He gets it from me!

My son, who just turned 7, has just entered his first online crafty challenge! I don't know which one of us is more excited! The Sketches 4 All group has a new kids only challenge for kids ages 4-15.

The first challenge in his age group was to make a drawing or card and it had to include: 3 colors, an animal, and glitter. This is what he came up with:
Yellow, blue and green construction paper, a giraffe he drew with crayons, and yellow and blue glitter glue. He also cut up some white foam to make those embellishments.

When he was done he looks at me with those big brown eyes and says, "Do you think I'll win?". Gosh, I hope he does so he doesn't get his heart broken! But, if he doesn't I guess it will help him learn to deal with losing too. Even if he doesn't win the crafting goodies I might just have to buy him my own prize just to encourage him more.

This just made me so happy and I had to share!!!!
