The Museum Of Science And Industry

Sometimes I just have a hard time scrapping certain events! Take this trip to the museum in 2009 for example...Bad lighting, poor quality pictures = lack of mojo.  Sketch Support is my go to sketch site when I'm having this problem! Allison Davis always has fantastic sketches to spark my mojo and get the job done. After I printed these pics I decided they weren't so bad after all. The smaller size tends to mask imperfections.

Be back later next year :)

I'm in love with this Basic Grey "Sweet Threads" paper!

I didn't have an "O" left in my stash, so I created one out of a "D".

I substituted a 3"x6" photo for 2- 3"x3" photos on the right page because they were sitting too far apart to crop.

Used the backs from the foam squares for the sub windows! recycling :)

Vintage buttons.

Used my Cricut to cut the submarine & jet with the "Stand and Salute" cartridge and the rooster with "From My Kitchen". An acrylic stamp by Glitz was used to create the background for the embellishment clusters.

The public library hosted the bus trip to see the Harry Potter exhibit, but we had plenty of time to check out the other exhibits because the tickets were time sensitive. It was well worth the wait! I was just as geeked as the kids to see Hagrid's giant chair, the Acromantula, and other props. We were amazed at how small Harry's clothes were next to Ron & Hermione's :) The only disappointing thing was that they didn't allow photographs :(

Check another layout off the "To Do" list! Hope you had a good weekend! I'm finally getting over the cold my lovely germ ridden children gave me last week. Had to explain to my patients all weekend that I was no longer contagious, just sounded (insert sniffle & cough) like I was ;}

AWESOME page. I really need to study your use of clusters because you do it so incredibly well.

I know what you mean Beth! I have a lot of pictures/events that fall in that category. But you did an awesome job with this one and I love all of the cute embellies you used!

Fabulous layout Beth! I love your paper choices (can never go wrong with Basic Grey!) and your stitched grid. You would never know that you had trouble scrapping these pictures from the looks of this wonderful layout!

Do you print your photos when you are ready to scrap them? It's a GREAT layout, really. I know exactly what you mean by "poor quality pictures" :) I have stacks and stacks of so-called "poor quality pictures" that are unscrapped, but really, they are FINE photos and worthy of being scrapped! love your page, totally inpirational.
