Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

More singing and a BIG birthday

It's been a while since my last post - May just flew by!  I've been busy singing and crafting so thought I'd share a bit of each.

The weekend after Mother's Day found the City of Lakes Chorus at our Regional convention and competition held at the Mystic Lake Casino complex.  What a great facility and how amazing to be on the Showroom stage where fabulous entertainers like Jay Leno, Maroon 5 and Adam Lambert have performed.  As outgoing chorus champions, we performed a show package and helped behind the scenes with the contest.  Here are a couple of photos of me with some of my friends in our new costumes - just love all the metallic blues and silver!
Elaine, Lou & me
Connie and me
Becky, another chorus friend, knows a woman from her mom's chorus in Iowa with a special birthday coming up.  This sweet lady, Mary Ela, turns 106 years old on Monday!  And she's still singing in shows with her chorus!  I can't imagine making it to that age but, if I do, I hope I can still sing too!!  Becky let us know about a card shower for Mary Ela so I made this card last night.  I used Hero Arts fun clear set Wish Big and a great cling background Life of the Party Words.  I cut the numbers on the balloons from a friend's Cricut - don't ask which cartridge cuz I don't remember :)
I used fun papers from Basic Grey's PB&J 6x6 paper pad.
Wish Big 106 bday
Happy 106th, Mary Ela!  And thanks to you for stopping.  Have a great weekend!
