You Rock--take 2!

Here is another one (the 4th) that I came up with. The little strip of rainbow paper are the leftover from believe in your dreams. See? NEVER thrown the good left over away ;) 
you rock
By adding a strip of glitter, this card's got more pizzazz! I love this little drum image and paper-pieced the image with a sliver-misted paper (hard to tell in the photo).
Have you seen the challenge going on in my blog (details here)? Do check it out, if you miss seeing the post.
Lastly, with my kids' permission, I am sharing a few of my son David's Prom photos. David and his prom date Lily--darling couple! He did the promposal. You can see it here
 in case you miss seeing it:)
 Lily pinned the boutonniere (baby roses) for David.
Stephanie served as the official photographer at the pre-prom party. She did a great job!
 A super cute photo of him and his two best childhood friends.....boy, how has he grown in 3 years!
David and sister (aka the photographer) Stephanie
Love their sweet smiles!

Ahhh!! So excited to see pictures!! David and his prom date do make a great couple! Also, I love the fact that this picture with the two friends is a repeat picture. Please please keep this going every three years. That would be awesome.
