My daughter's winning & Tilda Thank You card

Hello to you all and thank you for visiting my blog.

Today, before I posted my card images, I would like to dedicate this little space to my daughter's teacher "Ms. Holmes" by saying a big THANK YOU to her. Last week, my daughter came home with an information sheet about a story writing contest. She said to me that Ms. Holmes gave her and her friend Molly the sheet and suggested to them that they should enter. This story contest was supported by a local bookstore and quite a few sponsors. Molly and my daughter Jasmine both wrote a story about two girls using Harry Potter spells against You Know Who's (Voldemort's) daughter. Yesterday, my husband received a call from the bookstore telling us that Jasmine and Molly won a prize and we would have to be there at the store on Sunday at 5pm (which is today) for the presentation of her prize. My husband and I decided not to tell Jasmine, as we wanted her to be more surprise, we told her that the bookstore called and told us all the contestents were to be there for the announcement of the winners, but not sure who would be the winners until then.

Today, she found out that Molly and her were the 2nd prize winners, they were presented the prize bags by local author Robin Stevenson. They each got a bag of goodies. The most exciting goodie she got from the goodie bag was a book called "Spelling B and the missing magic". The cover stated "uncorrected proof - not for sale - paperback publication July 2009". Was she ever excited to be able to read a book like that!

Here are some of the pictures of today's event:

Robin presenting the prizes for Jasmine & Molly. We are proud of you two.

She is so excited about her winning.

I've made a "Thank you" card for Ms. Holmes to thank her for her encouragement to the girls. Here are the pics for the cards and detail info of these cards.
