Prom LO and Video!

Good morning! I am going to apologize in advance for posting more prom stuff........because I just can't help myself! Friday is Cortney's prom and I am sure I will have more pics to share of her next week! On top of that my girl is turning Sweet 16 next week! These years with her have been such a mixed bag of tricks and I have certainly had my share of tears and heartaches.....and maybe that is why when these sweet little tidbits find their way into my life.....I embrace them so! So if you are utterly sick of hearing and seeing about Cort's prom......it's not too late to turn away! ; )

Last week I shared with you the pics of how Cort was asked to prom.....with a gigantic poster and a dozen roses! So sweet......that I had to scrap them right away! I used bits and pieces from my stash. A bit of stamping, glimmer misting.....and glitter. Always, always, glitter! ; )
I love popping up certain elements with dimensional foam squares.....I love the added depth!

A left over butterfly cut from my Cricut.....and glittered buttons.

And last but not least, Cort's teacher videoed "Jimbo" asking Cort to prom. He has a language device to ask her......Cort has one, but didn't wait to find the correct button for her response.....you will hear her response verbally as clear as day! ; ) I warn you.....the video is about 3 minutes long.......

Thank you for letting me share a bit of sweetness with you..........
