This is the two page spread for the SHCG Weeks #34-36 WC which was to create a lo, any lo, to keep the momentum going within our CG. I decided to create a spread based on a simple sketch of twenty pictures taken on the same day the WC was due. As a result I had to keep it simple, and I'm happy that I actually scrapped something so soon after the fact. It was cheap, too. I got the stickers at Dollar Tree and the grey cs was 5 for $1 at Michael's. I didn'tt use my Cricut either, nor any inking this time! The Olde English part of the title was inspired by a stroller who had the abbreviation of the city tattooed across half of his chest. I thought it was funny because it can also be read as "The S.O.B." Anyway, I also chose this multi-photo format condensed into two pages, because, other than the photos with us in them, we had no personal ties to the subjects; thus, I didn't want to give them as much time and attention spread out across pages in an album. I thought our family photo enlarged as a 5x7 surrounded by miscellaneous stroll pics, and the classic cars highlighted by the hood ornament 5x7 conveyed what I tried to accomplish--a quick lo for a short stroll. The scan 'n' stitch job cut off the left and right sides of both pages.
Journaling on left page reads: Sunday, September 16, 2007 - Every year El Sobrante closes street access on San Pablo Dam Road between Appian Way & El Portal for its annual street fair. It is not, by far, the most happening of events, but people do attend. In the half hour that it took us to wander down the street and back, we scored free hats from Costume Corner, watched BMX bikers do stunts on ramps, listened to Downtown Rhythms perform 70s covers, and ogled a collection of classic cars.
