MS Spartan Layout

Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to another PDE Linky Party challenge.  This week we are creating anything but a card.  As you can tell I chose to create a layout for my project.  This week's challenge was absolutely perfect for me because it gave me that push I needed to get another layout completed.  I have all these pictures printed and sorted just waiting to be committed to a layout and yet I spend more time creating cards and other projects. 
So this week I did it.  I created my first layout using pictures from the Spartan Sprint my son Andrew and I ran together this past October in Mississippi.  The pictures on this layout are from the last portion of the race.  We had to trudge through about 150 yards of water.  Of course we could have swam but I don't recall anyone thinking to do so.  After we got from one side of the pond to the other we were met with a slip wall right on the bank.  Thus my scrapping at the bottom of the layout.
It's somewhat difficult to scrap pictures from my mud runs/obstacle course races but thank goodness for Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  I sent an email to Tricia along with a couple of other SVG creators last year asking if they'd ever thought about creating something for this theme and Tricia was the only one to respond.  Needless to say I snatched up this mud run file as soon as it was released!
And in a couple of weeks I'll be doing my first race of the season with my oldest daughter Faith.  I can't wait either.....
Now that you've seen my take on this week's project, be sure to check out the other great designs our team created for you this week.  Then after you've been amply inspired, create your own project, link up and play along with us.

And now I'm off to enter my layout into the following challenge:
