You Leaf Me No Choice-SOUS DT project

I'm so super psyched today is Friday and tomorrow is a holiday here in Finland, which means I have all weekend off ..Whew!! TGIF for sure..LOL  and of course another reason why I love Fridays is I get to share another project for our challenge blog S.O.U.S with you lovely ladies..  Along with our sketches we are doing Die cuts (as if you all didn't already know..LOL) and this Fridays Die Cut is to use a LEAF on your project..any project, be it a card, scrapbook layout, home decor.. anything goes!!
so, I chose to make a layout and I used a funny photo of my husband.. He has that Archie Bunker grin on his face and I love this photo of him cause it makes me laugh every time I look at it..LOL

and for the die cut leaves.. 
They are cut with my Cricut Expression and I used the "A Child's Year" cartridge 

So with that said, here is my project for this weeks challenge:

I chose these colors cause I'm working on remodeling our bedroom and these are the colors I'm going to adding to the decor..  brown, cream and light blue.. yummy!!!

and for a few close ups:

I made a journaling tag AGAIN..LOL
and the tag says :
"Through out the years we've shared many things, but the best things shared were the smiles!"

and for supplies used:
