Levi Sr. '98 ~ So Proud of U

Hi everyone!!  I haven't uploaded much lately... been a little busy with 2 DT projects due Thursday and I had the little ones from Friday thru Sunday noon..  But by golly I decided I was going to do a layout today after work and I did!!!  Yea for me!! 
I used the sketch from Stuck On U Sketches which is the current Pagemap sketch...
 I really had a lot of fun with this layout.  The only problem I had was keeping the bling to a minimum.  Since this is a layout of my son, Levi, daddy to Savannah and Colten, I don't think he would appreciate too much bling.  lol!..   A couple of months ago I got this gorgeous paper in one of my Swirlydoos kit but at the time didn't know what to do with it... Well I decided it went perfect with these photos of Levi with his Saxophone.  (BTW he was one heck of a jazz player in high school...  Just wished he would have continued with it... but then the guitar came into the picture and the saxophone was put aside!!)  Once I found the paper it really went together fairly quickly...  As you can see I just used 3 photos instead of 4.  Hope you like what I did! The challenge runs thru Friday, so why don't you give it a try and play along..
Here are a few challenges this qualifies for:
Charisma Cardz Challenge ~ All about Bling
Magical Crafts ~ Male/Father
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ One For The Boys
Scrap It With A Song ~ Jason Derulo ~ Ridin' Solo
"I'm feeling like a star, you can't stop my shine"
The Corrosive Challenge ~ Black and White with one other color

Here's my scrappy list of things I used:
Doodlebug Crushed Velvet ~ Beetle Black
Red Suede
Creative Imaginations ~ Encore
Creative Imaginations ~ Black Doily
The Paper Studio Crinkled Red
Prima Alphabet Stickers.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
Have a wonderful week!
Luv your visits so please stop back by anytime!!

Ok so I couldn't remember how old your kids were and I was off to read your profile. So my MIL just went a little darker and I loved it! I noticed that women seem to always think blonde is better (kinda like most women wear pink lipstick even if its not their color)..I am glad you went back to natural. I bet your skin coloring looks a lot brighter too! And good for your husband to make such a sweet comment!
Did you daughter have her baby yet? I saw she was due this month! At least I think thats what I read...
Well, to the LO now..the colors are really neat and I think the use of the sketch was great for what you ended up doing! Great job!
