Have you ever gone through your pile of UNUSED SASH and wondered, "What was I thinking when I bought that".....Then years later you create a card or layout and your UNUSED STASH is the perfect accent or DP. Nothing beats that feeling...........

Summer is my favorite season. Living in Chicago you never know when the nice summer days will end. Usually we have a few good weeks, then the high humidy, heat index and ozone warnings strike. This week has been perfect, So on a perfect holiday weekend we Chicago folks head down to beautiful Lake Michigan.
I spent my Friday at Navy Pier, Millenium Park and of course, The Taste of Chicago, I am so sunburn but it was well worth it. It was a special family day with my daughter and mother.
For a day at Lake Michigan the only appropriate foot wear is FLIP FLOPS! I love the sand on my feet.
