A Busy Life

No card to share today, it has been quiet on my blog this week. Although I love to play with paper sometimes life is busy and it definitely takes priority.  As high school wraps up for my son, now an adult I am taking in every single moment.

Ben has made the decision to attend Laurentian University this fall for Architecture.
This is what he has wanted to be since he was old enough to understand what it meant.
Laurentian Univeristy is in Sudbury, Ontario.
I could not be any more proud.

I though today I would share some photos of Ben's prom and a few photos of  artwork from his portfolio. The kid can create magic with just a pencil.






Nicole's dress was stunning.




These kids have been friends since they were young, so lovely to see them all dressed up like adults!







This one is getting framed.




Best buds





Just a pencil and pictures from the Internet

Wiz Kalifa



Jeremy Jones




A rugby collage that Ben composed from 9 photos




Thanks for looking.

Wow! Tracey, Ben is such a talented artist! I hope that when he gets settled into his more structured architecture world, that he keeps his "other" art alive as well. :-) He looked very handsome all dressed up for his prom.
