Sniffles, Coughs and Scrapping!

I'm home from work today because this "cold" really grabbed hold of me. I slept no more than 3 hours last night, fighting with my nose. One side wants to be stuffy, the other side running like a faucet! I got the kids off to school, loaded my self up with some cold medicine and antibiotics and sat down to scrap a little. I've had this idea bouncing around in my head for a while now and with all the yuckiness from my cold in there now, I had to get it out!! LOL!! This is my son and his best friends (sans a couple) who are all on the same Prep Baseball team. There are others on the team but this group has been friends for years and they do everything together! Of course MY SON is the one being goofy in the front!! I cut the balls, gloves and bat out on my Cricut. The balls were a part of an entire baseball title that was a free download at The Quilling Patch. Using my SCAL program, I broke it apart and used only the balls. The gloves and bat were vector images that I traced in SCAL and cut. I'm happy with how this turned out. With two boys who have played baseball since age 4, I have done a TON of baseball layouts and they all start to look the same. I like the change on this one, except that when I was cropping the picture to upload I noticed that one of the baseball gloves is backwards! Oh well! I never claimed to be perfect! The other thing that is different for me on this page is that I did not use a single bit of patterened paper! GASP!!!

That's all I have for now. I'm going to see if I can catch up on some of that missed sleep from last night but I am sure I will be back with more later on today or tomorrow!! Oh, and tomorrow is the first day of the "Bakers Dozen" class I am taking at Big Picture Scrapbooking so I am really looking forward to that. Stay tuned...I will post what I create in class here too!
