My stepson had a conference to attend in Chicago for 3 days so the family drove up with him and found some time for time together and fun out in the big city before coming home.   My daughter-in-law was raised in Chicago so she is always ready for a trip back "home"

The perfect sketch for these pictures was the new June sketch challenge #178 at  "SKETCH N SCRAP"   I had a picture of all the family together and then just the one of David and Nikki so worked out great.   Plus I've been holding on to this single sheet of paper of the city scape for awhile now and I thought it worked great here with the city skyline in the background of their pictures.
So all came together well.   Pulled out a sheet for the full background paper from an old stack and then the other papers were from my scraps, even the card stock that I matted them in were from scraps.   Always good to use some of them up.

Here is the link for  "SKETCH N SCRAP"  and the sketch #178 that I used.
