It’s Prom season around here and the boys high school had theirs the other weekend – during one of our storms.  Tyler went with one of his long time friends – Afton.  They were part of a group that met at one of the girl’s homes and then they all went to dinner together and then to prom.  Last night I decided to put together a quick My Digital Studio page with a few of the pictures of Tyler and Afton.

I used a photo template that was in My Digital Studio that happened to suit my photos – one vertical and two smaller horizontal photos.  I also have some group shots from everyone but those will be added to a second page.  I decided to use Basic Gray for the background since Tyler had the silver tux accessories.  Looking back I wish we had gotten silver ribbon on Afton’s corsage – oh well.  I added a mat in Basic Black around the photos and a drop shadow.

The digital stamp is Baroque Motifs – they are all in Basic Black but the ones in the background I changed to be 50% opacity which makes them look more gray.  There is also a background overlay that gives it a more distressed look – it was also changed to a lower opacity – I think I started with 50% and then went back and made it even lower – just play around until you get the effect that you want.  I added the journaling and move my stamps so they didn’t cover any of it.  Finally I added some pearls at the corners just because.

Did anyone watch American Idol last night?  I did while I worked in my craft room on Easter invitations for my family (I’ll share those later) and the final packaging of the March Ribbon shares (I’ll share that too).  I have no idea who to pick as going home – I really thought everyone had a good night.  Which is something that normally doesn’t happen when there are still 9 people in the competition.  Usually someone has an off night.  If I were picking my least favorite – I would say Haley – but I’d hate to see another girl go since there are only 3 left.  But I did say the boys were much stronger this year than the girls and so far that seems to be true.  Another guess for the bottom 3 might be Stephano (although I do think he probably sang his best yet).  Not sure about who else – I guess it could be any of them – who is the most/least popular may be the deciding factor because right now they all seem talented.  Just my thoughts – ignore them if you don’t care.

Back to spring cleaning – we are tackling Tyler’s room today – oh boy!  Maybe I should take before and after pictures of his…..he may not appreciate that.
