Mixed Media Monday and Crazy Amigo Challenges - Together



With the beginning of school just around the corner and my high school reunion looming, I've been thinking quite a bit about "togetherness"....the togetherness that comes from being born in the same year, living in the same neighbourhood and attending the same school. Do certain classmates stand out in your mind? Perhaps they're the ones who were your friends or perhaps they're those who tormented you? The "brainer"? The "jock"? We tended to travel in a pack right from kindergarten through to the end of grade eight then off to high school where we mingled with other packs from other schools. Then high school was over and we all went our separate ways to become what we are today. I'm not quite sure I'll be attending that reunion but it sure stirred up some memories of school togetherness. These round robin journal pages are my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge. as well as the Crazy Amigo challenge with the same theme.

These journal pages are wonderful, I love all the detail in the backgrounds. I just attended my 40th (I can't believe I'm that old!) Highschool Reunion on Saturday and it was great; I got to see all of the people I really wanted to see that I had hung out with through highschool. The men were the hardest to recognize, but all of the guys that I had gone to elementary school with I recognized right away. We were always in groups at school. Thanks Heather!

Fantastic..I love how some are wearing crowns..I like the blue hue's as well..this is really grand. I've been thinking alot of my high school day's as well. I did enjoy school and took alot of art classes my sr year..so I've been thinking of those and wondering if they still do any art.
I haven't been to any of my reunions, but I'm still curious.
great artwork!
