Last summer, right before school started, we decided that we wanted to do something fun as a family. We chose to drive over to Fort Worth to visit the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, and since Dallas wanted to take a friend, we asked our neighbors and their granddaughter, Hailey to go with us. We did so much, and had a great time doing everything. We made paper airplanes in the "How Do Planes Fly" special exhibit, we learned about the Solar System in the Planetarium, we played with all the hand-on exhibits, toured the Cattle Raisers Museum, and so much more. By far, Dallas' favorite part was the dinosaur exhibit and the dino dig, where he and Hailey got to become archeologist and did to find dinosaur bones.
To make this layout, I cut out all the pieces using my cricut (Create A Critter, Disney Mickey Font, and Elegant Edges). Then I inked around all the edges using Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, and then started putting it all together. I love how the 3 different pattern papers work so well together, and how the fuzzy ribbon works to anchor the layout. The two little dinosaurs are as cute as can be. I finished it off by printing my journaling on a transparent sheet and tucking and attaching it under the pictures so it would stay down and no one would see the adhesive. Time to start planning this year's pre-school field trip.
