The Vegas Strip - Assorted Sights - Quick & Easy Layout

Guess who is back to scrapping Vegas?  Oh yeah - MFK (my friend Kathy) and I have a zillion photos still to scrap. For this layout I gathered a selection of photos that I wanted to include in my scrapbook but I did not want to do a complete layout around each photo.  The obvious solution?  The Strip!  I used the Destinations cartridge and the "The Strip" cut as a title. 

On the left page of the layout I included photos of my husband and MFK's husband admiring the lady on the Treasure Island ship, the MGM lion, the Hard Rock Cafe's signature guitar, and Harrah's.  I embellished with Jolee's.

On the above layout I included photos of the husbands standing under the hugified stripper woman (disclaimer we DID NOT go into the strip bar, we just photographed them with the woman while we waited to be seated at our show - the FAB FOUR - next door), the Eiffel Tower by day, and the front of the Paris Casino.  And again I used Jolee's to embellish. 

As the title set says, I promised a Quick & Easy layout.  The paper I used was ordered from Scrap Your Trip.  Julie carries a huge selection of paper and embellies with which to scrap a trip to almost anywhere.  The paper you see above is the backside of the paper I used for the layout.  I took an extra sheet of the paper and made to angle cuts and used the "Only in Vegas" side of the paper as a decorative element on my pages.  After affixing the large angle cuts to the pages I just had to mat my photos on red cardstock, cut my title and embellish with my Jolee's.  This truly was a super quick and very easy layout.
