Still in the middle of this heat wave! Its only 10am, and its 92 out, and feels like 104! What is going on??? And I just read a story about the poor animals here in the midwest zoos that are really feeling the heat, I always feel terrible for animals, because they can't go out and buy themselves ac!
I do have the luxury of ac, but today, I have to go outside. Somebody forgot his wallet, and doesn't have enough gas in his car to make it home! So, I will be going on an adventure to drop off his credit card.
In other exciting news, my "smash books" are coming today! So, after my nap (I'm sure I'll need a nap, I got up way to early today) I'm going to start working on those!
But, I still have two more layouts to share!
Today's layout features pictures from our first week in Chicago. (And my favorite American Crafts Craft Fair Midge Gathermore, aka the house paper, that I'm loving right now!)
I used a sketch from Scrapbooks, Etc. for inspiration. I loved this sketch because I could add a ton of pictures, and I had tons and tons and tons from our first week!
First, I layered all the different colored papers for the mat:
Then, I added all of my pictures:
And my embellishments (including that fabulous paper!):
And that's all there is to it :)
