Rangers Game

When my son sent me this picture yesterday afternoon I was so excited because just a few hours earlier I had printed out the Make It Monday Sketch #64 at   "THE MEMORY NEST"  
I knew this would be the picture I would use with the sketch.   It couldn't be anymore perfect, my handsome grandson standing in front of a star for one of the players with the Texas Rangers outside the stadium after he and his Dad went together to Kai's first professional baseball game.

The yahoo scrapping group I'm in also has a challenge this month to have  Red, White & Blue as the prominent colors on your layout.   So I just had to find the papers to use, dark blue in the background and light blue on one of the stars and then two different patterned papers in red for the other two stars.   I inked them in opposite colors of red and blue and then matted them in white card stock and also matted the picture in white.   Red thickers for the title and red candi minis on the corners and my layout was complete.

"THE MEMORY NEST"  has sketch challenges all month, the more you enter the more times your name is put in for the grand prize at the end of the month of a $25 GC from The Memory Nest.
Plus there is going to be weekly prizes too.
