Our challenge this week at Totally Gorjuss is RAWR and we are sponsored by Heather's Hobbie Haven. I saw this challenge as my opportunity to get another scrapbook layout made as I knew I had this picture of a dinosaur taken in the T-Rex restaurant in Orlando. It's such a great place to eat. It is owned by Landry's who also own the Rainforest Cafes so if you have ever visited one of those you know it will be a fun restaurant. There is a meteor shower across the ceiling every so often and there are themed rooms based on the different animals. Graham was feeling very hungry so he chose this meal, which was rather larger than he expected. 

I thought this page was just right for a distressed look. I've used some K&Co papers which have been torn and edged wit DI Spiced Marmalade. I added some scrim, Tim Holtz recipe salvage sticker, one the edge bracket die cut and ticket for journalling, string recycled from a clothes ticket, Marianne die cut circle and star border and the title letters from Dunelm Mill.
