not meant to see


I CASEd this layout from BH&G Scrapbooks Etc. June Issue's Made in Minutes.  It was made in minutes though minutes scattered over about 4 days :-)  When you are really busy, it is especially nice to sneak in a little crafting time.

The layout is about our efforts to see a space shuttle launch - one of my hubby's wishes.  After snagging very hard to get tickets, I thought the tough part was over.  Unfortunately, this particularly launch was delayed 8 times.  For 6 tries, we just kept postponing our trip.  On the 7th, we and NASA were sure it was going to launch only to have it scrubbed just a few hours before lift off.  We finally just had to come home.  They launched about 4 days later.   So I guess it was something we weren't meant to see.

Project Notes:
  • With no DSP in patriotic colors, I colorblocked the layout with papers from two of SU!'s 6x6 packs (highly recommended as a hostess option) and one tone on tone paper from another paper pack in Brilliant Blue. 
  • I love undressed chipboard like this curved arrow so I can paint or ink in whatever color needed.  The dark gray color was just black and white paints mixed.
Ingredients:  DSP:  Real Red, Sahara Sand, Jersey Shore by SU!
Font:  Arial Narrow
