Creative Scrappers #127

I love using black and pink combinations!!! I had so much fun with the circle in this layout!! This was taken outside Isle of Cari Casino in Booneville MO, where I went to gamble for the first time. I got ADDICTED!! Not to gambling, but to collecting the cards and zip cords that go along with them!! SO MUCH FUN!!! I have seriously added to my collection since then!
