Continuing my little "tradition" of making a wedding card from the couple's invitation, I got to make one from Cousin T's pretty paper mail.
Here's her invitation:
And here's my little card :)
I just used the belly band on a Cuttlebugged sheet of pearly cardstock. Too simple, yeah?
For more fun I made buttons from the little faces.
I remember when I first noticed Cousin T. (She's not a blood-cousin, but I call her a cousin anyway. It started as a Sailor Moon bad-dubbing reference.) I was a freshman in highschool and only had a few friends from elementary school. Our interests had drifted apart, and though I wasn't alone, I felt alone (if that makes any sense). I had started my venture into otakuism, first with Pokemon and then with DBZ and Sailor Moon. And I noticed Cousin T in one of my classes - talking about the very things I had a budding new interest in.
I knew I had to be her friend. Not a normal way like "hey, nice to meet you", but in a much more passive creeper way. I drew Sailor Moon characters, shoved them in the front of my clear-view binder, and sat next to her, hoping that she'd notice and say something to me. Yeah, so smooth.
She did notice though - and she instantly invited me into her circle. She is the kindest, friendliest girl I have ever met, and I am really blessed to be her friend.
As for her new husband, Friend M - he was a grade younger than us in school, but I always called him a prodigy - he is a very smart guy, and also mature! We gave them a hard time when they first started dating (younger men in high school, unheard of!), but really they are a great match. True highschool sweethearts. Big congrats to the two of them!
How did you make friends in school? I still haven't gotten any less awkward at it! :P
