Oh boy!

Good morning everyone!  Welcome to the newest challenge at Challenge YOUrself.  This 
month, it is all about the guys in your life.  

Here's the challenge:

 Create a layout about YOU AND THE MALE(S) in your life.  
This could be your father, grandfather, husband, son, a furry family pet. 
{yes... we love our pets too}.
Remember to include YOU in the layout.

♥  ♥  

I knew it would be fun to make a layout about the boys in our lives, and immediately I thought of a photo that my sister-in-law took in the fall, when we went to see our nephew play football last year.  All of the pictures that she took and sent to me are wonderful.  Here are a few that are very precious to me.  ♥ 

Anne was so happy to watch Michael play:

Of course, she had to get one with Sarah, Michael's sister, in the photo, too!

And here is the one I used for my layout with ME in the photo:

I edited it a bit:

And here is my completed page:

I added a strip of vellum, then stitched over the photo and title so that I could add a chipboard saying "Playing to Win" and some bling underneath:

I enjoyed making this page and had a lot of fun with it.  I hope that all of you scrappers out there get a chance to play along with Challenge YOUrself this month.  Happy weekend everyone!  

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Hugs!
