Going Way Back!

Good Evening Everyone, I am going way back today....On Splitcoast Stampers limited supply challenge LSC229 was to choose your colors either your High School Colors or your wedding colors. I had a small wedding at my brother in-law's house which was very beautiful, but I didn't have any colors. My cake of course had my favorite color (purple) but no bridesmaids or anything!! So I chose my High School colors. Dark Blue, Gray, and White. Can you guess what my mascot was??? An Eagle!!! hehe...We were the Osbourne Eagles from Manassas Virginia. I haven't thought about high school in so long until today. This was a really fun card to make and brought back some Osbourne Eagle memories. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is enjoying their FRIDAY night!!!
Here's the recipe
