Fabric of Life

We are very excited in our house today because the kids got the results from last Sunday's audition for the Tournament of Roses Honor Band. My daughter Tyler got in playing clarinet. This will be her third year in the honor band and the last year she can be in it since it is only open to Pasadena City College band members and high school kids who make it in by audition and she'll be away at college somewhere at this time next year.

The really big news is for my son. He marched in the band last year playing trumpet. This year he audition well enough to be asked to be a part of the Herald Trumpets. This is a huge honor for him! The Herald Trumpets are the ones who march in front of the Rose Queen's float in the parade on New Years Day playing those long trumpets! He'll be one of 7 Herald Trumpets. 60 kids tried out. He hasn't quit smiling since he opened the envelope last night! I am thrilled to death for him! So when you watch the parade on New Years'll sorta know one of those kids playing in front of the Queens float!

Now on to why you stopped by...

My card today is one I made over the weekend. I am not a "vintagy girl" but I just had to have this last stamp set that was released in the Rummage Bin line. I just love how all the images and sentiments work so well together!
