A True Friend Is A Gift To Cherish

Welcome once again to my blog. I have been getting my
DT work done but have been a little slow posting this 
month as I have had some time sick and I was no sooner
better and my beautiful son Harley become sick. He is still
unwell but sleeping in the beanbag beside me so I have a 
little time to catch up.

The LO I have to show you is for the my DT challenge over
at Scrapbookit. Jo asked me to set the challenge for this month
and I don't think it was too hard. All you have to do is - 

1. Scrap a photo of a friend. 
2. Your layout must have the word friend in the title
3. Your LO must have  journaling which is more than a couple of words.

I don't think that is too hard. After setting it I received my pizza
box from Jo. As always I was excited to get it open and see what 
I would be working with......I had received Kaisercrafts - Game On!
Collection. I was so happy, Riley has been a competitive swimmer
for some years now. The challenge for me would be finding the right
photo for the challenge. This is what I come up with.

The photo is of Riley and his fellow team mate Shogo. I have always
loved this photo and new straight away it was perfect for this LO.
The chippie is by WOW. I used modeling paste on it and then sprayed 
it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst - Blue Hawaiian Blue.
The collectables come in two different packets. One is Equipment
and the other Awards. I placed a little gorse on it too which I colored
with Distress Ink - Faded Jeans.
I used some sulky metallic cotton which Riley assured me had
a look of water :) All the other sporting ranges look just as great to.
On the white corrugated cardboard I sprayed a little Perfect Pearls
Mist - Turquoise and then dripped and let run some of it and also
some of the Lindy's Stamp Gang - Blue Hawaiian Blue.The edges 
were inked with Distress Ink - Faded Jeans.
I hope you have liked this LO and if you have the time please hop 
over to the Scrapbookit blog and join in the fun. The lucky winner 
will receive an awesome prize from Jo.
