Atlantic City

Hi you all, today I have a layout from Day 5 of LOAD 215. That day it was a Thursday and the prompts are based on color: this one is black/red/white. So I went looking through the box of Mom's  old pictures to see what I could do with a B&W photo, but none were really clicking with me. Then I got into the bottom of the box where the post cards and other memorabilia was at (now I know exactly where I get this from :) and found this B&W photo of Atlantic City boardwalk and knew I had this odd only one pic of me on the boardwalk:
With Caesar! from Caesar's Palace the gentlemen was kind enough to let us take his picture before we went in to the casino. What a perfect photo with him dressed red, right? So I pulled My Mind's Eye Lost and Found paper pad for the papers. I used the monthly sketch at Scrappin & Chattin for a quick layout.
 I used some die cuts from that jellibean pack and the hi is what I cut out last month with my cameo. So I used the postcard as a picture .
 The picture of me (era mid 1980s) and Caesar with more arrows ans washi tape too. I inked up the wooden veneer arrow to match the color scheme
 Added a small journaling block form last month's kit
The title came from the alphas in this month's kit :) The large alpha just looks like a lit up sign :)
Thanks for stopping by today, I'm still going strong with LOAD and I haven't missed a day yet. So will try to post more layouts when I can.... You all have a fantastic day :)


  1. Totally LOVE this! Love the vintage postcard pic, the adorable photo of you & "Caesar" (teehee), and the alphas couldn't be more perfect!

  2. Really love this layout!!! Love the colors of the papers.... love the title... just all coordinates perfectly together. Beautiful! And if you ever do make a stop back at AC, let me know!! I live only 10 mins away!

  3. Wow Tina, I love, love, love this layout! How fun to use that postcard and then a picture of you with Caesar! Such a fun layout and what a fun time to reminisce of live in the 80's! Love it!!! Hugs, Brenda
