Two-2 page layouts - 3 Challenges!

I was on a roll today- since I haven't been scrapping for 2 weeks- so I had alot of challenges in front of me to try to do and I did 2- two page layouts and they cover 3 challenges for this week and so I am posting them all here together since they are of our Trip a few years back to Las Vegas (2005) when we took a day trip into Red Rock Canyon.
This first 2-page layout is for Creative Scrappers #167 on left side.....and Sketchy Thursdays on the right side. I used all the same papers on both pages from my old stash- so not sure who they are by but they were from a super stack. I used some older alphabet titles from Artsy Collage and cut them out and put them on black cardstock with pop dots. I used my Cricut cartridge Mickey and Friends for the film strips used as mats for the photos and some rust colored cross stitch thread to make all my x'x's on each page. I journaled in a brown Zig writer and then used the little black squares from the film strip to write with a white gel pen for my sub titles- Las Vegas-Nevada ( which are hard to see in this photo) but there are so cute.
Above is a close-up of the left side for Creative Scrappers #167 sketch challenge.
and here is the right side for Sketchy Thursdays sketch Challenge

Then onto my next two-page layout which only one side( the right side) is for the challenge at Creative Scrappers #168. Again I used all the same papers and embellishments for all 4 pages. I also added some stamps by Stampendous, Autumn Leaves and Scrappy Cat, along with a journal tag stamp.
This layout is titled Mule Time..because as we were driving around in Red Rock Canyon several mules were taking up the road looking for handouts and they weren't taking no for an answer. Which you can see in the layout below- they are right next to the car.

The layout below is the sketch from Creative Scrappers #168 this week- which is a few photos of us in the Red Rock Canyon on a very hot hot day- temps were in the high 100's and the rocks were so hot you couldn't even pick them up and our shoes were melting to the pavement- so you didn't stay in one place to long... that's what I remember the most of this trip.
