Challenge #1 - Gail

After agonizing over this layout for hours, I finally got it done! I'm not really that happy with it, but it does meet the requirements specified. Only one of the photos on the page is mine; the other two are stock photos from the museum's website. The 6th Floor Museum really didn't fit my stereotype of a museum. It was really, really cool. I remember the day President Kennedy was shot very clearly. I was 8 years old and in 3rd grade. They made the announcement at school that our President had been shot. Shortly after the announcement they dismissed school early. I didn't really understand the impact of our President getting shot, but I knew getting out of school early was a BIG DEAL!!

Anyway...here's my layout...such as it is! Have a great day and I'll see you on Thursday when we get our next challenge. Hopefully, it'll be something easier to scrap!

Looks like a pretty cool layout to me Gail. Don't understand why you're not happy with it.

Now see! You were all stressed about this first challenge being about museums and you did a GREAT job! I've lived less than 20 miles from this museum since 1979 and have never been. Isn't that awful? It's always been one of those things I was going to do one afternoon. Anyway, even though it wasn't about your favorite subject (chocolate) you at least managed to work in some chocolate colored papers. :o) Great page Gail!
