This week Scrapping the Music challenges us to make a scrapbook page inspired by the Gilligan's Island theme song. I spent about half an hour digging out pictures of me in my Gilligan Hat. That's what I call it. My students' faces are covered to protect identities.
I was about to read my old, used copy of The Hound of the Baskervilles that I've had forever and discovered pages 243+ were missing. I always like to read the end of a story, even if it's bad, so Friday I went to Borders and got a new copy for only $3.46! Sunday Corey and I watched Bored to Death and the intro inspired me for the 3rd time.
I recalled that ScrapMojo's challenge is to use a book page on your layout. This morning Captain snuggled up to share the hound story with me and I got the idea to cut apart my old copy of the book and make this page:
I traced the hound from a Basic Grey template onto a book page. I was going to trace the tree from book pages too, but it was way too intricate so I used the Basic Grey tree and punched leaves out from the book instead. The cool thing is that I tore out the telling of the tale of the Hound, randomly punched out the leaves, and these are the words on them:
Also if you pull out A Word to the Reader you can see my journaling:
Does anyone want some vintage pages of The Hound of the Baskervilles?
