Dynamic Duos #12 & Rugby

This weeks Dynamic Duos Challenge was to create a project using Black Tie and Poppy Parade with the option of using punches.  I have no idea why I struggled with this one but I will just put it that life has gotten much busier than usual this summer.  I have been waiting for the opportunity to use my rooster die from Papertrey and when I was looking at my red gingham paper I decided it was time.  There is always someone who needs some encouragement or needs to be reminded to step back and take it all in.




I wanted to share this photo of my son taken at his last rugby game on Tuesday night.  I love this picture because it isn't posed, he has his game face on, so focused and sporting his new crazy rugby haircut.  I wish I had taken a picture of his rubgy shorts after the game, they are WHITE!  I have never seen grass stains so vivid green, but after soaking and scrubbing they are white again just in time for tonight.  LOL  He plays for Team Ontario and just found out he will be going to the Nationals in Sherbrooke Quebec in August then two days later he is going to compete in Toronto at the Ontario Summer Games.  A proud mama moment.

Cardstock: Pure Poppy, True Black, White
Patterned Paper: Pure Poppy Paper Pack
Stamps: Flower Fusion #10
Ink:  True Black
Dies: Mat Stack 1, On the Farm, Banner Borders

Tracey, your boy is such a handsome rugged lad!! He could be a model along with whatever other pursuits he engages in. Thank you for sharing your proud mama moment!! I've totally forgotten your card which is probably entirely inappropriate.
