Okay..a bit dramatic but I did fall immediately in love with this huge, classically braggy Texan landmark in Grapevine. It is like a city within itself with replicas of Texas most famous tourist attractions such as the Alamo and San Antonio Riverwalk. I was there with Brittany and Janene for the Scrapbook expo which was our focus so we barely scratched the surface of this resort. I do have it on my list of fun things to do for my next birthday:)
As usual I have been running faster than I can keep up and needed a breather so.... Sunday morning I made a command decision, shut my door to hide and very quietly put together the beginning of our album with these layouts of the Gaylord.
I love to "build" borders for my signature "One Event/One" design layouts. Kraft paper looks a bit Texan as well as the barn reds, copper tiles, and metallic gold stars on these pages.
|This is the inside courtyard of the resort.|
To build a border, I choose various complementary patterns of paper, add punched edges, and lay them out on my paper for the best combination before I use adhesive!
I am a super thrifty scrapper! I even cut trim behind pictures to use another day.
p.s. My favorite border punches are Martha Stewart.
p.p.s. I think everyone in Texas should visit the Gaylord Texan:)
