2013 MMDT Challenge #7: BIG BOY

Challenge #7– April Feature Grid – Bahama Blue


POST WINDOW: April 1st – 7th


Use Mosaic Moments Bahama Blue Grid paper and Page Pattern of your choice be sure to name the pattern you chose in your post.



Element options - please choose one or more of the following:


  • Handwritten Journaling
  • Stickers  

On our way to Gotta-Scrap Inn in Manchester, MI, Anita and I stopped at Big Boy for lunch. I took lots of photos because I knew I wanted to do a Big Boy page eventually. Imagine my surprise when I realized how nicely the Bahama Blue paper brought out the blue in Big Boy’s eyes!



The colors of the Big Boy restaurant chain are red and white, so that made the planning of this page very simple. I knew I wanted to use red and white Paper Tiles from, and I had to look for a page pattern that utilized several 1” square pieces. That in mind, I settled on Page Pattern #39 - “5 Focal Spots with Mosaic Accents” from Page 2 is Page Pattern #39 on its side, and Page 1 of my layout is my own creation as I had to work around the Big Boy cut-out I snipped from my paper placemat.




I used 2 free downloads from FREE ALPHABETS for my BIG BOY title and FREE DOWNLOAD JOURNAL BOXES-RED for my handwritten journaling square. I also used a date cornerstone, and for the first time, I did NOT ink the edges of my photos/paper tiles. I liked the clean, sharp edges of the red and white against the blue.


I hope you enjoyed our trip to Big Boy!

These pages are GREAT!!! You should submit the page layout to Big Boy for them to use as advertisement. They would love this. You captured the experience of dining there. Love it.

I love it! I love the colors, the pattern, the photos- ALL OF IT! You did a great job! I used to go to Bob's Big Boy when I was a child. I don't think any of them exist anymore around here. Really beautiful pages!!!

The Big Boy icon brings back memories . . . I waitressed at Shoney's Big Boy for two years in the early '70s, right after I graduated from college. Do they still carry the trays on their fingertips? This is a great layout and certainly embraces the spirit of the place. Great job.

I absolutely love this page Heather! All of your pictures are very nice. I like the 1" design you used with the red and white blocks. I certainly enjoyed your trip to Bob Big Boy's, it's an awesome page. BTW, I agree with you-they are dissappearing!!!! Nice you have some memories of it!

I love this page! It is so bright and colorful. And the 1" inch squares are a perfect mimic of Big Boy's overalls. The Bahama Blue really does set it off.

OOOH!! Around here they were Manners Big Boy, in the Toledo/Sandusky area they were Frisch's...I can taste the Hot Fudge Cake Sundae even now! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. They had a Special sauce long before Mickey D's!! The iconic red and white tiles and Big Boy himself...perfect elements to use to enhance the photos that capture the restaurant inside and out! The Bahama Blue Grid really makes this an All-American hit! Well done!
