England in 85 - 2 Page Layout and Video

Yes, that's me at 21 along with my beautiful mother.  Can I turn back the clock and look that way again but know what I know now?

No, guess not.  Anyway, these photos were taken on a trip with my parents right after I graduated from college.  They made annual or bi-annual sales incentive trips from their business and this time we all got to go.  I felt so grown up having my own room in a fancy hotel.

The travel agency that coordinated these trips was wonderful.  They always created a good mix of tours and activities and a fantastic event on the last night.  For our last night in London, the Queen's band played for us.  Then we had a regular band for dancing.

For the page, I've use some paper by Stampin' Up!  The video addresses the problem of having too much of a good thing.  In the Two Page Terrific class, we deal with not having enough of the perfect paper for a two page layout. This time I had plenty but using it for the background for both pages could have been overwhelming.

Also in the video is creating these embellishments on the Cricut and spicing up the cardstock a bit as we do in the Creative Cardstock class.

For the title, I combined a large raw chipboard capital letter with some Thickers.  A bit of paint and Glossy Accents help them match up.

More information on the Two Page Terrific class and the Creative Cardstock class is found here.  These are self-paced so you can join in at any time.

Here is the sketch:
