2007: Miramar Air Show
As most boys that are 9 year old will agree – guns and soldiers are one of my son’s favorite things – so going to the Miramar Air Show was a highlight of the month for my son. We arrived very early so that we could set up our chairs in the front row of the open field section and got rained on most of the day! However we had a blast, and felt the blasts from several of the explosions! We had opportunity to walk through planes and other military vehicles as well as watch some spectacular flying. I think if we were to go again I would take earplugs as many of the airplanes were extremely loud.
I used a military background paper for this spread and then used my Cricut machine to cut out the letters on the right hand side of the page. When they were cut out I realized that I had a perfect silhouette banner remaining which I used on the left hand page. I used a sponge brush to dab gold and copper paint on to it to make it look camouflaged. On the left hand side you will see 5 copper brads – I punched the holes for these using by Crop-A-Dile Big Bite Punch.
I also used a new tool on the corners of the pictures on this page. You will have to click on the image above to get a larger view of this. The corner cutter also has an embossing part to it that embossed the four bars into the corner of every picture. I like this as it reminds us of the stripes that the military are awarded for rank and service.
