The Memory Nest "MIM" #45 Hard Rock Fun!

It is time for another SKETCH Challenge over at 
The Memory Nest Blog!!

Crystal created a SUPER FUN Sketch for you 
to play along with!!  Take a look!

I started looking through my photos and found 2 from way back in 2008!!  I can't believe they were taken 7 years ago!!!  I've always loved the textured look of the "waves" in these shots and really wanted to FINALLY use these photos!  I liked the concept of the sketch - having one bigger center photo, with 2 smaller ones on the sides.  I wasn't sure if I could make the sketch work with just 2 photos - but I think I was able to pull it off by using a journaling card, washi tape and layered puffy stickers for the smaller one on the right - what do you think?

This photo was taken of my husband, my oldest son and me while visiting Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach, SC.  (My youngest son didn't want to be in the picture - I guess he thought he was too cool - but, looking at this picture - I think WE are the "COOL" ones! LOL!)

This was in August of 2008.  The Park was brand new. It had just opened in April of that year.  It had different sections with different music in each. 

There was a great 150 ft tall rollercoaster that blasted Led Zepplin music, another ride was a little British Mini car-coaster that played hits of the 1980s.  "Life in the Fast Lane" was a mine train roller coaster that played the Eagles song while riding it. Slippery When Wet was a suspended roller coaster in the "Born in the USA" section. Nights in White Satin was a ride in the dark - Seriously a FUN Park - we were so sad that it closed in September of that same year!!  We are so lucky we got to spend a very fun / but HOT day there!


I double matted my base page with a piece of orange pattern paper, and solid aqua cardstock. I then tore a strip of orange and aqua print paper and added it along the bottom. I sprayed the base papers with Glimmer Mist, to mimic the splatters on the sketch.

The large photo was purchased from the Park.  The smaller one was take by my son Jake.  I love using the same or similar photos in the same layout. - and I LOVE that Washi tape - don't you?

Here you can see the layered puffy stickers and part of the "HOT"  flying guitar sticker embellie - I just had to add it!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you jump right in and give this sketch a try!  I can't wait to see what you will do with it!
