Viva Las Vegas

Travel Pictures are some of my favorites to scrapbook. For many reasons, really. First, they are usually bright, shiny with vivid colors. They hold so many great memories and there are a million stories behind them. Also, I don't think of them as serious or precious (like maybe baby or wedding pictures would be) so I feel free to get really loose and do whatever I like to them. 

Last October I took a long weekend in Las Vegas. I thought I would share the pages I made to remember how much fun we had there! Most of the supplies are from this kit from Studio Calico, with a little October Afternoon mixed in. I'll link to things of interest at the bottom of the post.

Check it out:

(side comment: I want my home to look like the Cosmopolitan Casino. It was like a big, grown up Barbie Dream House. If I thought I could get away with it, I would make a mural just like those windows on my walls-ha!)

(note: I used Stickles to add bling directly to the pictures. So perfect for a layout about sparkly casinos, right?)

(note: for this layout I had the cheesiest picture of the four of us. I stuck it in a vellum envelope and journalled right on top. I love the way that turned out, I will definitely do this again!)

(note: This layout took entirely too long. I was inspired by a layout I found online, but sheesh, doing all that stitching took FOREVER.)

supplies: Studio Calico-Photo Booth add-on kit, black letter stickers-American Crafts, badges & fabric tags- Ormolu, wood stars-Studio Calico, Las Vegas postcards bought in gift shop

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! M.
