Las Vegas - 4 Weeks to go!

I don't think I've mentioned this... but just four weeks from now I will be making my first visit to Las Vegas, NV.  I can't even remember how the idea for this trip began, but it started back in the fall at a friend's wedding and has turned into what's bound to be a trip of epic proportions!

On May 14, Hubs and I will fly from Grand Rapids, MI, my younger brother Will will fly from Austin, TX, Hubs' younger brother Tyler will fly from wherever he happens to be at the time, and our friends Tim and Terri will fly from Washington DC and we will descend upon Vegas where we'll stay for four days of fun.

We have a six person suite at the Marriott Grand Chateau right on the strip, we're in the process of booking show tickets, and already have plans to do a tour/bar crawl of all of the festive hotel lobbies.  Yes, it's going to get a little crazy!

The trip is going to be extra special because we don't get to see either of our brothers, or our friends Tim and Terri very often at all, being that we all live in different parts of the country.  We can't wait to spend four days with them, make some wonderful memories that we'll cherish for a lifetime, and take a TON of pictures!

We've all been looking forward to this trip for months, and for most of us it will be our first time in Vegas.  To add to the excitement, I thought it would be fun to send everyone a little Vegas-y fun in the mail each week for the last four weeks leading up to our trip.

I got the chocolate casino chips at World Market, and used some cello bags from Stampin' Up! and the Top Note die for my Big Shot Machine to cut the toppers, and printed the image and text on my Mac.

How fun will it be to get these in the mail?!  I'll be sharing with you my Vegas countdown mailers as the weeks go by... be sure to let me know if you have any ideas for me!

Stampin' Up! products used:  Real Red & Whisper White cardstock, Big Shot Machine, Top Note die, 3 inch cello bags, Snail adhesive.  To purchase any of these products, please visit my SU store.
