This is a MINI ALBUM that was done as a design team project for THE CRAFTY SCRAPPER in Waxahachie, Texas. It is on display in the store.
Where has the time gone in the past ten years? So many serious, life changing events have come our way since the terrible tragedies of September 11, 2011. Our country and the world hardly seem to be the same, and I guess everyone on this planet who was more than eight years old on that day can remember where they were and what they were doing when the horrific events unfolded. I was teaching a class of second graders in Arlington, Texas and the words from Alan Jackson's song will ever reverberate in my mind, “Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day? Teaching a class full of innocent children…” Within only three days after September 11, 2001, my sweet daughter was crowned Homecoming Queen of her high school. It seems a very insignificant event compared to the thousands of lives lost or forever changed. Students, teachers and parents were still reeling from the horror of that day, yet somehow, life had to go on. So, that sweet girl held her head high and helped everyone at Maverick Stadium remember that LIFE DOES GO ON. The culmination of Elizabeth's senior year in high school is the subject of this sweet mini album. Although I have done larger album pages to chronicle the highlights of her high school days, this 6”X6” mini album is by far, my favorite scrapbooking project that I have created to honor her achievements. My baby girl is now twenty-seven and is a college graduate living on her own with the responsibilities of an adult woman. I still scrapbook her everyday experiences and important events, and always will, but until she marries and has children of her own, there will not be a subject as near and dear to my heart as the honors Liz achieved in high school. It was a difficult time in all of our lives, but LIFE STILL GOES ON…..AND HOW SWEET IT IS!
