You'll lose your blues in...

Chicago! 

It is my all time favorite large city.  I've been to just a few... Seattle, Vancouver BC, New Orleans, San Antonio, L.A.  Out of all those Chicago is my favorite.  Why?  Not sure I can think of one specific reason.  I just love the architecture, the heartbeat, the landscape, the lake, the food, the people.  Could do without the humidity but that's such a tiny detail to me! 

I got to play with some Socialite from Bella Blvd recently.  Got my projects for pub finished and played with scraps.  Of course, I had to dedicate a layout to Chicago.  The lyrics are from the song Chicago by Frank Sinatra.  This was also inspired by a challenge given at ScrapStreet for our recent Birthday Beverage Crop!
