The Windy City

Ah, Chicago.  CHA.  Friends.  The Disney World of Scrapbooking!  I am still talking about it.  Scrapping about it to be exact!  This was the first year where we actually made some time to go into the amazing city of Chicago.

I am not a city girl by any means.  It is all overwhelming to me.  But with the comfort of my friends, I had a blast exploring.  The city is quite clean and has so many beautiful sites!  We spent a part of our day at Navy Pier.  It must have been something to watch all of us with our cameras...snapping away. 

We even had a photo shoot where we took headshots.  My non-scrappy friends make fun of me for taking self-portraits, but it is a necessary thing in the scrappy world?  right? (please don't tell me it is just me!).  The layout with those shots are making their way to a layout near you!

Here is the layout I created to help me remember our city adventure!

I used Cosmo Cricket here!  I really adore their chipboard elements...totally inspires layout after layout!

I have only been back to work for 3 weeks and I am already craving a vacation.  I adore what I do and love the kids.  It is just so difficult balancing family, home and work.  Stretches me thin.

But oh well.  Such is life, right.
At least I will always have Chicago...
