Bitten By The Bug 2--Baseball.......

So, so excited when I saw that my teammate Karen picked a baseball for this week's challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2! And....even better it was one of the relatively new baseball's. But, don't worry if you want to play along and don't have the one that she picked from Life's A Party on page 37 you can use any baseball. Make sure you go back to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out all the BASEBALLS!!! Then you can make your own project and play along in the challenge.
If you read my Blog regularly (thanks!) you know that back in May we were able to take our entire family on a Cub's Destination Dream Trip to Boston to see the Chicago Cubs play the Boston Red Socks. This has been a dream of my Dad's since I was a little girl and more recently a dream of my son's. So happy we were able to make their dreams come true. I intend to make an entire mini book of the trip but at least I got a layout done.....
On a side note......yes that beautiful bush in the background is my yard. Thank goodness for things that just grow and don't need me to water them. As for the other 50 or so plants I planted back in May--not so good. No one told me you had to stay home and water them, LOL! Just kidding....except about the part that they are dead.
