Mt. Rushmore after dark
I had to add another page that I scrapbooked today. We visited Mt. Rushmore in the afternoon, went out for dinner and then came back for the evening festivities. There is a presentation by one of the park rangers then a video and then the lights come on while everyone is singing the National Anthem. It is quite an impressive experience.
One presentation we heard was that the sculptor put in aspects that only show in certain light, certain times of the day or certain seasons. He had quite the eye for detail. Seeing the monument at night was much different than during the day.
I used the Big Shot Top Note Die to frame the pictures in 2 different ways. I also used the Top Note and cut it in half to use for the titles. The eagle is an inexpensive yard sale find that I thought would add a nice touch. It was a pin and I just cut the posts off. The buttons are from a big jar of buttons I inherited from my mom.
