Chicago Card {Scrapbook Layout}

Happy Thursday!

We are back in New York!!! I am so so excited to finally be living back home.

It has been way way too long since we've been around real fall weather. AJ and I are taking full advantage of the beautiful fall weather on the east end of Long Island - walking every morning, enjoying the vineyards, and hanging out outside every chance we get!

I brought my scrapbook things with me, but with the sun out every day this week, I haven't been inside much to use it!

But, I do have this layout made over the summer about my other favorite place to live - Chicago!

One of my favorite things about living in Chicago was using the CTA to go everywhere. I loved my Chicago Card, and when we moved, I didn't know what to do with it. But I didn't want to throw it out, so I held on to it. And eventually decided to make a layout with the card - but I didn't have any pictures to go with it.


Then I had a really hard time because the colors on the card were pretty weird, and I had trouble finding papers that worked with it. I ended up printing out a map of the CTA train and bus system, and using it as a center for my layout. I'm happy with how it turned out, and I'm glad I documented that part of my life!

Well, I'm off to shower and get ready for more exploring the island out here! What are you up to this week?

I love how this layout came together. I am always intrigued when people are able to use maps in their layouts. I am seriously considering trying to use one when documenting our Universal Studios trio in the Spring. So glad you guys are home and with family!

Glad you made it there safely!
Unfortunately I can't see your photo :(
