Europe Vacation: Colosseum, Rome, Italy
This page brings back some vacation nightmare memories, that now I can laugh at. I purchased a ticket to see the inside of the Colosseum and after taking three pictures my camera broke :(. I about threw up because we were not even half way through the European tour. So after about 20 minutes of looking around the Colosseum I left and was able to find a photography store where I bought a new camera for the rest of the trip. I went back to the Colosseum and they wouldn’t let me back in because I had left which was disappointing. Also, when I got back to the States I realized that I couldn’t get a battery for the camera as it was a European battery.
I used black frames on these pages and used a corner cutter to create the frames. If you want to see what the cut looks like without a picture in it, look at the Title block (sorry for the spelling error!) and you can see the pattern that is cut. The photo corner then slips in between the cuts and is held in place by the frame – no need to stick the photo to the page. I also turned the Colosseum entrance ticket into a plastic covered sticker using a Xyron Sticker Maker to protect the page from the acid that we found present in the ticket – see Acid Test Pen.
