Fun In Chi-Town



My daughter and son-in-law drove from their home in mid Missouri to Chicago for a long weekend visiting with old friends they had in Washington DC before they both moved.   To Missouri for my daughter and to Hawaii for their friends.   But when they were coming to the mainland for a wedding Chicago they decided to go see them again.
They have a great back story.  My daughter Leslie and Eileen met in Africa while on a 2 week trip with other college students for research.    Eileen was living in DC for work a year later and soon after that my daughter moved to DC for work so they got together again there.   Eileen rented a room in a boarding house and wanted Leslie to meet a friend of hers that she new from college in upstate NY and also had a room where she did.   They all got together and 2 weeks later Leslie and Jason were dating and then 2 years later they got married in DC and of course Eileen was a big part of the wedding since she introduced them.    So they have been friends all over the US and out of the country.    So where ever they go to be together they have a great time.

I am entering this at the "SCRAP OUR STASH" challenge blog.   with the book inspired challenge.
"Oh the Places We Will Go"   pretty well describes Leslie and that she drove 6 hours to meet an old friend for 3 days.   Along with the book title theme you needed to use 5 different patterned papers and at least one round embellishment.  I have 5 different paper patterns and 2 round flair buttons.

Check it out and get your layout in.   "SCRAP OUR STASH"
