MIA...

Happy Friday!

Sorry that I've been a little MIA this week. My kids High School band is hosting a field competition on November 22nd. And I am in charge of it. We have 35 bands coming to compete. It's a huge deal. We order in porta potties, extra lights, security. We have 250 parent and student volunteers and 5-7000 attendees. It's budgeted to raise at least $15, 000 for the music program. All of the sudden October 22nd hit and I realized that I only had a month before the event so I have been busy the last couple of days with alot of the e mail/paperwork/follow up stuff. Feeling a little more under control now.

Tomorrow we'll be gone at a competition all day. This is a fun one. The kids compete in the AM (20 bands). Then the top 8 bands compete again in the evening for "championships". So, we either get home at 5 pm or we get home at midnight. I am hoping for midnight!!!

But enough chatting....

I haven't had a chance to stamp this week but lucky for you I still have a few cards that I haven't had a chance to share with you. And to make up for being MIA I'll share a few of them today!

This little chicken looks as good as ever, revamped with the new straw background. I also love the TK save a date card. Beautiful Kristine!
