On Broadway

This month at From Screen 2 Scrap! the challenge is to use the movie poster from A Tree Grows in Brooklyn as your inspiration. As an additional challenge you can add trees, leaves, and a black and white photo.
All of those elements came together for me easily. Brooklyn made me think of our trip to NYC to see Spamalot with Amy and Tito 7 years ago. One of the funniest quotes was about shrubbery. And when I dug out my pictures I remembered that I had put in a roll of black and white film for that trip. Remember film?

All together:

Left page (photos by Amy except the one of the theatre. I looked it up on the internet and the photo I found even had Spamalot on the marquee!)
Right page (photos by me - I used the arrows to cover glare on the cardboard cutouts)
I had to make the shrubbery by taking apart 3 trees from Jolees.
The comedy/tragedy masks came from a barrette I used to wear all the time in junior high and high school. I popped them off and threw the barrette away a long time ago. Glad I saved them!
Great challenge to get those pictures scrapped!

P.S. I can't wait to read the book!

Always fabulous from you Capt! Clever to take the trees apart, and use this bit of Monty Python from the creative! Thanks for playing again at FS2S!

Monty Python & the Holy Grail is one of my favourite movies, & the 'Knights that go Neep' asking for a shrubbery one of my favourite clips, so I really 'got' this LO!! I'd love to see it on-stage as Spamalot!! Great work repurposing the trees & the barrette adornments! Love it all!! :D
