I need to make up an ad for my dd who is a Senior this year for the yearbook. Any ideas, quotes, or??? If you've done one I'd love to see it. Sadly, I'm drawing a blank and it is due on Friday.

Thanks in advance!

what are you advertising? The only ads we had in our yearbook were from local businesses to help support the school.

They call it an ad but it is actually a ad in which you are sending a message to your child...a wish of luck, quote, or ??? And you include photo(s) of your child. It is only for the seniors and is included in a special section in the yearbook. The ad can either be 1/4 of page up to a full page. I am thinking of a 1/2 page ad. I wasn't really going to do it at first but then I looked at last year's yearbook and it seems that almost every senior had an ad from their parents and I don't want her to be left out. HELP!!!

Lucky you if you get to actually design it yourself. We had 3 design options, and had to leave it up to the yearbook staff to actually arrange the pictures. We could include up to a certain number of pictures based on our design choice and ad size. So now I just have to hope they do a good job.

If you're doing a half page, I would probably choose 2-3 photos to go down each side, with a larger photo in the middle. Words can be in their own block underneath the large photo, or on top of the large photo.

On DS's quarter page we had a favorite picture from when
he was a toddler next to a senior picture with the
following: Always keep your sense of humor, embrace
challenges with enthusiasm and treat each day as a gift.
We love you, Mom and Dad.

Soooo many parents quoted the words from the song I Hope
You Dance.

In DD's preschool yearbook last year, I did an excerpt from Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. When I graduated from highschool, our valedictorian quoted from that book in her speech and it's always made me a little sentimental. I can type out the parts that I used if you're interested.

I used this quote for DD's Senior Yearbook ad:


The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.
Henry David Thoreau

We are using this one, a bit paraphrased:

"What I wanted most for my daughter was that she be able to soar confidently in her own sky, whatever that may be." ~ Helen Claes

We changed "I" to "we" and "my" to "our" and included several photos of her hobbies/activities. She's very outdoorsy and musical so those were the photos we included.

I am actually doing the same .. one for my daughter and one for a friend .. his mother passed away last year and she made him promise her he'd graduate H.S. .. he is this year .. although its been tough .. no family support .. but I wanted to put something in there for him like, "You have made your mother proud" or something like that .. any suggestions?!

I love that sky quote! I mite use that one for my daughter, fits her perfectly!

Mine was a bunch of words with advice and love sprinkled in - it was based on Everything I learned in Kindergarten. I know there are posters like it, and I did my own adaptation, but I don't have it here with me. It was things like: always buy lemonade from kids on the street corner....take time to play in the rain...put things back where you found them....say I'm sorry....take a nap every afternoon...don't take things that aren't yours....say I love you...put things back where you found them....say please....say thank you....make snow angels after the first snowfall....always tip the waitress....call your mom


The snow angels and the call your mom were two that had special meaning to us. I'm sure you can come up with your own....she loved it because others thought it was neat and even though it had special meaning between the two of us, others didn't understand the mushy/feelings between us part that some of the personal things were.

Wow, I am not a mushy person, but that quote teared me up. Thanks for sharing it.

I love the sky quote too! I think I will use it but change a few words. Any other suggestions?

My parents used a pic of me on my first day of kindergarten and this quote:

Here is the jpg image of the yearbook ad I used for my daughter's senior year. It was a quarter page ad. We did something similar with my son, but I don't have the image loaded on my laptop.

Hope this helps:

This is one I made for DD



In the light area I wrote how proud I was of her and that I felt she was going to do great things, that kind of stuff. I thought I had DS's but I'll have to go look for it.
