On a personal note it’s been  crazy hectic, but wonderful last few days with both our daughter, Kaitlin and my sister in town. It was the first opportunity for us to see Kaitlin since she left for the Seattle Cascades back in June and her hug was intense when I saw her on Friday morning at South Cobb High School where they were staying and practicing.

As you can see big smiles all around so I guess she misses us. It was also the first opportunity for me to see the corp in action. It was really quite interesting to see them working – and they are working hard in Hotlanta as they referred to it.  I hated to tell them it’s been a cool summer so far for the most part. LOL

Seattle Cascades DCI 2015

They performed at the Atlanta Dome on Saturday and received their highest score to date!

Larry was sooo excited to see the kid – he’s a proud dad and is counting down the last 2 weeks of tour.

We’ve also been enjoying the beautiful North Georgia Mountains with my sister, Mandy. She loves the water falls around the area and was able to fit three in this trip. Here is a group shot at Anna Ruby Falls near Helen.

It was a nice Sunday afternoon hike. Even our son Johnathan took a break from his buggy and joined us for this side trip.

I’ll be back on track later this week and look forward to sharing some more of the swaps that I’ve received. So many great ideas!

Watercolor Wings

This is a quick post today since I’ve got tons to do today. But I wanted to share this card with you before I got started. I just love this new stamp set Watercolor Wings – it’s ALOT of fun to play with and since it is a 3 step stamp set and has a set of coordinating framelits dies. Whoo hoo! Lots of combinations can be made. Versatility and butterflies what’s not to love?

This card is one I’m using for my swap tonight at the Stamp Divas team meeting. I love that we get to share ideas with each other and will look forward to sharing the swap cards that I receive with you next week too!

On a personal note – This proud mom wants to share the latest on our marching daughter. We got our first photo from her late last night after her first DCI performance in Seattle with the Cascades. (I can’t tell you how happy we were to get something after 3 weeks of All Days – basically DCI boot camp. LOL)

Look at that huge smile on her face! She is having the experience of a life time. And while I don’t understand entirely why Kaitlin loves to be pushed to her physical limits  and stand for hours on end in the hot sun. I’ve got to admire her passion and drive.

So I wanted to say thank you to all of you, my customers and friends,  for helping make her dreams come true this summer. Every ready to mail card that you’ve purchase has helped get her to Seattle! Now we just have to get her home from Indianapolis in August.

Of course, it’s an on going fundraiser for Kaitlin and I’ve just added more cards to the box – so if you would like to browse next time you’re in my classroom Kaitlin would appreciate it!

I know some of you aren’t familiar with DCI. So if you are wondering what exactly she is doing – here is a taste of what DCI is all about. Not the best video, but it brought tears to this proud mom’s eyes to see them on the field for their first performance! Now I just have to try and figure out which one she is before they make it to the Atlanta Dome in July!!!


They’ve left Duvall, Washington last night and have hit the road to start their tour. They are doing about 19 cities in 30 days before they get to finals. Right now they are on some gym floor  in Oregon sleeping and will perform tonight in the first of their DCI events. Whoo hooo! Isn’t it great to be young and adventurous?
