Nonsense Give-a-way

I fell in love with the new We R Memory Keepers CHA Summer '08 releases while doing make n takes at the booth this past weekend.
On Friday, we used the new 'Nonsense' line and some of the Raw Goods chipboard recipe box dividers. I kept telling people that they make great mini albums with a few punches from the Crop-a-dile. Soo.....I grabbed some after the make n take to bring home and make my own album and give some away to you!!!

I have 6 'mini' Nonsense kits to give-a-way. Just leave a post in the comments section and I will draw 6 names using the random number generator on August 1st.
Here's the mini album I made from our trip to downtown Chicago the day before CHA. Too much fun with some great girls!




1st Summer, Sherry and I took the train down to the Sears Tower then I took them on a misguided tour of downtown. I don't think they even noticed, they chatted it up while I misread the map.
We had to finally take Summer back to the train so she could get back to Rosemont for a meeting. Sherry and I continued on (in the right direction) to Harry Caray's for dinner with Paula, Emily, Sarah and Mel.
After dinner, we walked back to the train for our exit from the city. Along the way were MANY photos taken and side splitting bouts of laughter.
The train ride seemed to take longer going back than it did coming down but, we made it back safe and sound and ready for a good nights sleep.

So many more stories and almost no more photos. Sadly, this was the only day I took my camera out.

I will see if I can find more from other people's blogs and 'borrow' them for my blog. ;)
more to come later...

Remember to leave a comment for the give-a-way!!!
