LOAD212 - Day 26 - Awesome

The prompt for Lain Ehmann's Layout a Day challenge for Day 26 was - Girl Crush

Obviously, I went off prompt again today. I got up at 4:30 am today to drive to the other side of the state to watch my son compete in the wrestling elementary team state championship tournament. Returned home at 9:00 pm and made this photo collage and journaling while watching the Oscars. Phew. LONG DAY!

Journaling Reads:

Liam, if you could describe today using one word, what would it be? “AWESOME!”

1 Prior to the start of the match, Liam shakes hands with his first opponent of the day, pinning this Holt wrestler in the second period. 2 Liam warms up with teammate Alex Finney. 3 In solidarity with his Oxford wrestling brothers from elementary through high school, Liam dies his hair black for the state tournament weekend. 4 Coaches Curtis and Borg respectably and successfully argue with the referee over a scoring oversight in a key match between Matthew Curtis and his opponent from Holly. 5 In his second match of the day, Liam gets pinned by a tough competitor from Hartland. 6 Oxford coaches and wrestlers watch the action on the mat. 7 Oxford Elementary takes second place in the MYWAY Team State Championship, triumphing over Grand Blanc, Holt, and Holly, and falling to Hartland in the finals, out of a pool of ten schools.

Some observations about the process and the products used:

  1. Photos taken and scrapped ON THE SAME DAY!?!?! Oh, yeah!

  2. Picasa Photo collage. 'Nuff said.

  3. Cardstock, Punches (arrow, scallop, word window), and journaling pen. Who needs fancy products to scrapbook?!?
