Many of you who follow my blog know that Cortney graduated from 8th grade. But you probably also know that she doesn't go to a typical school......and doesn't go to a brand new school because she has moved on to high school. Instead she goes to a different wing of the school. Her teacher for the past 3 years has loved her like no other teacher I've ever known. She has shown Cortney the greatest respect and has accepted her just the way she is. She has allowed her room to grow and blossom and for that I am extremely thankful. This teacher, Miss Amber created videos for the 3 students who graduated this year. Each one was different....each one was personal. She loved these kids like they were her own. Cortney's video included the song, American Honey by Lady Antebellum. The song is about growing up, changing, moving on. My girl is changing, blossoming, coming into her own. I attribute a lot of those changes to Miss Amber. And now I have a new song to cry to every time it comes on! ; )
I used Noel Mignon's kit from last year called, "Love Story." I loved the rich reds and earth tones in this kit. I cut the circles, accordion circles, and title from my Cricut machine. The circles were cut from the George & Basic Shapes cartridge, the Accordion circles were from All Occasion Cake's cartridge, and the Title was cut using the Storybook cartridge. I pleated the half circles to create these dimensional pieces.
I used a JustRite stamp for the jar of honey. It is from the Preserved Borders & Centers set. I colored it using my Copic markers. The word honey was stamped with a Papertrey script set.
