More Vegas pages (CQC148)

Well, hello hello blog friends! This summer just seems to be getting busier and busier! We are having a TON of fun, but I am having a hard time keeping up with anything, even the dishes! ;) I know, stamping should ALWAYS take priority over housework (and in my heart it does!) but sometimes I have to be practical, too. :( Oy, it's looking like the next few weeks will be just as sporadic, so sorry to be MIA, but we have just a couple more weeks to go. We will be out of town for some of the time, so posting will be minimal at best, but then I will be BACK! :) Hope you are all doing well and having loads of fun, too!

Ok, this week's ColourQ palette, looks like THIS!
Seeing the pink, I knew I had to do something girly.... I had a stack of pics still laying around from the Vegas Girls Trip I went on last summer, so I went with that. 
The title was made by cutting out my own "playing cards," and stamping them with the mini heart from my TCP Bingo stamp set, then I used sticker letters for "Vegas." I had a few Vegas themed stickers that had the right colors, and some Vegas buttons that I incorporated. 
The DSP is new SU! and reminded me of some of the designs that are on dollar bills, so I went with that cutting 2 large banners with my LID die on the LH page, and border punching a strip on the RH page. It's actually a heart border punch, but I just let the bottom parts of the hearts peek out from behind the photos, the v shape mimicking the fishtail banners. That's a great tip, to really look at the different shapes you can make with your punches! :) 
I did my journaling with my label maker again, was bummed that the shade of green isn't quite Lucky Limeade, but by that point it was already done, and (in the interest of time, of course!) decided to just go with it! 
I hope you like my pages and I'd love to see what you will do with them at the ColourQ this week! 

Big hugs, sorry for the absence, but I'll be around more soon :)

xoxox, Noelle
