Las Vegas Girls' Weekend

Here's a fun two-page layout that I just finished. The subject of this particular layout is my Girls' Weekend with my besties last August. These girls were my bridesmaids in my wedding and this August weekend was our next time all together.



For this layout I just let things flow after deciding to loosely base it off a PageMaps sketch by Becky Fleck I had from the sketch book I got for Christmas. (Thanks Deb!) It is a loose interpretation of the sketch but basically has elements like the strip of photos along the bottom, the vertical element cutting into the strip and a bigger image cutting over the two pages. The sketch had a line of like 4 bigger photos along the bottom and just one bigger photo. Since there were just too many photos I liked from our trip, I changed it into more like a filmstrip. :)

I also used my new Grand Calibur for the cutting with my new nestabilities. (Guess this page just likes to incorporate new Christmas presents! These were from my mom.) And finally the fun swirly paper was from Alicia herself. I got the fun paper for my last birthday...lol! My good, old Silhouette was used the title. It needed some love.

Now to figure out where our next Girls' Weekend should be.... I guess it can be about anywhere, except Springfield, Illinois. We've already done that one! HAHA!

Fun layout! Love the film strip photo concept on the bottom and the way you continued your title into the journaling with the red color. :)
