2012: Chicago: The Cloud Gate, AKA “The Bean” and Navy Pier

On the Saturday morning of our Chicago weekend trip we went and parked at Navy Pier and then took a taxi to “The Cloud Gate” in Millennium Park, also know as “The Bean”.   This was one of the things that Jon wanted to see while he was in Chicago.

I themed the page around the shiny silver silver of The Bean.  The background pages both have hints of sliver in them, and I cut a “Bean” out of some shiny silver card stock that I had to spread across the two pages.

Notice that I also cut the two middle pictures in half and put half on each of the pages.  This is a unique way to get more pictures on the layout, and I enjoyed the picture of Jon taking a picture of his reflection – and then splitting it onto two different pages.

I used my Cricut machine to cut out the city scape across the bottom of both pages.  I know that these are landmarks from several different cities, but it works well with this Chicago page.
