Scrapbook Layout: Chicago

I'm going to try and show the rest of the layouts I recently completed.  This one was done to remember a great "Girls Weekend" in Chicago and was super quick due to the pre-printed "Chicago" paper from Sugar Tree.  I always look for these types of paper to use on a trip layout as I save time and money on the titles.  I also try to keep a few pieces of ephemera that I can add to the layout.  For this page I added a piece of the tourist map showing the location of our hotel...designated with stars punched from red and white paper. Notice the top and bottom pictures?  I added an additional photo to the group shots (of the gal who took the picture)!  This way I have a complete "group photo"!  The date and titles on the red cardstock are rub ons (Reminisce "Lamplighter Script").  I used a black Sharpie for the journaling.

So glad you joined us at lasting memories. I like how you added in the missing member. Our group did something similar. We took balcony shots of the group so that I could be in the right side then popped down to take the left. Worked great. Wonderful paper find too.
