2013 Design Team Challenge # 7: Bahama Blue Grid Paper


Hi All, thanks so much for stopping by!  This week's challenge was to use the Bahama blue grid paper with our choice of page pattern.  First off, I the Bahama Blue color because it's so bright and pretty!

For this challenge, I chose to showcase our impromptu day trip to Philadelphia.  On March 16th, my husband and I decided to take the train from Maryland to Philadelphia to see the play "FELA" since we missed it when it was in Washington, DC! Of course while we were there, we had to do "The Great Cheese steak Challenge" (Our little name for it!) So, like the tourist we were, we took a taxi to South Philly and went to BOTH, Pat and Genos to compare. We did not/ could not eat BOTH sandwiches, so we ate probably a 1/4 of each to see which one we liked better- Our results were: we liked Pat's a tad bit more. But, that's not all! While Pat's was a tad it better than Geno's, we found a little "hole in the wall" across the street from the hotel we stayed at on Broad Street called "Mamma Agelina's- OMG! It was incredible.  It was where the locals piled into to eat! It was so good, we saw a local going back there the next day!!!!

But while we were there, we did manage to do a bit of site seeing as well. The Liberty Bell, The LOVE sign, some of the statues around the city.  Though we were only there for a little over a day, it was a great last minute trip and we had a ball.  Here is the page where I captured some of my memories using the Bahama Blue grid paper, page pattern #50, hand written journaling, and a free download.  I hope you enjoy!

Looks like you and your hubby had so much fun and you certainly enjoyed the Philly food. The calendar is just the right touch to journal. Love it.

Love this page! Philly has so much to photo - great job! Like the cornerstones, the zigzag on the photo and the calendar too :)

First off, you and your hubby look like you have so much fun together. I like how you both pose for your pictures!! It looks like a great time. I did the Pat's/Geno's challenge too, and I agree...Pat's! Love your photos and the patterned paper behind your cornerstones. Great page!

Okay, I love the page... However, it is 10pm and you have succeeded in making me HUNGRY! hahaha Seriously though, I am going to have to get up and go to the kitchen to find something that will not taste nearly as good as your cheese steak. I would love to take my family on a taste test adventure like this. Hmmmm burritos perhaps?

It's always great to have an adventure together. The use of "LOVE" in there really gives it a wonderful sense. Really nice to capture the day so well. Can't really go wrong with Bahama Blue paper. Love that paper.

I shouldn't be looking at this so close to lunchtime! This is great.I got so caught up in the Phillie Cheesesteak that I forgot to look at the rest of the layout! The colors work well. I liked your use of the calendar for journaling. Sixteen more minutes til lunch . . . gotta go.

Page pattern 50 is one of my all-time favorites! Looks like a fun trip and it's neat how you used the calendar download for your journaling. I love the LOVE photo! :)

All the great historical spots in Philly! Including Pat and Geno's,always wanted to "do a challenge" too...brave girl!! The Bahama Blue really helped to brighten up the overcast day and makes that LOVE pop! Like how you used the calendar too, creative touch! Nice job Shannon!

I LOVE your page and the Philadelphia adventure you shared with us. Such a fun city to visit. (Kevin and I also tried the famous Ginos - but found a different place we really LOVE closer to downtown. I'll have to try the Mamma Agelina's next time we are there.) LOVE the use of the calendar in the center of your page.
