Hey everyone! :) Well, I have had a kind of rough weekend. My fibromyalgia has been acting up all week and I haven't been able to take my relaxers and actually get my pain under control. My son had The Big Sky Football Camp with Jack Johnson (he is a legend for high school football here in Great Falls, MT) and it started pretty early and i couldn't drive him there safely so I didn't take anything until after I picked him up from camp on Friday. So, for two days I was stuck in bed or on the couch. When I did make it downstairs into my Scrap Cave I was able to work on and eventually finish this:

I love this LO! :) It just came together and looks so much like Jon, my son. The pics are from his 11th Birthday Party. We took him and a couple of friends to a Paintball Park a little bit outside of Great Falls, on Bootlegger Trail. Those who live here know where I am talking about. It was so much fun watching the boys...well, BE BOYS! :) They had me crackin' up! :)

So, now for some details. :) I was able to "pop" the grenades that I cut with my Indie Art Cricut Cart. This is one of my faves, although it is hard to pick just ONE Cricut Cart that I LOVE! ;) TeeHee! :)
I love this part of the LO. To go along with the "Military" type feel of the LO, I took a punch that I have had for years from Paper Shapers and punched the dog tags out. I then took some Tim Holtz chains (not sure this is what they are called, but that would be what attached the tags to the LO. I also thought it may look neat so I "hooked" them on to a big brad (not sure who made it).
I tore the "crazy good times" and "Friggin' Sweet" titles out of a page of We R Memory Keepers, "Teen Angst" paper pad. I also journaled on the pics instead of just on the dog tags. I used the Sakura, Glaze pens in black to do this. Thanks for looking and I hope to be able to blog about some more scrappy goodness soon! :)
