Vegas! featuring Echo Park

Happy Friday, friends!  Missy here with a layout to share :)

The minute I saw this GORGEOUS bokeh paper from Echo Park's Capture Life collection, I knew I had to use it for some of our Las Vegas photos!  When I think of Vegas, I think of lights, bling and lots of color, so that's what I went for with this page.  I used one of the July sketches from Stuck?! sketches.  This was created for a forum challenge earlier this week to use some glitter and something shiny on a layout.

I usually use a lot of mixed media products on my layouts, but this background paper is just too gorgeous to cover.  I pulled out several patterns of paper for all the triangles but left the background the way it was.  I popped up a few of the triangles and my photos to give some dimension.  I did add a few splatters of gold Color Shine at the end.

I wanted to make sure I added some glitter and some shiny elements, like this gold thread.  I also used gold embossing powder on these cute little stars.

I found a package of these cute arrow paper clips on clearance at Hobby Lobby a few months ago.  I think it adds a great touch here!  And my glitter powder did make a bit of a mess, but I like it.  When I think of Vegas, I think of glitter everywhere, so it goes with the theme...haha!

These alphas are perfect for my big bold title.  I added in a little Heidi Swapp stamp and a few of the EP stickers. 

We'd love to have you come join in all the fun over on the boards!  Lots of challenges to choose from and lots of prizes to be won :)  I hope this inspires you to use a background paper that is just too pretty to cut up as well as some glitter and shine!

Thanks for stopping by today!
