Las Vegas Paris Casino Layout


I spent Friday - Sunday at my friends Sally's and Beth's lake house enjoying a scrapping weekend get away.  "My Friend Kathy" (MFK) and I began working on our Las Vegas scrapbooks.  I managed to nearly complete 11 double page spreads (22 pages) as well as work on my BBTB2 project.  I thought it was a wonderfully productive weekend.

The first layout I am sharing is the Paris Casino.  I really liked the decor and of course the Eiffel Tower provided for fabulous evening photos of the strip. I conviced MFK to use the same cuts on her Paris page. 


I used two cartridges to complete this layout, Destinations and Summer in Paris, both of which were delivered to my hotel in Vegas by Terri of TerriKrafts.  I cannot say enough kind words about Terri!!!  Who else provides Casino delivery service for free???


I used the shadow cut of Summer in Paris' Eiffel tower to create a layered back ground on the left page.  I cut the detailed tower for the right page. 


I am just amazed at how many cuts I will be able to use from Destinations for this one trip.  Destinations turned out to be a great investment.

In case you do not know, I have blog candy going on our sister blog, Busy with the Cricky CakeSign up as a follower of the Cake blog and you will go into a drawing for a $25 gift voucher from Custom Crops.  Also if you have baked any of our May Cake of the Week recipes you are also elegible for a second $25 gift voucher.  Just leave a link or send an email about the COTW you baked.   The link to the cake blog is in the top left column.

You know I used to live in Vegas and never thought when I moved I would miss it but seeing your pics I actually do LOL. Who would have thought! LOL These are great, love the colors and it's nice to see all the images that I used to take for granted and never took the pics I want now that I'm not there. I guess I'm going to have to go visit Ha Ha! TFS I love them all!
