The entire show is sponsored by the Alamo Kiwanis Club which donates all of the proceeds to children's charities. The show is recognized as the longest regularly-playing outdoor musical production in the US. Kiwanis has sponsored this show as a fundraiser since 1958. Needless to say the show was spectacular, the few pictures I took don't even do it justice. I highly recommend checking out their website for some wonderful videos and music .
Here are my dinky snapshots:
It's hard to appreciate the uniqueness of the theater in this picture. The stage is actually across the river from where the audience sits.
Here's a close up picture of one of the dancers.
Thanks for stopping by. For more information about visiting San Antonio, go to this website.

Card stock is Ruby Red, Choc. Chip and Very Vanilla.
To say my new job is keeping me busy would be an understatement! I am loving it but it is really testing my time management skills. Before I used to stay up late stamping, working on my blog and tinkering in my stamp room, now.... I have to go to sleep at a decent hour because I 'have to' get up in the morning.
I've had a few readers ask how my new job is going. Well, it is going well. I am loving what I am doing but I have found working for city government is VERY different than corporate America.
The schoolhouse is from a retired SU set called Golden Rule Days, I am not sure when it retired but the date on the box was 1999. When I saw this set (on ebay), I just had to have it for the school house, it is practically identical to the school logo. The Muchas Gracias is a stamp I got a long time ago, not sure where.
The box holds 7 nugget chocolates and I spelled out GRACIAS on the chocolates using Avery labels. The Golden Rule Days stamp set included small images of notebook paper, a pencil, school bus and a school days sentiment. I stamped the notebook paper, pencil and schoolhouse all over the box with Ballet Blue ink for a tone on tone effect. I made seven of these sets for the teachers and the staff at her school. Her actual teachers got a little extra, a red & khaki canvas tote bag.
On the inside I printed a little wallet size picture of Micaela and an little note from us. The teachers loved them!
I used Basic Black, Kraft and Chocolate Chip card stock. The star paper is retired from the Outlaw collection last year. The Father's Day block is stamped in Black Craft Ink and embossed with clear powder.
