Thank You {and show choir camp}

Hello there friends. A quick card for this week's PaperSmooches Sparks Challenge.  I loved the stripes on the inspiration photo and used it as my stepping off point for my card.  All the stamps are from PS (Reflections, Bold Buzzwords and Many Thanks).

On Saturday, I picked up Ryan from show choir camp. To say he was beaming from ear to ear was an understatement. He had an absolutely amazing time making new friends, learning and performing.  It was a fabulous trip home hearing about his week.  He was so happy and there is simply nothing better than your child being so happy.   There were seven show choir groups total (75 kids each) and Ryan also participated in a vocal jazz group.  The vocal jazz group was a try out group so he was extra thrilled to be able to participate in that as well.  If you're interested, feel free to check out the YouTube video. The vocal jazz performance is at 1:08 (Ryan is in front of the mic on the left hand side) and the group he was in for the show choir performance is at 1:36.  He is in the second row on the middle slightly to the left at the start.  I think he's ready to go back for next year already.

It is so nice to see such a huge group of kids dedicated to what they love, awesome video! Way better than Glee and I am sure a lot less drama! Oh I love your Sparks card, sorry your kids have totally taken over your blog this week! ;)

Super pretty card, Lynn!
And congratulations to your son -- that looks so fun! My son made it into his auditioned jazz choir at his high school -- he would probably love to go to a camp like this!

A classic beauty! Love the stripes and "Lynn's PS flowers" (as I call the Reflections set!). Ryan looks so happy in all those photos. What a great experience!
