Embrace Today {and Ryan's Show Choir Performance}


Happy Monday.  I had a really nice relaxing weekend with our family and time with several of our friends.  We're in between show choir finishing and baseball/soccer starting. The boys are practicing, but games don't start for a couple of weeks. I took advantage of the touch of free time and spent a couple hours in my craft room yesterday.  I know I say this all the time, but I love creating.  I made this card for the current CASE this Sketch and the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  I think the sentiment on this card is perfect.  I will most likely send this to Pat's aunt.  She cares for Pat's uncle who had a stroke several years ago. She is so dedicated to him and really takes time to count her blessings despite very difficult circumstances.

Ryan's show choir video was also posted on You Tube over the weekend.  I loved their show this year.  If you're interesting in watching, click here.  I hope your week gets off to a great start.  Jonathon's hasn't been posted yet, but as soon as it is I will be sure to share that as well.
