Ryan Reed turned 18 on April 3, and family and friends found a unique way to commemorate the occasion.

It took over 4,200 Post-It notes and four hours to cover Reedís car, but Tracie Reed (mom), her friend Shannon Mieseler, and Jan Harris (grandmother)

painstakingly placed each one, covering every inch of window, sheet metal, rubber and plastic in the multi-colored work Advertisement

Friends John Shurance and Kersten had also filled the interior of the car with 600 plastic balls and 14 dozen balloons which fell out onto the parking lot when Reed opened his driverís side door.

It was a "labor of love" for Reedís 18th birthday. Reed has been attending Linfield Christian School for the past 13 years, since kindergarten.
