Hello everyone! I have had a very nice Thursday, just spent the day shopping with a wonderful friend! :) It's also my hubby and I's 10 year anniversary (of the day we met)! I can't believe it's been a decade! Anywho, the Let's Face it Friday Challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps is to create something that represents the year you graduated from high school.... This is so fun! I graduated in 2000 (my dad was so excited I was going to be in the first graduating class in the new millenium), and so the first thing I did was Google things that happened that year.... It was so fun looking back at some of the things that were happening 11 years ago: President Bush was elected (remember the "hanging chads" and all of that chaos with the ballots?); N'Sync, Christina Aguilera, and Britney Spears were the big music stars; the first season of Survivor came on (I've never watched that show); etc., etc., etc..... I also got my driver's license that year (I don't know why I waited until I was 18)! :) BUT, the one thing that kept sticking out in my mind was the big hype about Y2K and the computers crashing at midnight on 1/1/2000. In my senior pictures I even posed with a big Y2K sign (it's so funny)! So here is what I came up with....
A2 sized card
George and Basic Shapes- computer: squares cut at 2.06" & 1", oval cut at 1.71"
Everyday Paper Dolls- girl & clothes cut at 4.52", hair cut at 4.29"
Cuttlebug- seeing spots
Peachy Keen Stamps- Everyday Character Face Assortment
Y2K- OCR A Extended font at size 72
Stickles- star dust
Mini button brad
This card was very simple to make (and very silly), and I was smiling the entire time I was making it! Hope this puts a smile on your face too... Enjoy reminiscing! :)
