The Prom

I can't believe my baby girl is 18 and graduating high school this year!! Where has the time gone?? Kara's friend, Sarah, actually talked her into going to the prom. I think this is the first dance that Kara has gone to since jr. high. Sarah also arranged for Kara to go to the local beauty school with her and have her hair, nails and makeup done.
The next picture was taken after she got back home so her hair is falling down but it shows the shawl that she and I painted the night before. (See this post does have something fiber related in it!) Thursday night when I was shortening the straps to the dress, I realized she didn't have anything to wear over her sholders if she got cold. Friday, after work and before I went to the Fiber Divas meeting, I ran around town trying to find something. All I could find was a white shawl (scarf) that didn't really go with the dress. After I got back from the Fiber Divas meeting, Kara and I pulled out my fabric paints and painted the shawl. Talk about waiting till the last minute!!

It really went great with her dress. As soon as these pictures were taken, Kara got out of the clothes, took out all the bobby pins, took off the make-up and washed her hair. She's a jeans and t-shirt girl and doesn't wear make-up normally so she couldn't wait to get out of everything. She did look beautiful though!!
Kara said that her favorite part of the whole day was the looks she got. People would walk right by her and not know who she was. Then they'd turn around with a suprised look on their face, when they realized it was Kara.
