A Star is Born

Well, he was born almost 17 years ago, technically. Jacob had the lead role in the Spring Musical at his high school. They performed Bye, Bye Birdie four times in three days. I was able to attend all three evening shows and loved every minute of it. Jacob played Albert Peterson. He was cute and funny and has a terrific singing voice. This photo shows Jacob in the brown suit in the center. He is telling (singing) about Conrad Birdie arriving soon.
Jacob will even get an opportunity to reprise his role at another high school's show. A nearby high school happens to be doing the same musical but, unfortunately, their student who was to do the role of Albert, has become ill. Jacob feels badly for the young man who has to step down, but is excited to help out and do two more shows. This does mean more rehearsals for the last two weeks of school and driving about 25 miles each way to get there. I can't wait to see him sing again! I'm such a proud mama!!

Friendship Frame

I suppose it's about time that I share an art project. I made this frame for my dear friend, Beckie. We got to see each other in January. It's such a bummer that we live on opposite coasts. I searched through dozens of quotes about friendship before I found this one. I printed it onto vellum card stock. Then I layered that onto white, then chocolate chip. I attached these layers with silver brads and attached to some patterned paper I had in my scrap pile. I also added some layered prima flowers with a cool silver, flower brad from the newest Hodgepodge Hardware kit. I found the frame at Michael's. I hope that Beckie liked it. I sent it for her birthday. I also made the card to match. Take a look!

The Prom

So, my first baby went to the Prom recently. I can't believe that he is old enough for this!! Hubby and I were remembering going to our respective proms back in high school. How did we get here??? So here is the silly pose of Jacob and his sweet date, Jennifer. Aren't they just adorable? They look fabulous in their formal wear. They had a fun time and Jacob is looking forward to going again next year.
