Vegas Birthday

My daughter turned 21 years old on Friday the 13th, January 2006 ... the perfect setup for a Las Vegas birthday vacation. We stayed at the Paris Hotel and got this great nighttime picture of the Eiffel Tower replica that's in front of the hotel. So, when the Cricut Circle announced their French Manor  cartridge contest, I decided to make a this for Stacey and use it as my entry.

 It's a 10" x 10" shadowbox. The frames, cut using the French Manor cartridge, were colored with a bronze ink and embossed with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. I attached them to the mats for the pictures and then "pop dotted" them to the base with foam dimensionals. I etched the glass using the Eiffel Tower (also from French Manor) and the 'Vegas' from the Tie The Knot cartridge.

 The journaling is computer generated.

My project wasn't selected as a contest winner, but I had a great time making this and Stacey loves it ... that's really what it's all about anyway!!

Hi Jo

I'm on big time catch up, off to look round, but hopefully back into blogland again unrestrained.

Super l/o.
