When I came up with this theme I knew exactly what I wanted to create for you!
This was the first year my oldest (who is a Senior) attended Homecoming and he went with his brother (the freshman) and their gorgeous dates.

This SVG file was perfect for showcasing these special photos.

I didn't have the perfect paper for my photo mats. I compromised by using Washi tape to create the second color on my double mat. I am so glad I did. I love it!

I used my stylus tool to round the flower petals and give them some dimension and added some bling in the centers. The pink touch of the flowers blends in perfectly with my son's tie and his date's dress.

I love that this is girly and formal but yet I still think it has a masculine touch to it too because of the black and grays and that awesome background paper. 

Hope you enjoyed my project and my handsome young men!!

 Up next is my sweet friend Pam.

Here's our line up in case you get lost.
