A VERY Exciting Day!!!

Good morning all...by the time you read this, Coach Jess will have gotten up at 5:45am on a quiet Sunday morning and taken 16 girls to the big event they've worked so hard for...our 2008 Pom Competition!!! Yep, today's the day! Amidst the screaming, cheering, hairspray, and tights, there are 16 girls who have worked so hard for this moment and I can't even tell you how proud I am of them!

To honor their hard work and committment to my squad, they will be showered w/ lots of goodies, tshirts and trophies over the next few days. However, on Friday night we had our Dress Rehearsal and to kick off the weekend's festivities, I made 16 Good Luck cards for my awesome girlies!
This paper reminded me of Poms. Isn't that funny? As for the card, I had hardly any time, so they're nothing fancy, and it was hard to find stuff to use w/ our colors, which are navy, white and silver. To the girls, they were everything, though, and that's all that matters! You should have seen the looks on their faces when they saw I had a Pommie stamp! Kudos to Stamping Bella for making this awesome stamp! (LOL a funny sidenote...since my girls are 8 I decided that a two-piece uniform wasn't exactly age appropriate so I made it a one piece ha ha ha!)

I can't wait. I signed up for this because I, too was a Pom in HS and I wanted to be there for my girl. Somewhere in the process though, I have inherited a family of 15 extra girls and their awesome, supportive parents and I am just flooded w/ emotion! Wish us luck! GO GIRLS!!!! POMS KICK! Thanks for reading and have a great day!!! Hugs,
