"Sisterhood of Scrap" Blog Party Challenge Day 2

Hi Party Gamers !
Hope you are all having a fun time with the game challenges hosted by the "Sisterhood of Scrap's" Anniversary Blog Party.
Congratulations Sisters on your first Anniversary looking forward to the coming year !!

One of my favorite childhood games to play,was jump rope.
The fun involved 2 twirlers and one jumper.
The jumper would sing a skipping song, as she sang,the twirlers would speed up the pace as the song progressed.
The object,to be able to skip steady till the song was complete,if unable,next up would be a twirler.
The one with the most jumps would have the honors of taking the skipping rope home till the next challenge.

Here is my game challenge for you in honor of skipping rope
jump Rope/must use fiber
3 Players/must use three photos
Skipping song/must use a Song Title for lo or a verse from a song.

The little cutie in my layout example is my Grandniece Hannah.

I also combined this weeks sketch challenge at the sisterhood with my crop challenge.Don't you just love mixing challenges!
