50th Anniversary: The Tomb Escape Room
While we were on our vacation in Pigeon Forge I was able to find discounted tickets on Groupon.com to The Tomb Escape Room. My son and I love escape rooms, and we were told that this was more like an interactive adventure than an escape room – which I found to be true. We had a guide during the whole time, and I think that it was easier for younger children to grasp what needed to be done in order to be able to move forward through the maze.
For this spread I chose an “Escape” paper that was made for escape rooms – I thought that the tan color scheme on this page was perfect for the sands of Egypt. I matched that paper on the right hand side with a tan/turqouise pattern back ground paper. The main feature on the left hand page is the large pyramid which holds the tickets from the event behind some pillars. I cut both of these elements out using my Cricut Machine, and a 12×24 mat so that it could be big enough for the spread. I outlined the items with a black marker so that they would stand out more, and attached the pyramid to the outside of the plastic page protector as I made it in a way so that it could open!
The right hand page contains the ephemera for this trip, including the brochure, a page with my mothers name in hieroglyophics, and pull out journal block made to look like the Sphinx – which I made on my Cricut machine. My mother journalled on this later. I made a pocket at the bottom of the page to hold these items and cut the scroll on my Cricut machine to match the patterns on the left hand page.
Second Album: For my album I created a duplicate page for the left hand side – my pyramid opens up to reveal the exact same interior pictures. I made my left hand page a little differently as I did not get a print out with my name on it. So with my brochure I attached it to the outside of the plastic page protector so that it can be opened, since I did not create a pocket on this page.
