Most of this years Scrapbooking has been completing my Vegas Book and started the Wedding Album of Lou's Wedding.
Some individual pages I've made have been for the Sketch Challenge at Scrapbuddies.

These first three have been made using Pagemaps

I found a sketch on a blog called Scraplogy (think thats how its spelt) love it so much and knew it would be perfect for this pic of my Niece and her daughter its not the best photo and it was taken on the zoom setting but it speaks so much of the love.
The papers are Crate Paper and the flowers are prima.

 This just didn't work out that well at all spent much of time moving stuff and adding stuff till it was a case of put down the embellishment and stand away from the layout.

The plan is to scrapbooking in various sizes, I have an America Crafts Ring Scrapbook. I've worked out I have sleeves for 6 by 6, 8 by 8, 81/2 by 11, 12 by 12 and 6 by 12. I hope this would make it more interesting.
I'm trying use Crate Paper Restoration, which I brought 2 sets to make sure I had enough. I only choose it because it has playing cards on! It was a big mistake cos I so don't do grungy and it certainly challenging me.

The family was so annoyed with me when I made then walk to this sign, just for a photo!
DS said it was important to add photos of ourselves to personalise our visit, otherwise they could be any photos of the web. Hubby not impressed!

DS was paying for the hotels and he booked us in the Bellagio, not only did we have a suite, it had a view of the fountains.

  The most expensive scrapbook page its the front page of the souvenir brochure.

 The Venetian pages are 8 by 8 layouts.

Now I start the LA pages for some reason not so many photos so I can see the end in sight.

6 x 6

It didn't seem right to photo this at Santa Monica Pier but then again it didn't seem right to just forget it. The same reason for scrapbooking they needed to be remembered.

Some layouts I make are singles but when you put them in the album they work well together.

I'm running out of ideas so going for CAS

So the last page and one awful picture but it was important to scrap.
Next time I'm choosing paper I know I love not because I sheet of it was playing cards.
