Thunderbirds & Makeshift Hats

I based this layout on a sketch over at Sketches With A Twist.  The twist part of the challenge was to use a rubber stamp.  I used the Zig Zag Star Border stamp around the edges of my layout.
The layout is about a Thunderbird's air show that my son and I attended. We had to travel to get there and when we arrived, we realized we'd forgotten our hats.  So, we decided to create hats from things we found in the car.  He used the hood of a rain jacket and I folded an old map into a hat.  I have to say, I got a lot of strange looks, but I was happy that I was able to see airplanes without too much squinting.
