How I made my January page II

I have had this set of Basic Grey papers, Eerie, for a long time now and never found the right photograpghs to scrap with them. Until now!  We spent a few days at Disneyland Paris in November 2011 and our favourite ride is the Tower of Terror. The story goes that in 1939 an electrical storm hits the hotel and plunges guests and staff to their death. Everything remained in place as the rest of the guests and staff fled. We join a service elevator and are dropped over 13 storeys, leaving our seats as we plummet down and back up again. What a ride!!! Anyhow, back to the layout. I used the off-white web paper, cut it in half and stuck it to the top of 2 pieces of bazzill. The orange paper has rows of bats so I cut around their wings and stuck them halfway down. The base was created with the purple web page. Instead of using two large photographs on this layout, I found the script used to introduce the ride and printed it onto another of the patterned papers which looked aged. The key was taken from the photo frame which came with the official photographs, mad I know but when you see Robert's face, just had to be done!
This side concludes the narrative welcoming you back safely along with the official photographs and one that Robert took from the top of the ride overlooking the parks.
The semi circle was cut with a creative memories circle and blade, the letters are from the paper pack. The numbers were added to the inner ring on a different piece of the paper pack to represent the service elevator dial along with an arrow cut freehand. I added some "screw-head" brads either side.
This was our sketch for this month, the original layout by Stacey Hansen who's work can be found here.
