Blue and Silver!!!

Here is another card I will be doing with my class on the 25th of May. I like the colours blue and silver together. I think it is elegant looking.

The base of this card is Night of Navy card stock by Stampin' Up! The next layer is Brushed Silver, the next is Night of Navy which was embossed using the snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder. The tree from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set is stamped and embossed with silver on Shimmery White card stock and layered on silver and navy paper. An eyelet was added in each corner, and the sentiment was stamped in silver craft ink in the bottom right hand corner.

Woodstock's annual Victoria Day parade took place yesterday. I think Joe and I have watched every one of these parades since we have been together. The first year it went right by the apartment that we lived in and Joe tried to convince me that he had that much "pull" in Woodstock and knew that many people that they changed the route of the parade to have it go by our house....of course I didn't believe him...even though pretty much every single person who was dressed up as a character in the parade came over and shook our hands and said it actually did seem possible!! The fact that he knows so many people has always been a cool thing for our kids when they go and watch the parades; whether it be the Victoria Day parade or the Santa Claus parade. Most of the floats have someone on them that Joe knows or some of the characters walking the parade route know Joe and they would make a point of coming over and shaking hands with the kids when they were little or yelling at us and waving from up on the float. That always made going to the parade fun. This year.....well..the kids had friends over last night and were up were still in bed when Joe and I went to watch the parade this year. I guess they will have to catch it on the local cable station!

Here are a few pictures from the parade.

This one shows Janna Polzin. She is a local resident who competed in the How Do You Solve a Problem like Maria television show that had people competing to be the person who would portray Maria in the theatre production of The Sound of Music in Toronto. I believe she was the runner up and therefore got to be an understudy. Many people from Woodstock went to see Janna perform the dates she was playing Maria. She was chosen as the Parade Marshall this year.

This picture shows 3 of the members of the WDDS (Woodstock & District Developmental Services) This organization supports developmentally delayed individuals find employment and live actively in the community. The fella on the end with the ball hat waving, is Roberto, he used to be our neighbour before we bought this house. The fella on the opposite end is Scott and has been very active in our local baseball community. Both of these guys have participated in the Special Olympics as well.

This picture shows a cow! For those of you who are not aware, Woodstock is the Dairy Capital of Canada. There are many of these cows that show up at different events in Oxford County.

This picture shows one of the band leaders - I think it was a Shriner's Band. Check out that knife!

This picture is one of the Shriner vehicles. It has the Ghostbusters symbol on the side of the vehicle and it pumps out the song all along the parade route.

This pictures shows some of the tiny cars that the Shriner's drive. It looks like Lightning MacQueen from the movie Cars.

Hope you enjoyed this little sneak peek of our parade.

Chow for now,
