Happy Valentine's Day!


 Life is good.  The boys are all blooming with activities that they love.  I thought I'd share a few pictures from the weekend. Ryan and Jonathon both had show choir.  Jonathon's group performed really well and took third for the middle school groups. Ryan's group took 1st place with best band, vocals and choreography. It was a really exciting weekend for both of them.  Pat and Marcel participated in Marcel's pinewood derby race. He won one heat and a certificate for most interesting card, but lost the second heat.  This is the 14th and last year for Pat to help build cars for pinewood derby. Hard to believe he's done it every year for 14 straight!  No pictures of Collin, but he scored his first two baskets ever in his basketball game. He is very proud and it is so adorable.

I got home from show choir and was itching to create today. So...a quick Valentine's card inspired by Maile.  I love how she always cuts out a portion of the panel of her cards and she certainly is the master of enamel dots.  I think you can see how I was inspired. I didn't have any PTI Valentine sentiments, so I used one from Hero Arts.  This card will be for Jonathon's girlfriend, Kyleigh :).

Lynn the arrows are a great design element on your Maile card, the cut panel looks great. Your weekend sounds so fun and so busy you must be glad to be back at work--LOL Ryan and Jonathan are so alike. Congratulations all around.
