Hello Scrapbookers! Welcome Back to Day 19 of The Hunger Games Scrapbooking Challenge.
I've been blogging a lot about Ice Cream for Breakfast Day on 3/21/12 - March 21st is Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. Here's Why. We are hoping to reach 10,000 members of the Facebook Event "Ice Cream for Breakfast (March 21)" created by Bruce C. Rosenberg before he passed from cancer, 3/21/12 marks one year from his diagnosis date, he passed away 9 days before the holiday he created. Please go join now if you haven't already, and if you have THANK YOU!
I'm thinking Haymitch could have taken a page from my friend, Bruce's playbook. Instead of drowning his sorrows in alcohol like Haymitch, when dealt a life challenge, Bruce decided to go forth happy anyway and to spread his joy by creating "Ice Cream for Breakfast Day."

Ok, back to The Hunger Games Scrapbooking Challenge for real:
Haymitch Abernathy: "Haymitch is Katniss' and Peeta's mentor. He is drunk at almost any given time, with a glass in one hand and knife in the other. He drinks to forget the memories the 50th Hunger Games, which he was crowned victor of. He promised he would sober up long enough for Katniss and Peeta to play the games and help them. He sends Katniss gifts throughout the games to help her survive, and sometimes Katniss believes that his gifts always seem to have good timing and there might be some kind of connection between them. He won during the second Quarter Quell, where double the tributes were required to participate in this deadly game. Katniss and Peeta's guide in The Hunger Games. Has an addiction to alcohol, and gets drunk to escape the world around him. He was the only living victor in District 12 before Katniss and Peeta. Haymitch is their mentor throughout The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. He is the one that sends the gifts from sponsors as well." (source The Hunger Games wiki)
So what can we take for scrapbooking inspiration from Haymitch? Here are five themes: 1. Coach/mentor; 2. victor/winner; 3. life challenges; 4. games/sports; and 5. gifts.
1. Coach / Mentor
2. Victor / Winner
3. Challenges / Life Lessons
4. Games / Sports
