End of Show Choir Competition Season!

Happy Tuesday!  Popping in with another card that I made a while ago.  Featuring Hero Arts butterflies and a PaperSmooches sentiment.  I love the soft color palette and layered butterflies.
And...I thought I'd share a few more pictures from the last week of show choir competitions.  Ryan's cousins came to his regular choir concert when he had his solo.  Aren't they too cute!  Thanks for coming Ella, Shelby & Jay!
 
And...here's the last couple photos from last weekend's competition.  We won grand champions (isn't the trophy massive!?), best vocals and best choreography.  What a way for the kids to end the season on a high note!  And...we were so thankful to make it there.  About 10 minutes from where we were competing there was a bridge that had restricted weight limits (just imposed that day)...so we had to turn around and go back to another bridge which added an extra 70 minutes to the drive.  Craziness when we got to the competition and all the girls were trying to get ready!  But we got it all together and came out strong!
 
A close up of the group!

And time for a little Loveland Revolution cheer!

Oh wow! Big congrats to Ryan and the choir! Glad it all went well despite the last minute diversion. :)

And your card is lovely - a perfect sweet design for a get well card.

Congratulations! So exciting! You are one busy person, Lynn!

I love the pastels of your card - I tend to shy away from them. I saw those butterflies and thought, "Now where did she find those?" They're beautiful and go so well with the PS sentiment. :)

Oh my gosh, it looks like the kids have so much fun doing show choir!! And I'm loving that card, the bow near the top with the sentiment up there is a great layout :)

CONGRATS to Ryan!!!! What an accomplishment. You must be super duper proud, Lynn.
My sister's show choir has their last performance this weekend. Since it is in Lebanon, I am taking my boys so they can check it out. I don't think that they understand that she is the director. I think they expect to see her in a dress and performing! LOL!

Those soft blue butterflies make my heart go pitter patter. *sigh*
Congrats to Ryan! What a thrilling experience that must have been for the kids (and the parents, too!).

Congrats to the show choir! What a great way to end the season. That's crazy about the drive there. I hope the kids didn't flip out too much.

Great butterfly card too. I really need to make some crafty time soon.
