me to express the differences to Taba, who seemed a little surprised that us “oldies” are such wimps, lol. She used her wind up pitch, but at a lower intensity, which I found was fairly easy to connect with; my hits were going longer than usual. Good practice for me.
