My Journey to the Movies

One of the things that hubby and I love to do is to go to the movies.
And through the years we've gone to a lot of movies...

I came a video on YouTube, a journal for her friend who is a huge movie buff and kept her
tickets from years ago. And this inspired me to make this mini album...

Let me show you the start of "My Journey to the Movies"...



I got the kit from A Piece of Craft.



The inside cover....still a work in progress ....



I added seam binding to keep it together...over time it's going to get really big...




Here's my first page highlighting the movie we saw last weekend, Warrior Horse.



If you're a pet lover, I think this movie will touch your heart....



I went on the internet to find a short description of the movie and then printed out some tiny pictures and added it to a piece of cardstock.




This kit is really fun..lots of vintage cutouts and also plenty of room to add your own.



I started going through and added some of my stuff  and it started to take on a life of it's own



The kit also came with some full pages to make chapters...very easy project, even for a beginner



Most of the pages are already weathered looking but I added glimmer mist to each page for some sparkle...





The pages are just fun...and I can't wait to start saving mementos of this year to add to it.




And then the back cover, I added a pocket for more tags...

This project will have to sit and wait now.
I've got a couple birthdays in the family that I need to make a couple of things for.

Wishing you a great Thursday!

Beautiful journal, and I love the whole idea of how you'll be using it!! I love the movies too, and my head races with individual scrapbook tributes I want to do eventually. I don't think I'll ever get them all done, I love so many of them. War Horse looked like a great story, and I'm just waiting for it to come to the less expensive theaters closer to me... Have a great weekend! ~tina

Your journal is gorgeous and I love the idea of a keepsake for the movies you've seen. I always have my ticket stubs but they just end up in a pile. This is a wonderful way to treasure them.
