So Ready for the Weekend!

This has been one of those blah weeks... the weather has been up and down. From shorts early in the week to bundle up tight clothes today! We are winding down football season here and getting ready to start basketball season!
Our Varsity team will be moving to the playoffs in a couple weeks and of course we will travel to go and watch all that goodness... plus Madison will move to Varsity cheer for playoffs and will continue to march with the band at half time...

speaking of band...
Last week we competed in UIL Area Band contest to see who would go to state. The made the Area finals (24 bands... top 10 went to finals)... those top 10 bands again played their show and the top 4 from that would advance to state. We placed SECOND in finals and will advance to STATE this coming week! So we travel to San Antonio Sunday to support Madison and the Maverick band in the competition... we are the little band that could I swear... at a whopping 44 members big we are one of the smaller 2A bands.. but we are GOOD!!! Good luck Thundering Herd!!

Thought I'd share some cards that I've been working on lately...
Here are a coupld CPS cards for the past couple weeks...

and then a few more using the My Scrapbook Nook October Kit... I am STILL pulling stuff from this kit and have tons left!! :) gotta love that!
 this first card is for a "round and round" challenge over at the Nook... go here to come play along!

I'll be busy right up till we leave on Sunday... so I will check back in then and update everyone with the State results!! :)
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
