T is officially out of high school!! It was certainly a special night to watch 614 seniors walk across the stage. Graduation was held at the Eagle Stadium, and it was hot with over 3000 people enjoying the ceremony. We had a family dinner at Mimi's, T. choice, and the food was wonderful. She did get to spend some time with her favorite aunt and uncle and cousins before heading off to the big night. After the ceremony she left for the lock in party and came home about 6:30 this morning. This little bird is flapping her wings and I know her flight to college will be so exciting.
Congratulations Bean, we love you and are so proud of you!

This Little Indian

will graduate in 6 days. Graduation is next Friday night, finals are done, but school still continues. They have to go this week until Friday, then back to school next Monday and Tuesday, no one is happy about the Monday and Tuesday!
It is hard to believe that you will leave for college in a few months, always keep marching to your own drum!!

Yosef, My Cousin

I am so glad I don't have to pick favorites with my bugs relatives,it would be impossible to do. Marie located my little know cousin Yosef, in a far away country, Haifa, Israel, this last week. Evidently he knows some of the best people to visit, looking at the building behind him:)I really like his tailpipes and spoiler, plus the license plate is a nice accessory.Click on the pictures for a better view.
The past few weeks, we have been the big, big,bugs on the windshield, but Monday, we became the windshield. Turned on the wipers and cleaned off all the nasty bug juice and life is once again sunny!

Prom Night

After days of prep work, the long awaited night arrived and the big event went off with just a glitch. Her date, Duncan, picked her up and they met her friends, since grade school, for pictures. The prom was held at the Bob Bullock Museum in Austin, so they had quiet a drive. He got lost and parked 6 blocks away, they walked 6 blocks in the wrong direction and 6 blocks back to the parking garage. T. loved that walk in the heels:)Then they were in one lane and he realized he needed to turn so moved over to that lane,there was a police car behind them and pulled them over. The policeman thought they had been drinking and gave him a DUI test! He passed, of course, and so got of with a warning and then the policeman helped them find their way to the big event. T said the band was lame but she still had fun. T was voted the class clown and has the crown to prove it. The first picture is my "dances to her own drum" child on her way to a concert Friday night and then on Saturday transforms into this! The group picture is funny to me, she is the rebel dresser and thinker and her date has the shortest hair, go figure.

VW album for NSD

I didn't get to do much for NSD but I did have fun working on my VW family tree album.You can click on the picture for a larger image.Here is the vw family tree album
from the beginning.The first page is the day we brought the bug home. I used Paper Loft paper, the cute little MS car punch, coredination paper (love how that sands),and MR tree and bird. I covered the tree with green flocking...what a mess. Hard to get it covered and not worth the effort!
The "announcement" was cut from chipboard, raw on this side and covered on the back.Cut the flower out of grunge board that I ran through the CB embossing folder, and the peace sign is a QK die.
The second page of the insert, MR bird,Branch and clear date thingy. Ran the bird through the CB embossing and inked. The next is an acrylic insert, with a QK sun, some acrylic hearts and the MAMBI peace bling. Threw in a few felt flowers and a little stamping. The back of the acrylic page is just a mirror of the front, and the last page was a little "flower power". At least the WIP has made some progress.
