MOD MOD MOD My brother is having a graduation party on July 6th. I love pictures and I am putting together a picture board. I wanted this to be my project for the party. I want a ton of pictures and will make multiple boards if I am aloud to. I want this to be a kick butt board like no other. Something unique that I can totally be proud of. I typed and printed his first, middle and last name, #24 his football number, an acrostic poem using his name and forever a Wolverine our mascot. How can I incorporate this with my pictures? And what type of poster board should I use? I know that a lot of people put other things out like awards or yearbooks. What could I put on the table with the board. I also found his 8th grade video. I want to leave it playing on my laptop for the party. I can't figure out how to play it on a loop. Do you know any programs that let you do this? Thanks!



Hey girl,

An extra thick posterboard (like one that's foam-like) will be way sturdier than a thin paer board. You could decorate the table with certificates, awards or souveneirs your brother has from high school (like pins, certificates, trophies, a football, school-spirit pom poms, etc) and framed photos that you don't want to glue onto the picture board. You could leave space on the board for guests to write messages to your brother in colored sharpies (in school colors, of course) so that people will come up to take a look at your hard work and even contribute a little message. I'm not sure about the video, though. Ask your friends for help too!

Sounds like you're getting really creative and it'll look great. Good luck!

Mod Mod Mod How about a blue sparkly tank top, my white shawl, not sure about the shorts and my red wedges? Thanks!


Hey girlie, that sounds good! The shawl still might be a little much depending on what the weather is like where you live. But if you really love it then go for it!

Mod Mod Mod I am trying to put together a fourth of July outfit. I have an idea but I think it might be a little much for going to the parade and having a cook out. The dress that I got for Homecoming this past school year is dark blue, I have red wedges and a white sparkly shawl to wear over it. What do you think? Is it too much and do you think it sounds good together? Thanks soo much!


Hey girlie, it does sound like it would look good. But it's probably too fancy for what you're doing. Try jean or white shorts and a top with some red, white or blue in it. You can still wear your red wedges. Those would be a great touch!

Under "Do be aware of sickness symptoms" it says "If you start showing signs of shock, get help ASAP." I actually get that pretty often, and I have no clue why. I was actually feeling like that this morning. I have tried searching what it may be and asked my mom if it was anything bad, but she didn't know anything about it. It's like this shocking feeling I get every few seconds and I get really weak and dizzy. I have been ignoring it.. Is it bad? What should I do about it?


Hey girlie, it doesn't sound good. Make sure you're drinking lots of water and staying hydrated. That could be part of your problem. If it keeps happening, see a doctor.
