Tribute to My Town

Our first assignment for March was to take pictures of our neighborhood and create a mosaic layout. Well, at this time of year in Connecticut, there's not much to look at except slush, mud puddles and sticks. Even wildlife is hard to come by!  For a brief moment, I considered a page showing the devastation to all my neighbors' yards - almost every one has a pile of branches to be cleared, and stumps where there were trees before our big storm in October. I decided that would be interesting, but just a tad too depressing!   So I decided to use pictures of my town , Bristol, and the things it is known for: the Watch and Clock Museum, the Carousel Museum, ESPN, balloon festivals and the Chrysanthemum Festival. Enjoy! What is your hometown known for?

After seeing this challenge to scrap your hometown, I thought about all of the pics I have of my hometown - somewhere in my scrap room...we are packing and eventually will be moving into a smaller place and lots of my stuff is "somewhere"; but as soon as we get settled, I want to do this!!! Thanks for sharing!

By looking at your layout you would think it's beautiful in Bristol year round - just leave out the slush and mud puddles. Great job!

What a great way to show us your town! I love the way you carried the light green behind the town sign. Great job!

Love how you did mostly 1" squares except for the Bristol sign which pops off the page. Looks like a really nice town!

Bright and Bold colors brings so much life to the layout, I wish I could zoom in to see all the details! Love balloon races...we used to have them here too, so fun. Love the clocks at the top!

The top row is my favorite part--great idea! I had the same problems you did so took new pics all over our downtown. Hope you like it when I get it submitted. We have always said we are going to visit New England but haven't. Now I really want to. Maybe next fall.

Love the pop of color in the title and the way this really shows off the town's highlights. Being a New Englander, I've been to CT but not to Bristol. I may have to correct that oversight! Nice job.

Bristol looks like a lovely place to live!

I love the accent color you choose for your alpha tiles--they really pop off of the page. And the photos you selected to showcase your town are wonderful. The clock museum looks so intriguing and the carousel horse close up is great.
