2015: St Louis Science Center

2015: St Louis Science Center
As part of our Thanksgiving vacation we went to the St Louis Science Center.  I misread the time that they opened so we ended up getting there an hour early!  The St Louis Science Center is a massive complex that will engage your family all day long.  It is free to enter, but there is always a special exhibit that you can pay more to enter, and tickets to the Omnimax theater as well.    We were able to see the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! travelling exhibit which was pretty fun to interact with.

I chose “sciency” background papers and borders for this project – diamond stamp, graph paper, and geometric shapes.   I put the program on the left hand page on top of the plastic page protector so that it could be opened for the viewer to read.  On the right hand page I made a pocket out of triangles for the brochures to go in, so that they could be taken out to read.  I did this by using a long strip of adhesive tabs along the bottom and the side of the triangle to assure that the brochures did not fall through.   As is my usual habit, the ticket to the event was added to the page to remind the viewer of the date that we had this amazing experience.

2007: Climbing Wall and Science Center

2007: Climbing Wall and Science Center

This spread is another example of combing two different events together in one spread.

On the left hand side are pictures of my son climbing a portable climbing wall at the Ocean Beach Farmers Market.  I used real black string on the page to highlight the ropes being used to belay my son.  I used my Crop-A-Dile Big Bite Punch to punch holes into the page and pictures to run the string through.

The titling on both pages are pre-cut letter stickers that I bought at Michaels.

The right hand page showcases our time at the San Diego Reuben H Fleet Science Center.  The atomic particle that you see in the middle of the four photographs  was cut using my Cricut machine.
