summer sundays ab page


for this altered book project, the topic was "dining rituals" and i was totally stumped on this one. my family had dining rituals, but i didn't really feel they were special enough or decorative enough to put in the book. then i remember eating in the car at 1106 and that inspired this page.

i used red and white plaid scrapbook paper for the background because i thought that was most like a picnic blanket/tablecloth. i found a picture of the type of car we had at that time and then made a special trip to 1106 to take pictures of the building. obviously it hasn't changed any in the last 30+ years!

the picture of the building, the signs, the menu, and the logo were all special parts of this business. under the flap on the lower left of the page, i wrote about my experiences at the 1106 and the family memories that places brings up.

since nothing needed sealed, i just used mod podge for the paper gluing and it works wonderfully. the tag is attached to the page w/ mod podge on the back flap. the string tie on the tag is just for show and does not tie the tag to the page.

Jill, this is great. You've captured the atmosphere so well - you background pattern wa a stroke of genius. It makes me nostalgious for the place, although I've never been there
