Ireland, Busch Gardens

Its really been a while since I did a two-pager! You can click the picture to see it bigger.  I really don't want to do a HUGE album for our trip to Busch Gardens considering it was just a long weekend. I have done a few single or two photo layouts already and decided that for the "country" pictures, I will get as many photos on a two-pager as possible, the rest will just go in photo sleeves. This layout is based on a sketch by Cheri at Let's Scrap. She is my GO TO sketch person for two page layouts!!! I used a mix of papers from Best Creations, Reminisce and Daisy D's. I found that I don't have much in the way of GREEN papers!! The shamrocks were cut on my Cricut using a free SVG file from Amy's SVGs and using Sure Cuts A Lot 2. I broke a plate to my Cuttlebug making this layout too!! The 3rd layer of the bottom right shamrock circle is embossed. Well I accidentally used the wrong "sandwich" combination and half way through I thought it was awful tight and then SNAP! Broke plate B clear in half! I actually thought it was pretty funny. I guess you had to be there! Anyway, the other stuff on this layout are doilies that I picked up at the Dollar Tree, the black letters on the wavy paper I THINK are by Recollections but am not positive. Not sure where the white trim came from either!! The small green flowers on the doilies are Prima and the gold coins on the shamrocks are actually tokens from Busch Gardens that the kids didn't end up using!! I thought they worked great on this layout!

Phew, this layout took a long time! I've been working on this on and off since about 9pm and its almost midnight. Time for me to close the eyelids! Have a great night!

Susan, I love the look of this LO! My favorite part is how you used the curved strip of paper across the entire 2 page LO as your title bar to tie the entire LO together!
