From my TN - A Day at the Theater

When was the last time you documented you?

For me, the answer to that question is a loooooong time ago. I'm just not a get-out-in-front-of-the-camera-type-girl.

But, Kinsley & I and a couple of our best girlfriends went to see "Mean Girls" a couple of weekends ago at the Nederlander Theatre in Chicago...

...and, I did get manage to get a couple of photos I can live I thought I should probably document them...seeing as how that doesn't happen very often (see the Storyline layout I created from brunch that day).

Here's the TN spread I made...

Using a traveler's notebook to document a "Broadway in Chicago" show

First, I covered the left-hand side with a full-size photo.

This is really my favorite way to create in a notebook. It takes the guesswork out of one whole entire side of your spread (yay!) and I love the look of the larger photos.

On the right-hand side, I added a tiny bit of typed journaling.

To do this in my notebook, I simply cut a piece of white cardstock down to size, typed up my date, place, etc. and then adhered that cardstock into my notebook.

I'm sure there are heavy duty typewriters that could probably handle the entire notebook, but my typewriter is not that typewriter.

I added some stamping & a piece of washi tape and this spread was done!

These pages came together really pretty quickly...and now there's proof that I really was there...(smile).

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look!
