ODU Homecoming - Marching Band

I had such a wonderful but exhausting weekend at ODU. Although I didn't spend much time with Charlotte, I did get to see her perform a lot. First in the parade, then at the football game (great half time show) then at the basketball game (lost to UAB) in the Pep Band. I finally got to see her after the game and we got together with some of her friends and parents for dinner. Here are some pics of the Marching Band and Charlotte (she plays the trumpet).

Seeing Charlotte perform

I am going to ODU and seeing my daughter Charlotte perform live for the first time. She plays 4 times tomorrow. It is homecoming/parents weekend. She will play in the Marching Band for the parade and the scrimmage football game, then she will play in the Pep Band for the Tailgate Pep Party and Homecoming Basketball game with UAB. I can't wait. Although I really won't spend much time with her (will have dinner with her after the game), I can't wait to see her perform. Since my husband has to work, I will video tape it and if I can figure out how to put it on UTUBE, I will. I am taking two HS seniors that are in band and are friends of Charlotte with me tomorrow. I will spend the night at the hotel and they will stay on campus. Both are interested in entering ODU next year and want to see the band. I CAN'T WAIT!

Kim and I worked all day yesterday doing a bunch of scrapbook pages for Nascar races we went to. The Kasey Kahne Fan Club is doing a scrapbook with all the races and events Kasey has participated in the past season and they will come from all over the county. We did races from Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, VA and from Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC. We had a good time together but was glad when we finally finished. It took all day. But I think they turned out well. I did not take good pics of them before I sent them off so I don't have a record of them. I was too anxious to get them off my hands. Oh well. Hope Kasey and his family enjoy it.

Deck the Halls

Here are 4 cards I came up with for a workshop in which the person wants to only use this set. She is a music teacher and wants a musical theme. I got ideas for two of the cards from Splitcoaststampers and the other two I came up with my own ideas. I will probably tweak them a bit before Sunday, but I thought I would throw them out there now.

Here are some more pics from Regionals

I could have made hundreds of cards to swap and would have been able to swap them all. I love the ones I got. I wish I had made more to swap. Here are some of the cards I received.
