Spring Dance 1955

This lo is using some photos I found of my grandmother from 1955. They were taken at Mitchel AFB in Long Island, NY before a dance they were going to. My mom remembered that the dress was charcoal and white colored so I used those colors in my lo and thought that the pink complimented those colors well. I just used Bazzill cardstock from Michaels for my papers. I used my Cricut cartridge Nifty Fifties for the cuts of the drink and dress form. I used some Me & My Big Ideas glittered letters for the title and 1955 and used some Spellbinders oval dies to cut and emboss the journaling tag. I'm really happy with how this lo turned out. I am going to try and find some pictures of my grandfather at this time also and scrap those soon. Thanks for looking.

Windy City Layout

Another really simple layout. I used my Destinations cartridge with this one. I cut out the title at 4" and the Chicago tag at 3.5". I cut the Chicago city outline tag at 4.5". I used two pictures from our trip to Chicago this past January. One is Will with the city outline behind him and the other is Will at the Bean in Millenium Park. I just used regular cardstock scraps for my tags. Thanks for looking!
