Tickets

Hi: The Simon Says stamp blog Monday challenge I playing along this weeks theme is tickets. The first thing that came to mind was movies, then traffic, then concert. Well all week I've been working on a scrapbooking page for the concert that my husband Scott,daughter Nichole, and I attended last Friday. The concert was at Windstar casino which is only a couple of hours from our house so we left early to go checkout the casino, pool, and check into the room my husband had booked for us. You see the Keith Urban concert tickets and weekend was my birthday present from the two of them a few months back. We got there a little after lunch; checked in and went exploring. This was my daughters first experience at a casino. After a little while and I mean about an hour she and both of us decided it wasn't our way to have fun. Although for my daughters first experience she actually won money. A rare thing we told her. The pool at the resort attached to the casino was beautiful; one of those you walk into no steps. They had lounge chairs in the shallow end so you could sit in the water to get your tan. So thats were we spent the majority of the afternoon. Then it is time to go to the concert and I asked my daughter you have the tickets? Yes she says and pulls out 3 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper that our tickets were printed on. I remember when you got real tickets to go to concerts, sporting events, even the movies. Anyone else?? When I was a teen and in my early 20's I had a cigar box with them all in it. Sadly I didn't take them when I left and I'm sure my mother threw them out. Sad I know, but nothing I can do about it now. As I was making this scrapbook page I had to cut down the paper to get to the ticket. The interesting thing about this is you had to take the whole sheet to the concert the barcode they scanned was at the bottom of the page. Here's my scrapbook page.
We went to the gate where the checked our purses (backpacks), and climbed the bleachers to our seats and yes we had actual seats with backs and everything. The concert was amazing and I felt spoiled by my hubby and daughter!! I have to admit though I was thinking I love Keith Urban but, Come on an outdoor concert in August in southern Oklahoma I was expecting it to be hot right. Nope it was about 70 with a constant breeze. A more beautiful night I could't have asked for. Thanks so much Scott and Nichole (Colie)!!!! Love you both!!! Thanks always for looking!! Hope you like it.
