Ella and Galia

Ella recently turned 18. I have made many cards for her over the years. Her mum tells me that they cannot celebrate a birthday in their family without one. This year mum requested a picture of her daughter at the school prom on the card.
I have shown Ella in the beautiful black dress she wore and with the school in the background. Ella went to the same school as my eldest son, so I was able to use one of my own photos from their end of school ceremony. The bunting matches the colours of the school logo and also the colours that the school was decorated in that the evening.
Galia's mum asked me to make her daughter a card with a pilates theme. I found a photo of her doing pilates on Facebook and copied the pose. I added a stability ball and big 24, on mum's request, to mark Galia's age.
"Love it!!!" mum messaged me. "It looks like Galia!"

It must be nice to see a young woman grow up from one card to the next. You do beautiful work, Lisa.

Haha, one of my best high school friends was named Ella. Lovely cards, Lisa, you are so skillful! Am a bit surprised that a 24 year old "needs" pilates. The ones I know are still so limber and have still such flexible muscles into their forties! But it's better to be active than to be a couch potato:) Many thanks for linking up these fun cards to All Seasons, Lisa- have a great week!
