CHA Blues & a new Layout

I've got the blues. The CHA bluessssss.... My trip to Chicago for the Craft & Hobby Association (CHA) show fell through at the last minute. And no trip for me makes me a pretty darn sad girl. I've been pouting about it most of the day, even had to call up poor Shannon on the road and bother her (or more accurately to give her someone to blame if she got lost ;)). So I've been trying to keep busy and keep my mind off of it, but not doing the best job.

My first step to consoling myself was to post this new layout I did for BasicGrey that WILL be at the show even if I will not. I can't help it. This layout just m
akes me smile when I see it. That's my ham of a Carson cheesing it up for his mama. Love that face. Love that boy. And I admit. It helped. For a minute.Then I ran errands. Usually getting out of the house for a few helps pick up drooping spirits. Not so much today, but better than sitting at home, right? And tonight, I got a surprise call for one of my fave layouts by ST (Scrapbook Trends) for their November issue (when I had submitted it for OCTOBER!). Ok, not so bad. Until I remember that my friends are all shopping on Michigan Ave right now without me. Buy me something cute, girls....there are scrapstores on Michigan Ave, right?? ;)

Sorry to hear that it fell thru for you. I love the adorable lo though. I wish Drew would stop making that cheesy grin for me. They all tease that I taught him to scrunch up his face when I take pics of him.

Your layout is awesome -- sorry you didn't make it to CHA, though. I know that it can be a bummer when you've been looking forward to it. Have a great day and weekend (maybe something really cool will happen to make up for CHA)!
