Good Morning! Jean here. Each month when I receive my kit, I feel like it is Christmas. I ooh and ahh over each item and then the wheels start turning. I love it when an idea comes together quickly and for this layout it did! I think I used almost everything in the kit on this one layout!

When my daughter was in middle school, we spent a weekend in Toronto. My husband and daughter took in a showing of Phantom of the Opera. He and I had seen it and loved it and we knew Jennifer would as well. It is a memory she has treasured. Some where along long the line, he promised that they would see it again before she gets married. With Jennifer getting engaged in October and the wedding this September, they knew they needed to make time to see the show.  As luck would have it, she had a conference in Philadelphia and the show was in town. Her dad met her there and they once again saw Phantom. It was a magical evening for the two of them. Of course, they brought me the program! And, I saved the Etickets (not as much fun) and a layout of the theater. 

The Heidi Swapp Dreamy Ticket to Ride was the perfect accent piece! I hate to throw anything away, so I used the packaging from the Prima Silk Flowers as the cover for my mini album. Inside that album is the journaling, a copy of the tickets and a seating chart. I used the Paper Pen and Stencil on the cover.I used the Chalk Pad and Glimmer Glaze on other embellies. I even inked the Word Stickers. It is so nice when you have everything you need to pull a layout together!!
