Elizabeth's Senior Prom



Hello there, I'm popping in quickly to share a card for this week's Retro Sketch.  I'll be giving this to my co-worker who is celebrating his 5th anniversary in a couple of weeks.  I love this sketch...and had a lot of ideas for it so I'm sure I'll be back using it again soon.

Before I go though, I wanted to pop in and share pictures of my amazing nice, Elizabeth.  Saturday was her senior prom and if I do say so myself, I think she looked absolutely stunning!  Her friend, Taylor, did her hair and make up and it was perfect.  I took a few close ups of her hair so that you can see it. In the top right...I love the eyes she is making.  She's had that particular look since she was a very little girl.

 Here are a few more shots of her dress and she and her boyfriend, Allen. He looked very handsome!

I love this picture of my mum and Elizabeth...they were cracking up about how much taller Elizabeth was than her since she was wearing heals. Their smiles make my heart happy!  I feel so blessed to have so many of our family members close by so that we can share these occasions!
