Peace Blog Hop

It's been a busy week as I anm participating in 2 blog hops today.  If you are here for the Mother's Day Blog Hop Click here.

Now for the Peace Blog Hop.  If you arrived from Nikki you are in the right place.  If you stumbled on to this by happy accident and want to check out the full hop please visit Adri who was the fabulous organizer. 

I can't tell you how excited I was to participate in this one.  My son is 17 and graduating from High School in a couple of weeks (oh, just uttering the words makes me feel old).  Yes, this info is releventant to the hop.  He was my inspiration.  This young man has been the biggest Beatles fan for several years now.  We thought it might be a phase but it's definitely not.  I must be honest, I have no idea where this love of their music came from.  Certainly not my husband or myself.  The Beatles were even before my time.  I never listened to their music growing up.  My parents liked country so that's what we were stuck listening to on the 8 tracks tapes in the conversion van, I know there are some of you out there chuckling cause you listened to 8 tracks in a conversion van too.  What a trip down memory lane, but I digress!

I took his Senior pictures and this was one where he was completely goofing off. 

Please note the image on his t-shirt is John Lennon.  I think the only t-shirts he owns that don't have something Beatles related on them are his white undershirts. 

I used the Groovy Times cart for the Peace sign and words.  The Peace sign was cut at 9" and the words "peace" and "love" were cut at 2.5".  Cardstock is miscellaneous as always because I don't keep track of it and some of it is scraps.  I also doodled a bit on teh words.

I do have some blog candy but it will be a suprise for the winner.  No worries, it's brand new, still in packaging.  To be eligible for the drawing on Monday evening please leave a comment.  I'd love for you to be a follower if you enjoy my blog but it's not required.

Next stop on the hop is Lynda.

Here is the entire line up just in case you lose your way.  You will definitely want to visit all of these wonderfully talented ladies!

I love the fun layout. My son would have had a fit if l published it. Good sport.

Adri said...

Let me tell you.... your son is one SUPER COOL guy! I am young as well (27 y.o) and I am a HUGE FAN of The Beatles! I have all their music , traveled to the yearly Beatles conventions, met Pete Best, saw Ringo Starr in concert... etc! LOVE <3!

And as a high school teacher, I love when I come across young students that love The Beatles as much as I do! It gives me an opportunity to teach them about my favorite band as well as the opportunity to learn from them some things I might not know!

Love your project and congrats to your son on his graduation!

Thanks again for being a part of this blog hop!
