The Story.  We saw one of our favorite standup comedians was doing a show in Vegas.  We picked up tickets to the show on a whim and made a weekend out of it!

No pictures.  At this point, I stopped taking pictures in Vegas since we’d been on several weekend trips together.  I’m not bothered by it at all.

Glad I kept the room key.  I don’t always use room keys in layouts, but I’m glad I did here.  We’d stayed at the Monte Carlo a couple of times but this was the last time before the fire.  I didn’t realize that until I was writing this post!  Oddly, we’d be in Vegas again the following year a couple of days after the fire.

Not my best design.  I’m not the biggest fan of  how this turned out and that’s okay.  The tickets were hard to match with the other elements.  But, the story always wins.

Other Vegas layouts.  Seeing a theme?  2004 Vegas trip, 2005 Vegas trip, Bachelor/Bachelorette weekend in Vegas.

Cue Up Some Color

Color PaletteI’ve been skipping around Pinterest lately hunting for ideas for the wedding scrapbook.  I love looking at color palettes that are made from pretty pictures like this one, this one and this one.

It didn’t even occur to me that I could make my own!  It actually gives me something to do with all my random pictures of inanimate objects.

Making these can get addicting very quickly, so I’ve done just a few to share!

A Flower Stand in Southern France

I took this picture last summer at the Cours-Saleya market in Nice, France.  I couldn’t resist the orchids!

Color PaletteDreaming of Summer in St. Tropez

Same trip.  We escaped the buzz of the main area of St. Tropez for a second and took in this view.

Color PaletteGolden Fields of Poppies

A trove of California poppies from just around the corner.

Color PaletteParasols in Vegas

These parasols were hanging from the ceiling at the Wynn in Las Vegas.  I love the colors!
