Now onto my project -

 This is a picture of my son that I took in the car one day while at a stop light and for some reason I love it!!! He normally never lets me take good photos so I was so happy to have this photo. I have a hard time with making stuff for him because I feel like I can't do him justice but this turned out perfect...I used my Beep Beep cartridge for the tank and the football was a layer on Playtime and I wanted them both because he admires my brother and wants to be a Marine when he grows up and he is totally into Football with my boyfriend now and he doesn't miss a game or an opportunity to talk football.

Thanks for stopping by!!! Your next stop is
