The day before we were heading home from this trip - which happened to be St. Patrick's Day, we decided to do a "bar crawl". Once I was done feeling yucky from the heat - bar three to be exact - I was ready to join in on the fun. We had a great time and with the exception of a couple of questionable drink choices it was a day/evening to remember! I think that I have enjoyed doing these pages the most, but the whole book has had me reliving the trip and bringing back such great memories and isn't that what scrapbooking is all about?
I had these all cropped and up close like the first one, but apparently Photobucket had other ideas....sorry! I really am trying to do better with the layout pics. I probably won't be posting WOYWW tomorrow....the desk is pretty boring right now since everything was packed from my crop day at my friend's Sunday, but we will see. Hopefully the next time you see Chicago layouts, it will be the book in it's entirety! I did not mat near as many pictures as I normally do in this book. For you scrappers out there.....do you mat the photos in your layouts or not? Inquiring minds want to know. The pictures for my next book - 245 to be exact, are sorted and the paper pad that I have been dying to work with, K& Company Que Sera Sera is purchased - bring it on! Hope you are having a great week!
