First in Flight


This weekend we went to Chicago and spent the day at the Museum of Science and Industry.* They have a replica of the plane the Wright brothers flew at Kitty Hawk, and it looked surprisingly close to thsi one! Well, except that theirs was fabric and you had to lay down rather than sit. I'd love to fly laying down, actually. You could pretend to be Superman at takeoff and sleep the rest of your trip in comfort. I guess adding seats may not have been such a fabulous idea after all.
The stamp is from the new Hanna Stamps set, Vintage Toys. It is a stinkin' cute set! I have seen some ideas made with the teddy bear in the set and I can't wait to ink that stamp up. Some of the paper is from SU, but the rest are scraps. I made this for the sketch challenge at SCS today.
I hope to see you at SCS for the Release Party tomorrow night at 9PM EST.
*The most boring museum ever, and my husband's favorite. When I was a kid I remember walking through a big plastic replica of a heart and seeing babies in jars. Scott remembers seeing slices of a person, preserved so you can see what you look like inside. Those were closed for renovation so we didn't get to gross our kids out. Seeing the more disgusting items and being a bit freaked out is a childhood rite of passage. That means we have to go back. (I don't want to!) Scott was a physics major in college so science is his favorite thing. For me? Leave me at the Art Institute and pick me up next week.

Great card, and your story reminded me of a small carnival that used to come to town when I was a kid! There was a tent you paid to enter that was full weird things in jars, like 2 headed babies etc!
