I hope you had the time of your life

Oh my oh my . I used the lyrics to this song by Green Day to present the mood for the last 2 pages of Coltons prom layouts. I used pictures of his best friends and teachers. The final photo of Colton and his 2 buddies leaning on the veranda rail is amazing. I love it. They are so young and happy and such good friends. I feel wistful every time I view my son in this phase of his life. The end of a very successful high school era, it was time to say good bye to most of his buddies and enter a whole new world at university, yet in his heart I know he treasures these friends above all.

Of all the prom layouts, this one is the most `funky` in style. The rest were more formal and plain.
But I felt the song lyrics and subject matter of friends warranted a different style.

Once again
Blogger is posting my wide photos sideways :(
I still havent solved this problem.

Here are the lyrics to a great song. It was played during the power point slide show at the Grad ceremony.

Another turning point a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go
So make the best of this test and don't ask why
It's not a question but a lesson learned in time
It's something unpredictable but in the end it`s right
 I hope you've had the time of your life

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while
Its something unpredictable but in the end its right
I hope you  had the time of your life.
I used vellum for the lyrics, and some stamped pennants and soft lavender cardstock to complete the design.

sympathy cards

I am replenishing my collection of cards, with sympathy cards, thank you notes, and all the basics I will need this year. These 4 cards were made this afternoon using supplies on hand.  I never tire of this combination of shades, in particular, of soft greyish blues and smokey purple. Of note is the flocked lavender transparent paper. It seemed to soften the look of this gentle card.
