I didn’t realize it was August until I peeked at the calendar and realized it was time to post Imaginisce‘s monthly sketch. I was in charge of creating a sketch for the month, so I want to see all of you creating with this sketch:
I decided to create a layout using Birthday Bash. Here’s my take on the above sketch:

On a completely different note, I’m still recovering from the craziness of CHA. However, I actually had the chance to sit down and create three layouts yesterday. I also uploaded the rest of the photos from the show. Here are some pictures with some wonderful and talented gals:
That night, a group of us gals went out to get dessert. Yum! I ordered a banana creme pie. Unfortunately, I only had room for a third of it, but it was mighty delicious ! …and over dinner, I learned a couple of things from Jing-Jing. (1) There’s a difference between “sour” and “tart”. I know, it’s a no-brainer, but I honestly thought it was synonymous. (2) Minnesota is apparently boring. 😉
Gloria and I made it out to the city one more time before we had to leave Chicago. It was one of the best parts of the trip. We walked the Magnificent Mile and explored Navy Pier. …and it was my first time to get on a ferris wheel! I was scared at first, but I realized that it was neat to be that high up.
I wasn’t scared waiting in line, but then I looked up at the ferris wheel. Here’s what I was looking at from below:
…so I pretended that I wasn’t nervous at all, even though my anxiety disorder started to kick in. 😉
Pretty neat, huh?! I’m surprised that I actually had the nerve to give it a try. Actually, I’m proud of myself for trying something I normally would have said “OH HECK NO” to. I probably should have taken more photos from up top, but I was holding on for dear life, haha! 😉
I have winners to the CHA giveaways! The lucky winners are…
Please shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prizes. Thanks to everyone else for playing. Stay tuned for future giveaways.
Lastly, I wanted to share one of the three layouts that I worked on yesterday. Can you believe I actually used some Basic Grey paper?! It’s not very typical of me, so when I finished this one, I was really impressed at myself, hehe. 😉
As for this upcoming week, I plan on getting a handful of projects done before the weekend. …so if you enjoy looking at my work, check back later in the week for loads of inspiration.
PS: If I haven’t been by your blog in a while, please forgive me. As you know, I’ve been quite a busy girl this summer. I plan on trying to catch up some time this week. In the mean time, keep bloggin’!
