Our Spanish teacher, Lorraine, is retiring at the end of this year and I was asked to make her an album. We got staff members to write a little note to her and she had a lot of photos from teaching for me to use, so that made it a lot of fun to create. I found this stand at Michael's, and it seemed a perfect fit to the fiesta papers I was using. The little sombrero is an added touch, which I got at a crop.
I mixed sayings and photos. On the right page, I went around all the photos I cut out and collaged with a white pen and added the dots...makes it pop a little.
I laughed over some of the student photos from her classes over the years...sure looks like they are having fun. I wanted to get as many of the kids into her album as possible, so cut them out and collaged them together.
I know Lorraine is already enjoying this memento of her teaching career, since she has been taking it with her to show to people. Enjoy your "Jubilee" Lorraine!
Jubilee=Retirement...I kind of like that way of looking at it!
