Happy Dancing for You {and weekend recap}

 
Happy Wednesday my friends.  The week is flying by...I called Pat last night on my way home thinking it was already Wednesday so I'm feeling a day ahead a a day behind at the same time.  This card above feels messy to me. I like it better in person than in the photo above, but I was trying to work with water!  I inked up my stamped and then sprayed them with water before stamping so that is why the inking is uneven. The purple stamps I stamped off several times and splattered them a bit.  Not sure what I think but I'm posting anyway.  This card and the card I'm posting tomorrow will go to my two oldest nieces. They both have awesome internships for the summer. Elizabeth will be interning at Georgia Pacific (engineering) this summer and Madeleine will be interning with The Limited companies (fashion design). They are both extremely talented and I'm so proud of them.  I'm entering this card in the One Layer Simplicity Challenge.


I also wanted to share pictures from our weekend.  We always have a ball when Andrew and Sara.  Unfortunately Marcel is not in any of the pictures as he had the stomach flu on Friday night. We kept him home during the day on Saturday so that he didn't pass it on to anyone.  Here are a few snapshots from the weekend.  Top left are Collin and Erin. Collin had a crush on Erin. It was adorable. They had a ball chatting with each other and dancing/singing their hearts out at the show choir competition.  Collin is pretty shy so he normally won't sing or dance in front of anyone.  He proclaimed on the car ride home, "I danced and sang out loud.  I never do that.  What the heck is going on?  Maybe I could go on stage and be in show choir, but that would be a lot of people to do it in front off."  So sweet and funny at the same time.  After the competition (bottom left), Pat and Andrew got our guitars out and were having a little jam session. It's the first time they've played together then we've been visiting. I have a feeling next time we get together, they will be down in the basement playing a lot!  Of course, Sara and I had a fabulous time catching up.
 
Ryan's team won grand champions for the competition. On the right, they are waiting for the daytime awards.  On the left, they are on stage celebrating their win on stage.  You can see Ryan's excited in the front middle. I think he might be singing! 

 
Jonathon's group did awesome too taking thrid at the competition. On right right, Jonathon came buy at night to see everyone. Love his smile...says it all.  Despite being up at 5 am to compete at 8:25 he was still smiles at 10:30 at night. And our niece, Kate, came to cheer on the boys too!  All and all a great weekend!
