A few prom pages

I finished up a few (okay, ten) prom pages over the weekend. Last year, I made eight prom pages and I had promised myself that this year, I would try to cut back. Obviously, that didn't work well! Truth is, I could have made 20 pages, but I consolidated several photos into three Picasa collages. That helped a bit!

As any scrapbooker knows, it is a real treat to work with beautiful photos! Many of these photos were taken by our daughter's boyfriend's dad. He uses the Kodak metallic finish, which has a stunning effect in real life. Of course, I had to mix his gorgeous pictures with my "pretty good" pictures and a few "barely acceptable" ones from Facebook. But I don't mind. Collectively, they tell the story of this big event!

Crazed Scrapbooking Mom went along to the girls' hair appointments to grab a few "before" and "after" pictures. Of course, we also documented the nail and make-up transformations...all part of the story!

We had so many beautiful pictures from our group photo shoot that it took six pages to display them all. The girls looked gorgeous and their dresses fit perfectly with the prom theme, "An Evening in Paris".

I love the layouts. Bailey looks so beautiful in her dress.

Beautiful job! I especially love the last layout with the flowers & flourishes. And you daughter's dress is gorgeous!

I've heard about the metallic photo paper and would love to see some pics printed on it in real life. I might just have to order some myself!

Great pages! Love those colors and very different from most prom pages. TFS!
