Thanks for Everything

Another show choir weekend is in the books!  Unfortunately, we aren't able to use flash cameras in the audience which is completely understandable and the couple of pictures I took without a flash are 100% fuzzy...so candid shots will have to do!  Ryan and Elizabeth...not much time for the three of us to hang out together, but Elizabeth and I had a great time together.  I loved chatting with her about what is going on in her life, where she's thinking about going to college, etc.  I love her!

And here's the three of us.  You can see Ryan is growing!  Not saying much that he is taller than me (as I'm all of 5' 1") but he is passing up his uncles on the Mangan side of the family...

And here's Ryan with a few of his friends:  Brighton, Matt, Jake  and Maddie.  I have to say I smile every time I see Jake on stage.  If you've been a long time follower, you may remember me talking about Jake here.  He's amazing!  A two time cancer survivor and his smile simply melts my heart.  He's one amazing young man.

And...this picture was snapped right before our school picked up best vocals, best choreography and grand champs!

And I wouldn't want to leave you without a card for this week's CASE Study Challenge.  I love pink and green (my favorite preppy color combo) and wanted to quickly ink up my PTI anniversary set.  So off I went stamping away.  Don't look too closely the two step stamping isn't quite lined up :)
Below is the fabulous CASE Study inspiration...

Lovely interpretation of Karola's card for your CASE, Lynn. I'm itching to get my hands on this anniversary set, and I think your two step stamping looks fantastic!

Beautiful take of the case study card. I actually like the stamping not lined up. Love the placement of the sentiment.

Also want to let you know that I forwarded you a Liebster Blog award. I totally won't be offended if you choose not to respond or forward the blog award along, but I just wanted to say "Thanks" for all your kind encouraging words and awesome card inspiration!

Pink and green really are the best preppy colours aren't they?

Love the photos and card, Lynn! It's so nice to have our sons taller than us, huh? (I am also around 5 ft 1" and was worried that my David will be shorter than me--LOL)!Congrats on making the top 3 over CASE Study!
