These are all photos and layouts of the Stanley hotel. Jim surprised me with it and made reservations there. It was really quaint and fun to be there. Since The Shining was filmed there, I had to rent the movie. They disguised it in the movie pretty well. I did not recognize a lot of the hotel at all. But I am still glad I saw it after my stay so as not to look for Jack...
Both of these layouts were done with Coordinates Collections kits. The one on the left is Bazzill and Three Bugs in a Rug papers. I cut out the little circle shapes. I have to say, those ones with the circles within the circles were a big pain to cut. I am glad I had my cute little Stampin Up scissors with me else I would still be cutting. LOL
The layouts of the inside were done with another Coordinates Collections kit. I think the patterned paper is Chatterbox, the chipboard is Lil' Davis. I added Prima and Bazzill flowers, Lasting Impressions Matte brads, and used the Autumn Leaves stamps underneath the sides to add an extra accent. I am not sure why, but I really struggled with this layout. While I rarely do it, I actually made a layout, tore it apart and redid it. It is still not my favorite, but at least it is done.
And that always feels good.
