A Little Go Blue and a Card.

So I rarely post pics of my fam, other than those that end up on scrapbook pages. Since these were on my camera as I uploaded some card pics yesterday, I thought some of you may like to see the handsome men in my life! If not, then scroll down to the crafty stuff!
These pictures are from the U of M football game we took the boys to on Saturday while we were up in Michigan. I am surrounded by boys who LOVE all things sports. I like sports, was an athlete myself back in highschool and I enjoy a good college football game, but I enjoy it in small doses! We are BIG Michigan fans, I went there, my DH did his residency there, and that is were we met. I just love all the blue and gold in these pictures. Here they are hanging out at the tailgate before the game.
Almost the best family picture, considered it for our Christmas card, except little man is more interested in his sucker than looking at the camera. Still cute, though!This is what I did most of the game, held Nicholas while he tried to get some rest time in. It was hot and it was a missed-nap-afternoon. Plus he was fighting his cold and just wanted snuggles. I'll take 'em anywhere I can get them.

This is one of the few smiles we got out of Ryan. While he loves football, he was NOT loving the cramped seats and HOT, HOT sun. And then there's my ultimate sports fan, Joshua. He was in heaven. Loved every minute of it and only complained when we left the game early due to the other two. Okay, so on to the craft stuff! This card I did for this week's color challenge on SCS. The colors this week were-elegant eggplant, old olive, and basic black. I subbed out the eggplant and used razzleberry instead. The layout of the card came from a beautiful card featured in our Stampin' Success magazine by Amy Rohl. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day :) Hugs, Lisa

  6. Lisa, this is my favorite!! The colors are spectacular and as much as I want to chant "cheater cheater" for using Razzleberry, I'm so glad you did because it looks amazing!! The striped ribbon with the olive button are so striking too! Love the scalloped edges at top and bottom, and just every detail. This is the bomb! See you tomorrow!
