Record label....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!  It has been the craziest 2 weeks ever!
I've been working like a mad woman! This weekend was Pioneer Days here in Utah!
And we had tons of people coming to town visiting their families and such...
So work was exhausting but AWESOME! :o)
Any who....
My son Juston is in a band!  And guess what??? I've never
heard them play! EVER! I know that sounds terrible to say....
But I work a lot and most of the time when they play I'm at work
so I never get to see them or hear them... :o(
Well.... Friday was a talent contest for Pioneer Days and they
were to pick the top 3 to play for Saturday's Pioneer Days in the park and
each of the winners receive a cash prize....
Juston's band was picked in the top 3! YAAAY! When he came home
to tell me what happened.. I was sooo excited for him!
He got to play on his Birthday! How cool is that! :o)
And guess what else??? I actually got to see them PLAY! YAY for me!
I had to work Saturday of course... But I asked my mom to
watch the store so I could watch him for just a little bit...
Here are some pictures of them on stage:
Ryan, Gunner, Remi, Juston

My Baby!!! :o)

The boys playing their hearts out!
They were able to play for an hour and play any songs
they wanted! The boys had a blast! I got to watch them
for about a 1/2 hour.... They really sounded amazing!
So glad I got to finally see him play!
Now... with the past 2 weeks being crazy busy
for me... I had to find time to make my son
a Birthday card! I wanted it to represent HIM
and what he is doing now! Soooo
here's what I came up with!
I found the Record and the Bass with Amp
at the Silhouette Store!
I welded the Record together
the Digital Designer Paper is from Echo park
"All about Boy"
Baker's twine to make the plug from the bass to the amp.
And the bow
I wrote "18th Birthday Records" and on the inside
I wrote "I hope your 18th Birthday Rocks like no other"
I used a white gel pen and glossy accents in some spots...
He liked my card a lot.... Which is what I was hoping for!
Anyway.... Thanks so much for stopping by and listening
to me ramble on!
