Let's Scrap Challenge 2-11-15

Good Morning My Friends,

I finally started work on my New York Scrapbook!  Hooray!  Last May, my husband reached a milestone with his company, 25 years of employment there.  So his company sent us to New York to celebrate.  We decided to take the Acela Train (which was so comfortable) from Baltimore to New York and his company put us up at the Grand Hyatt right next to Grand Central Station.  We arrived on Sunday and stayed until Thursday.  Wednesday night they had a banquet for all of the members of the company that had reached 25 years.  They picked us up at the hotel in Limo's it was so much fun!

So here is the sketch from Let's Scrap Sketches

And here is my take on the sketch:

You can click on the photo's to make them bigger!

Now I am going to show you my flip flap book up close (Warning Picture Heavy)

I started my flip flap book with a very cool post card that I got, a New York City Tag and an airplane brad that I thought went along with the theme.

Next, I added another cool post card and some journaling.

There are a couple more flip flap pages in between but I thought I would show you this last one; it is the page in the book and the last flip flap page out side the book.

This is what the layout looks like in the album.

This is the fun New York Album I got for all of our New York adventures to go in.

I am entering this scrapbook layout into the following challenges:
