We Won in Hobart!

Great news readers.

When my Chorus, A Cappella West, went and competed in Hobart last month we took away the #1 position.

There were 23 Choruses competing this year. We were the largest.  We had 82 on stage. Below is our posed picture which was taken after we had sung our two competition songs. I am on the second to back row, roughly middle left.

This year is the first year that a cup was awarded. Our Chorus' name will be the first one on it. It is quite gorgeous.

Here I am (on the right) holding it with my roommate and friend Andrea. We are dressed in our silver and black outfits that we wore in the parade of Champions.  It was nice to have a costume change.

I also wore the outfit to our after party, which we call the Afterglow.  The theme was royal wedding as it was the same day as Harry and Meghan's wedding (I watched it whilst getting ready). I just added some more bling to my outfit and some gloves and I was ready to party.

We are all excited now as we have qualified to compete at International again next year. It will be held in September in New Orleans.  We can't wait.

21st birthday card

My son turns 21 on 5 June. We've hosted a party for him yesterday.  This is the card I have made for him.

This is a photo of us taken at his party. The theme was College. He did Uni exchange last year at Ohio State. His Uni, Curtin, is a sister School.

This is also my design team example for Archiscraps this month.
Here is the insp pic:

You need to use two or more triangles.  I used 5, in the form of a banner.
Hope you can join in. I look forward to seeing what you make.

Birthday card

It's June already. Winter has finally arrived.

This post is for my design team example for Unstampabelles.

Here is the criteria:

#80: June - Flowers and more Flowers

Twist - Bling it up

Don't forget - no stamps!

Here is my example.

I chose just 3 colours to make a bold statement.  I've distressed the two layers of patterned paper to add texture. The bling used are Kaisercraft blue rhinestones and two of the flowers are glittery.

Hope you can join us for this challenge I know you will love and find easy.
