I won a Challenge!

OMG!  How exciting!  I enter challenges sometimes, not with the prize as my goal but to keep my MoJo up and to try and provide some variety to my layouts.

I do have “issues” with the opportunity to take photo’s because, as most will understand, Liam’s Aspbergers does not really allow him to participate in all and sundry and he has a strong need to stay at home and just be himself at weekends.  There are only so many photos to take, and scrap, of Liam on the the computer or playing the Wii, lol.

However!  For his Dad’s birthday this year (40th) we had Andrea and Ivan here along with SIL Melanie and her fiancée Aaron for the weekend and we went to the see our home team, the Hurricanes, play rugby against the Crusaders at the stadium in Wellington. (We won, by the way)

Liam often interacts with Dad while on the computer and Dad is watching a game on TV. I love it when this happens and it never fails to make me smile!

MIL had sent down her old team supporters jersey for Liam and, yellow being his favourite colour, this was very well received.

So – the challenge . . . this was run at Scrap Box NZ and it was to do a layout about sport.

I had heaps of product left from my SENZ class (Thanks Trina) and the colours just seemed to work for the photo.

Fiona offers a $20 voucher for the Scrap Box shop so I will have lots of fun working out how to spend it.  What’s the bet I don’t stop at $20 though, hehe.  Thanks so much Fiona, you made my day.

(PS – Didn’t make the design team for Southern Girls Challenge blog.  Oh well, maybe another time. )
