This month's challenge over at The Story Matters inspired me to do a layout about the shuttle Challenger, and the day it exploded. I had a picture of the Challenger that was taken 4 months prior to the disaster, when it landed at the Air Force base I was stationed at, and I was listening to the launch on the radio at work. It left a huge memory, and really needed a layout so I could record the story. Perfect for TSM's challenge.  The sketch over at Stuck On You Sketches gave me the direction to go with the layout.

I used Theresa Collins papers, Making Memories mini letter stickers and mini alpha rubons. I downloaded a picture of the flight patch from that mission and cut it in the shape of an apple (for the teacher on the crew) along with the shadow using A Child's Year cartridge.  I also used Indie Art (wings), Hannah Montana (birds), Base Camp (letters), Tags, Bags, Boxes (tags), Gypsy Wanderings (postage stamp mat)

Sorry about the odd curve look to the picture... when I scanned it, the popdots must have kept it from laying flat and I wasn't paying attention. heh. Thanks for looking though!
