The Big Game Mini album-die cut reveal SOUS

Welcome fellow scrappers.. 
I'm so happy that you stopped by today to see what I've been working on and trust me when I say "this took some working on!"..LOL  
Us girls over at SOUS are having our Die Cut Friday reveal today and our very own Sandi Clarkson chose today's die cut theme and its "PUT ME IN COACH!".. anything to do with sports..

Since we live in Finland, we don't have any sports activities that my kids are interested in and so, I don't have any photos of them doing any kind of sports.. other than playing video games and I don't think that would qualify as sports..LOL
So, I decided to grab some of our vacation photos from a few years back, when my brother-in-law took our boys and my hubby to a baseball game.. two of them actually, one was a night game and the other was not.  I mixed photos from both games into this mini..
and so here is my project:

This is a mixed size mini album.. and it measures about 5"x7".
I used the Complete Boy collection by My Minds Eye.  The title is on the Graphically Speaking cartridge and the stars are on George and Basic Shapes.  I found the shield on Create-a-critter under phrases..

and for the inside of the mini album:
My sons and their twin cousins at the ball game..I wanted to incorporate some baseball sayings and then the die cuts.  The baseball and bar are on Boys will be Boys cartridge and the baseball hat is on Pooh & that hat by the way, enough so that I actually used it three times in this mini..LOL

My son Adam is on the left and Aaron is on the right with his cousin Damian in the background..

The boys are all on the left side and then their uncle Trent is on the right with my son Aaron in the star and his cousin Damian in the background.. My hubby took all of these pics, so I had none of him..

the boys!!  The balls and gloves are on the Boys will be Boys cartridge..

I ran out of photos and couldn't find that file on my computer anywhere..So, I added a pull out tag onto this page for me to add another photo as soon as I find them..LOL

and the last page.  I need to add something onto the left side page, but haven't figured out what yet.. These manly mini's are a bit difficult for me to create... but I had a lot of fun with it :)
