See what happens when you move and find old memorabilia that was just waiting to be scrapped......LOL
Yes, that's me pushing DH into the water. LOL
These are up close pics of the "tickets", each ticket had information on passengers of the Titanic. That's why I had to make one of them a "flip" option...
This is all I had, a boarding photo and my door key to our room. LOL
First, what wonderful pages. I really like them. Sometimes you've gotta work with what you have. Was that a backdrop that you could stand in front of and take a picture? We went to a different exhibit and there was nowhere to take a picture for my son except outside the Museum itself, since you couldn't take pictures inside.
And I'm adding this (not scrapbooking related) for you since you're crazy about the Titanic (since I finally have someone I can relate it to):
My son is obsessed with the Titanic too. (He's 5). We went to the Milwaukee Museum when we went "home" (to my parents) for a baby shower over Thanksgiving. So amazing.
The cool part is that we bought our son the Titanic book that is essentially a one page pop-up. (We got it for a fraction of the cost as half priced books). Anyways, in there there is a mock-up of the paper reporting the Titanic's sinking and gives a partial list of the rich people who lived. The boarding ticket my son had, was one of those listed in the paper. (Even more heart wrenching, my husband had the ticket of the father of the one my son had. The son lived. The father didn't. That choked my husband up SO much and he kept emphatically saying "And that's how it SHOULD be.")
Between my 3 year old and I, we ended up with 3 girl tickets. 2 lived and 1 died. (We ended up with all 1st class tickets somehow.) The one who died intrigued me and I want to research her more. She was part of a LARGE traveling group and everyone else lived, including the men. (I looked it up on their lists.) It just makes you wonder what happened.
Have you seen Ghost of the Abyss? They had an IMAX show of that that we went to on the same day. My son never moved once during the entire film. We now own the DVD too.
Oh, and I hear you on what a tragedy. My 3 year old was so intrigued by the exhibit at first. But she's a VERY emotional feeling person. We got to the room where they had the iceburg and she played with the ice, etc. But she would NOT cross into the next room (the room that had the dead/survivor list and the artifacts that showed evidence of people who had died). No one had said anything to her, but she started bawling and sat in the middle of the floor saying "I'm done. Don't go there. It's bad. We can't go anymore. Let's go home." I had to pick her up and run through the room to get out. Talk about an emotional kick in the ***. How did a 3 year old know what layed in the next room? To this day, she loves seeing the pictures of the Titanic in it's glory, and she'll play "titanic sinking" with her brother, but she will NOT watch the documentaries showing the ship at the bottom of the ocean, etc.
Wow Michelle! That was so great to read! It is very intriguing that even your 3 year old understood something like that. If Ghost of the Abyss was by James Cameron, yes I saw it. It's also disturbing to know that eventually there won't be anything left of the Titanic once the ocean eats it completely away. Anyways, I have a book called 882 1/2 Amazing Answers To Your Questions About The Titanic (Scholastic Book) that I can mail to you for your son. I've read through all of it, but would love to share it with someone else, if you don't already have it. Just PM me your address. Thanks again for sharing that with me.
And it wasn't a backdrop, if you could see the pic in person, you can tell where they put your image into the picture (computer graphics).
Great work! TFS

Wow! What a neat story to capture about the Titanic exhibit. I'm jealous of your cruises! I could use a little fun and sun -- although DH would never go on one (he's afraid of oceans and sharks).
Both are great pages! Yay for being able to scrap some fun memories!
Mish -- those are neat stories about your kids and the Titanic!

Okay so you are all going to laugh at me cause I can't even look at the 1st page! ZI am terrified of ships! Not to go on them just to see them. The back part of the ship I am fine with but it's that sharp pointy frount that gets me. MAN just typing that freaks me out. I saw the page and scrolled down as fast as I could. I really like the second one and as for the first one I am sure it is great! LOL
Those are both great! I'm fascinated with the story of the Titanic as well (especially since one of my ancestors was set to be on it, but got arrested and sent to jail instead (for robbing a Co-op - yep, I come from great blood lol)! Lucky for him, being sent to jail, I guess!). The same one finally made it to Canada and had 21 kids with my great-grandmother - all while still married in the UK. I digress ...
I love the second one too - I wish we could go on a cruise!
oh, those are both great!!! so neat about the Titanic exhibit - love how you did a layout for it. and cool cruise page!
