Wrigley Field Layout

The Layouts
A few days ago I shared my Chicago Bean layout. I made a companion page to that layout, so in the scrapbook the two pages would match as they have the same theme and color scheme, even though it isn't specifically a double paged layout. 

The Tour
Another highlight from the trip was a behind the scene tour we took of Wrigley Field. My hubby grew up in northwest Indiana and was always a Bears, Bulls and Cubs fan, but had never walked around the ballpark. The tour took us to the normally inaccessible places like the press box, dugout, clubroom/dressing rooms and the outskirts of the field. 

The Details
The first layout I made upon returning home was actually this Wrigley Field layout. 

I used the contents of my "Summer Fun" kit from Scrapbook & Cards Today's blog. It had the red and blue Cubs colors within the kit colors, and it made it easier to get started with the scrapping. I bought a Cubs keychain for the purpose of scrapping and incorporated it into the title. The softball was on a price tag, which I carefully pealed off and reused. 

I used some Elle's Studio Tidbits tags as functional embellishments. I grouped three of them under the title with my journaling included. 

I grouped a row of them at the top of the page as a sub-title. I stamped on some of the tags and added embellishments to others. I threaded them with a yellow cord to tie them together. 

Realistically, these are probably the only pages I'll make of my Chicago trip. In two days I'm off to Wales and London, so I'll be inundated by new photos and souvenirs to scrap. I'm really glad I got these two pages done in the interlude.
