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!
