Gatsby, scrapbooked

So I know I pretty much covered my love of this movie in my Project Life pages but when I was heading to a crop last week I needed some stuff to work on and I kind of wanted to document it in a layout. 

I'm also fairly obsessed with one song in particular from the soundtrack so I decided to pay homage to both at the same time.

The base of the layout is this super cool platinum paper that I found in the specialty section at Hobby Lobby.  It's from The Paper Studio and the color is listed as crinkle cream but its way more metallic in person than cream. I cut the lyrics from the song on 36# white vellum, the font I used was Betty Noir. The cream and gold paper is from Anna Griffin and came in this Studio Calico kit. The lettered and numbered tag and the taupe and cream card on the bottom both came from this Basic Grey Hello die cut pack and the Telegram card came from this Basic Gray Hello pack.  The flower bobby pin is from Maggie Holmes and the pink glitter alpha is from Dear Lizzy.

I knew I wanted to type something movie related on the telegram when I got home so I did a bit of research on telegrams from the 1920's and found a cool font to use, its called simply Telegram.  I used a line from the book/movie since the song is from the Daisy perspective I made the telegram from Daisy to Jay.  I scanned the little card and opened it in Photoshop Elements.  I laid my text right on top and then printed it out on a piece of cardstock.  I lined up the original and reprinted just the text and it was perfect.

I had already use my ticket from when I saw the movie in 3D in my Project Life or I would have clipped it as well, but its nice to have the ticket from opening day to show the date and where I saw the film.

If you haven't seen it yet and your a fan of the book I really suggest you see it, I think you'll enjoy it.

Have a great week!
