New SOUS Challenge!

Happy Friday all my scrappy friends! 
Time for a new sketch challenge so go to Stuck on U Sketches and check it out!

Here's what I created with it:


One of my first projects when I started scrapping was creating a Sports album for my son. I started with pee-wee soccer and T-Ball at age 4 and his sports pics for every season through high school. Then I got sidetracked...he is a Senior in college and this is from Junior year of High School..so with this awesome sketch I present the shortest career in Hockey ever. Hayden always played basketball in the winter and the winter of his Junior year he told me that he and his good buddy were going to play hockey. Neither one of them had EVER played hockey. They borrowed equipment,drove themselves to the 5 am practices and between the both of them, maybe they had 30 minutes of playtime the whole season. They had a blast! I didn't understand at the time, but I think they loved being able to play a sport with no expectations, since both of them are talented athletes which produces pressure to perform at their Varsity levels. I have circulation issues and fibro but made every game for those 5 minutes of play time. These pics will always make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by and we would LOVE to see what you create with the sketch! Give it a try and link up here for a chance to win a snazzy "Top 3" badge!

WONDERFUL hockey layout! Having had two boys who played hockey from the time they were 7 until 17, I know what it's like in the hockey world. I absolutely love, that they were playing for the pure enjoyment of it! And kudos to them, for giving it a try, with no previous experience!
