let's try this again...chicago scrapbook.

Chase got back from camp today, and I was able to take pictures of my finished scrapbook. I would say these last two pages were really inspired by Elise Blaha's blog. I love the way her mini books are 'true' scrapbooks. She is always adding things from stores, restaurants, etc.

So check it out:
These pages are my favorite. I think if I ever have this out of display these will be my choice.
And here is the finished look:
I did come up with one little trip while I was making this. On each day, I made a little "day __" tab. I didn't have any clear cardstock, so I just took one of PTI clear boxes that they ship their stamps in, and it worked great!

I think I'm about to go wake up my sleeping husband. He's been out for about 4 hours now! I think he was exhausted.

Michael was exhausted too... I don't think Michael will be asking me to go camping in a tent anytime soon! :-) Your book looks great! I want to see it in person!

Luh-ove your scrapbook! I also love how you incorporated Elsie's style of literally using the tickets, maps, etc. That is how I used to scrapbook as a youngster and that is totally what makes the scrapbook. I miss doing that and you have inspired me to do this for a trip I am taking next week to San Fran!!

Question- what did you use for the front and back of the album? The part that is painted blue...
