September 11th. Lots of thoughts come to my mind with the mention of that date. First, of course, is the destruction of the twin towers and the loss of many lives. When I think of that act I start thinking of how horrible people can be. There is evil beyond anything I could even dream of. But then, September 11th is the birthday of a wonderful friend of mine. She would do anything for you and is the exact opposite of the people responsible for 9/11. She is a person that inspires me. Happy birthday, Linda!
Today, I am scrapping one more page from the Kansas concert. I have a Cricut cartridge that is called “Paper Dolls – teen scene”. I remembered that one of the dolls had a guitar and I thought it would be cool to “Cri”cut a guitar for this layout. I found some cardstock that had small guitars on it. I cut a guitar out on that paper but then was sad to realize that it had a cut out on the guitar where the paper doll guy’s hand would be. 🙁 So…. a little more work but I used the cutout of the guitar and traced a guitar (filling in where the empty spot for the hand was). I cut it out by hand. Old school. 😉
I matted two of the photos together (overlapping them to cover unnecessary area). I attached them to a page of decorative cardstock from a Route 66 pad of paper. I then attached another photo (this one is of the huge banner displayed on the ship) to the top right side of the page. I used a “Our Carnival Cruise” border sticker across the top of the page (and across the photo). I also attached the hand cut guitar (covering part of one photo) to the layout.
Now for the tip:
*To put a title on the page (I put the word kansas) it helps to have a ruler and to place all the letters on the very top of the ruler. Space them just how you would like them on the layout. Then…put them on the paper (exactly where you want them) and press them on. Hold down on top of them with one hand and remove the ruler with the other.
I really like how the page turned out. It was a fun night for Brad and I. We hadn’t been to a concert in a VERY long time.
