The Very Best Gym Coach

My son Chris has been coaching gym to after school children for a while now. It is hard to get photos of him in the gym because the light is poor, but I managed to snap these when he was taking his little sister through a warm up before her level 2 badge test. I based the layout on this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch. I used a Tim Holtz clock mask for the background and my papers are left-over scraps from a variety of manufacturers. I love the scrapware chipboard circle strip along the bottom. It reminded me of the rings that are part of the apparatus that Sophie uses (and Chris teaches) at the gym.
