2013: Indiana Pacers Game
Once a year the Indiana Pacers have a special deal for Exchange Students and their families. For $20 we got a ticket to the game, a t-shirt, a hot dog, soda, and bag of chips. We couldn’t pass this great deal up so we made our way to the Bankers Life Field house.
The game was a lot of fun, especially since the Pacers won, and so was creating this page. I always enjoy incorporating ephemera into my pages and this one has some good ones. Since I had so much ephemera I used plain background papers – blue and yellow – Pacer colors. You will notice banners running down the side of each of the pages. These are plastic “thunder sticks” that we picked up off the ground after the game. I deflated them and then cut them to fit on the pages.
I also included the game ticket, the program, the schedule, and a pendant that I purchased at the souvenir shop. Since the program was so heavy I did not mount it to the page or the plastic protector. I just placed it in its spot on the page behind the plastic protector sheet. The viewer can pull it out if they wish. It does slide around a bit, but I didn’t want the weight of it to tear it off of the page.
The picture of the basketball is the massive basketball that is in the Pacer store at the entrance to the Field house. I cut it using a pair of sharp pointed scissors.
