Another Year of Piano

Today is the last day of piano lessons before my kids get the summer break. As I quickly routed around my studio this morning I knew I needed a specific card. Here is one that came together in minutes....
I stamped the aged music scrapblock (CHF) in latte ink from Ranger. I decided that I wanted to stamp just a portion of the large "piano girl" image (SEP from Cornish Heritage Farms). Stamp the sentiments that I had close at reach and then sprayed it with my YGo3 mister filled with green perfect pearls and blender. You should see the pretty shimmer on this card. I decided to deck out the envelope a little too!
My daughter is entering grade 9 piano this year so she will be doing theory over the summer. I love to listen to her "practice". She has been taking piano with our teacher since she was 5 and has a lot of passion when it comes to music. The photo is her receiving an award for the "Adjudicator's Choice in a Canadian Class" at our local piano festival. A little "proud mom" moment.
A little story about the trophy.....my son also takes piano and he had the trophy adorning the mantle last year (this year he chose to write a piano exam instead of doing the festival). The trophies get returned after one year so.....this year my daughter decided it was her turn.....no....they aren't competitive......
My daughter now holds the "year of trophy reign"....we will see what next year brings!

For the benefit of my family and friends here is a short video of Marie at the piano....if you are a papercrafting visitor feel free to skip over this:


The sketch girls are taking a break tomorrow so I am going to enjoy a little long weekend, enjoying father's day with our family....so I will see you next week! Enjoy your weekend!

I hope your daughter continues to grow in her music. She played beautifully.
