Hi Everyone! Sheesh, I haven't posted for a few days because my allergies have been driving me crazy. I can't even tell if I have allergies or a cold. . .they feel the same to me. It's really hard to craft when everything feels fuzzy. Argggh!
Anyway. . .I feel better today so I decided to make something. On Wednesday, it was my son's Senior Awards night and he was recognized along with other students for their effort in community service. Wow, the kids are sooooooo impressive. Throughout my kid's high school years, we emphasized the importance of community service and you know, as much as they give back to the community, they tell me that they feel really good about doing what they do and that is what is important.
My son is pictured with my daughter's best friend who is graduating this year. My daughter is still a junior but her friend will be leaving for UC Berkely in the fall. Wow, she is quite an impressive girl. She received several awards on Wednesday. She complimented my daughter in that she encouraged my daughter to achieve academic excellence and my daughter complimented her by encouraging her to participate in community service. What a fabulous combination, don't you think?
Anyway, I decided to make a card and a small goody bag to give to my daughter's best friend. It'll be a little sad for my daughter because both her brother and her best friend will be in college while she will still be in high school. I hope she'll cope and find a friend that will be as good as her best friend (I don't want to say her name because well, I didn't obtain permission to post her picture).
I know the card and purse is a bit busy but teenagers like bright funky colors anyway.
Here is the card. . .it's sort of hodge-podge but I thought it was a fun combination of colors. The designer paper is a scrap piece that I used to inspire all the colors of my card.
The paper is by K&CO. The ribbon is by Basic Grey and flowers are by Dejaview. The stamped background is a stamp from Heidi Grace and the sentiment is by K&Co.
Here is the mini purse that I stuffed with candy. Just a small goody bad. Teens love chocolate so I thought it was appropriate to stuff it with candy. LOL!
Here is the template without all the marking so you can print it directly on to your designer paper or cardstock so you don't have to cut it out and trace it. It's much easier and faster to print it directly on to your cardstock.
