Oh, back in the midwest…  Some people call Ohio the midwest but I’m not so sure about that.  The people are nice there. 🙂  I’ve been to Wisconsin several times in the past…mostly with Dean Foods.  I did go rock climbing and hiking in Devil’s Lake a long, long time ago.  I lived in Rockford, IL for several years while working for Dean’s.  Rockford is 10 minutes from the Wisconsin border.


I drove up because the flights were astronomical in price!  I enjoyed the drive and listened to Janet Evanovich’s “Metro Girl” on CD.  You can read an exerpt here.  Her books are just plain fun.  There’s usually a mystery to chase down but the characters will make you laugh.  I caught myself laughing out-loud several times.  Ugh, I have heartburn from all the crappy food I ate.  Why is it as soon as I get in a car…it’s time to eat? 


It brought back memories driving through Chicago.  Jenn, I thought of you when I drove past Diversey.  Too bad I didn’t go far enough west to stop at Woodfield Mall or IKEA.  It’s been a while since I’ve been up this way.  Anyone want to make a shopping trip to Chicago sometime soon? 


Oh, by the way if you’re ever in Wisconsin, try the fried cheddar cheese curds!  Yum!


Enough reminiscing…I thought I’d share a layout or two.

Speaking of the midwest and reminiscing.  This is an old layout…no JB Soup paper here.  Just a layout of Grandpa and Leah taking a walk on the farm in Indiana.  There’s that kraft paper again!

This is another old layout.  If you’re ever looking for something to do with all those “left-over” letters…try this.

I will have lots of fun stuff to post this week.  I’ve been gathering more samples of cards and layouts from friends and fellow scrappers.  I’ll be posting more this week!
