Birthday Balloons & Show Choir

I'm taking advantage of our snow day today to get a card and some photos of our weekend posted.  We spent a fun, busy weekend in Ohio to wrap up my daughter Michal's show choir competition season.  We were blessed to stay with Lynn and her family.  Since her son Ryan is also in show choir we got to see his group compete. They were amazing!

I just need to say that Lynn and Pat are raising four wonderful young men.  It was so great to meet all the boys and spend time laughing and playing games together.  Her little Marcel is hilarious and adorable.  Lynn could create a whole new blog all about the clever things he says and never run out of material.  He had us in tears a few times.

Here are a few shots from the competition.  Lynn has some great pictures of our time together on her blog post HERE.

I also wanted to share a card that I made for my nephew's 2nd birthday.  He's all about colors and the alphabet so I made this fun card for him.  He loved the background and started naming all the letters.  This boy already knows all the upper and lowercase letters of the alphabet.  This card was inspired by Gayatri's awesome card HERE.

Well, I'm off to go shovel the driveway.  I'm so ready for Summer.  At this point I can skip through Spring and head straight to a HOT summer day.

Your card is adorable! I love the top one floating off the card and the use of the cloud for the sentiment.

Oh I love the picture of Michal's group...that is an absolutely fabulous shot! The boys are still talking about Erin and Michal and of course, Marcel wants Andrew to come sword fight with him again! Thank you so much for the kind words and right back at you my dear friend!

Spring/summer and flip flops every day...I am absolutely ready! Your card is all the bright primary colors.
