Titanic exhibit

Public Enemies Columbus Merchandise

My oldest daughter and two of her three boys took me to see the Titanic Exhibit in Milwaukee on Mother's Day. It was a wonderful exhibit and if you are even a little bit interested in the history of that fateful ship, I encourage you to see the exhibit if it comes to a sight near you. We weren't able to get photos inside the exhibit, but they take a photo of your group before you enter and at the end you are able to chose one of several backgrounds (we selected the grand staircase) and purchase copies. I was able to use it and our "boarding passes" and some photos I found on the internet of items that are in the exhibit to create this three page layout. The papers I used are some VERY old ones I've had for a long time. And I don't even know who they are by because there was no identification on them. But they were perfect for these pages (they look like rusty old metal).
I used two of the boarding passes on the last page so you can see both sides. Each of us received one upon entering and the pass tells the statistics of one of the passengers that was on the ship (age, sex, married or single, adult or child, which class they were traveling in, etcl). At the end of the exhibit you could find your
"passenger" to see if they died that day or were one of the survivors. I also stitched a clear pocket onto the second page to hold the brochure that we received.

What AMAZING layouts of the Titanic exhibit . . . I agree . . . the background paper couldn't have been more perfect for this subject! This is GREAT!
