:) The VERY Happiest News! :)





Ohhhh!  I have been so excited this past week and nearly bursting to keep quiet with the happiest news!  Our dd14 was born for the stage and has a voice straight from the heavens.  This summer, she's in a month long musical theater camp and tried out for a part in the play, hoping for "a" part but not anything huge.  The talent there is competitive and she isn't.   But when she sang, the directors pulled her aside and asked her to try out for the lead.  With 4 others also trying out, we told her to just do her best and that's all He asks of us.  She was one of 3 of the girls that were given a call back - then they gave her the news after waiting over a very long weekend!  She got the LEAD!!  The play is 1.5 hours and she's going to be singing and performing .. we are so proud!  She's SOOO excited (now!)  She felt so bad for the others, she nearly didn't except the part - my sweet babe! 

Last week, she had the opportunity to visit a taping of the X-Factor - she sat in the audience and said it was NOT what you see on tv!  She always told us she'd try out for American Idol one day, and after seeing that, said "um, maybe not!"  She said you need to have a TON of self confidence to be on that show and she was crying along with nearly every contestant because most everyone was given a "no".  I can't wait to find out what day it airs - they kept panning the camera to her/her friends direction and telling them to clap and cheer and scream :)~  Too funny!  She said she could not believe she was sitting "this close to Simon and Paula!"

Inside view before we signed it for her :)
Thank you for letting me share - I'm so happy for her!  I made her this card to celebrate her acceptance.  She just loved it and said I was very talented, lol.  I beg to differ - SHE is the one with all the talent!  All I did was put marker to paper and paper to glue :)   Speaking of cards, I made this one with one of my fave color combos - red, hot pink and green!  Using up the last of my Real Red, I paired it with this yummalicious Lime Twist paper that I just found on sale - it's delish!!  I thought this image was fun and the sentiment was perfect!
Blessings to you ~ Thanks bunches for stopping by!

   Big hugs!
