My Superstar!

I made this layout for the June Week 1 Sketchy Saturday challenge over at Simply Scrapping Crafts. The sketch had a clean and simple style, which inspired me to make something with some of my son's wrestling photos. I tend to get a bit carried away with the frou-frou stuff on my layouts, so I knew he would appreciate it if I kept it a bit more "manly" on this one.

Chris has a lot of energy, and he always paces and paces around during the wrestling match while the other weight classes go before him. I don't know how he has any energy left over to wrestle when his turn comes, but he is a superstar - he just has a lot of extra energy that he has to burn off. These photos were taken during the Virginia Duels in January 2010 - he did so well at that tournament that there was a newspaper article about him! Yes, I am a proud mommy!
