Field Trips, part 4

Here are our scrapbook pages from the day we spent in Seattle.  

The Space Needle turned 50 this year- same as me, so I thought it would be cool to visit. Interestingly enough, my folks, who were living in Winnipeg at the time, were planning to take a trip to the 1962 World's Fair in Seattle but the mom was pregnant with me and the doctor said she couldn't go.




The Chihuly glass exhibit was amazing.  I took so many pictures- it was hard to choose just a few to scrapbook!  

Yeah- that middle shape is like an upside-down Christmas tree.

The outside displays were equally stunning.
I just hope it doesn't hail in Seattle- I can't imagine the glass would hold up under that...


The view from above- downtown Seattle, the roof of the Experience Music Project Museum, the buildings of  the Seattle Center, and kiddo appreciating it all.

Mostly looking west over Puget Sound and parts of the Seattle Center.
That plastic Space Needle came full of Sprite.
Now it's being used as a coin bank at home.

Such good memories!

  1. I love your scrapbook pages about your day in Seattle! Are they digital? They are beautiful. And your photos are so amazing. I love how you photographed the glass exhibit and the page on downtown Seattle is awesome. Thanks for sharing! And thank you so much for your kind thoughts and well wishes for us during and after Hurricane Sandy.

    1. Hi Sharon- thanks! Yes, I use a digital format to do most of my layouts these days. I still do a few paper/glue pages here and there, but for the most part, it's digital. I didn't embellish these pages much because the photos speak for themselves. Sometimes, I miss the depth and dimension of paper pages, but I don't miss the cost- these things are only $1.99 to print as 12 x 12. (Unless they are on sale for $.99!)
