This afternoon, I went to see my niece, Maddy perform at her school talent show and gosh... I was a proud aunt! I mean, this girl is smart, super cute, and she has such powerful voice!! She's been on stage for several opera show and I always thought it's so unique to have a tween who loves opera. I mean she knows many of the songs by heart and recently she started to like pop songs. :)

For the talent show, she sang Christina Aguliera's song  "Beautiful", and her parents, her grandparents, ad me, we all just sat there in awe listening to the power of her voice. And it's funny, that she has perform at many opera, yet for this school talent show, she was so nervous,  you'd think she never been on stage. Literally, for the audition she cried saying she didn't want to go up there because she felt she's not ready.

But, she has great group of friends who totally cheer her on and basically threatened to drag her on stage. LOL. I'm so proud of her for overcoming her fear. I could so learn from this girl. Know, what else that make my niece unique? She loves birds and just based one their look, she could name what kind of bird it is. She done it since she was 5-6 years old.

I am gushing about my niece, don't I? Sigh... hubby and I truly adore her. And, I made this card that I thought reflect how I felt about her perfectly. The color is inspired by Paper Crafts color challenge # 4.
