Father of the Year Layout

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Good afternoon! Let's start today's post with a little confession: I love Jurassic Park. You may remember a post discussing my trip to see the giant T-Rex from the movie in Time Square last summer. Therefore, I was ridiculously excited for the release of the movie in 3D for its 20th anniversary. My dad, being the awesome guy that he is, took me and my roommate to see it. Poor guy had to take a nap before the movie so he'd stay awake that late! haha I couldn't help but document the entertaining evening. 

I used the Clippings Collection by BasicGrey for this layout. All of the papers matched the colors in my picture of the movie theatre perfectly. Because the page focused on my dad and his desire to support my nerdy enjoyments, I wanted the page to have a more masculine feel.

In addition to BasicGrey papers and embellishments, I added a few things from Ormolu, Chic Tags, and this adorable paper clip from K&Co.

I found this ticket sticker from Hampton Art and wanted to incorporate it into the project. Since three of us went, I cut matching letters from white cardstock with the Silhouette Cameo and layered them onto the page. I added more stars like the one printed on the ticket by adhering a few gold star sequins that were included in a recent Studio Calico Project Life Kit. 

Thanks for checking out today's project! Do you ever document your favorite movies or tv shows?
