You remember I told you I had to paint some baffles with 3 sayings for the band. Remember, Reflect and Respond. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what parents will do for their "kids in the band." They are an unwavering breed of people who know the value of having something to strive for on the road to greatness. They prove this every year. They feed them, cloth them, and follow the path to help each kid realize the dream of what can be accomplished by reaching for the stars.
And this year they did just that. The Morton HS Marching Band went to Indy and proved they were up there with the best of them. They placed 3rd in the Bands of America Grand Nationals competition for 2A bands. 90 bands participated and we could not be prouder of them.
Here's one of Jeff, my kid, the director, giving what I'm sure was a pep talk to go out and do the best they can....make everyone proud. Thanks to everyone who pushed these young people to their limits and congratulations to an outstanding group of young professionals. It shows they've got the right answer to leading in the right direction.
AND on a lighter note. Yes, I know the print is upside down. This thing was extremely hard to photograph without glare and some sense of color. So I give you this. It's of course, Tim's Foliage flower with Alcohol Ink on the petals. Then I slid the flower into the Memo Pin...not easy, but doable. The punched clock face was put into the Memo pin and Glossy Accents were added to everything.
It will work it's way into the little project I've been working of for a few days. I've come down with a cold, but seem to be much better today.
So don't forget to come to the last class of the Graphic 45 ladies and Desk Organizer this weekend at Scrapadoodle in Peoria, Illinois. It has lots of fun techniques and pieces that will make a rewarding afternoon of crafting. You are guaranteed to have a great time making this. And they make wonderful Christmas gifts that are easy to duplicate once you have the instructions.
So call and register for class.........hope to see you there.
