Wicked Good Time...

About a month ago, my mom took me, my daughter and two of my nieces to San Francisco to see the play Wicked.

It was daughter and I had seen it before, but it is still awesome...and funny!  It was the first time that my mom and nieces watched it though and they had a great time.

It took me a couple of weeks to complete the layout (and another couple to post because I am a slow creator), but it is finally done.

One of my main blocks was the background papers.  I didn't know if I wanted to use plain black cardstock or plain white card stock, but then I found this Amy Tangerine Plus One paper in my stash that was perfect to mimic the black and white of the poster.

The inspiration for the layout was the poster (in the layout above) and the playbill.

I actually wanted to put it on the layout, but it was too big for the layout plus I already had a good picture of the girls in front of the poster for my layout.

From the playbill, I pulled out the black and the white and of course the green, but I also pulled out the red from her lips.

Everything I used was from my stash (yippee!) and I am sure it is all pretty old.  Along with the background paper, I used the backside of another Plus One paper (the polka dot), a black glitter sheet from the DCWV Street Lace pack, green swirly glittery paper from K&Company, American Crafts white and dark red cardstock, white glitter paper, my mega date stamp, green thickers, Heidi Swapp color shine in white, black velvet, & citron, and a journal card from the Stampin' Up PL Love Story

I am really trying to use stuff that I have and not buy too much anymore...but that doesn't mean I haven't bought anything this past month! haha

Thank you for looking! :)
