CHA Summer is in full swing in Chicago and we just had to share some of our fun adventures! This year we decided it would be a lot of fun to have an old fashioned photo booth so that anyone who visits us can get a classic vintage-inspired photo taken! We love to go all out at CHA with lots of lavish decorations, fun events, costumes and tons of inspiration. Here are some great pictures from this summer's CHA Summer extravaganza!

Next we have some stunning layouts to share with you from Alberto Juarez and Gloria Stengel. Both of these lovely layouts feature our elegant collection A Ladies' Diary. This first LO is by Alberto and it shows some fabulous ways to combine A Ladies' Diary with lots of gorgeous Graphic 45 Staples. Alberto did an amazing job of layering lots of Graphic 45 Flower Staples as well as Metal Butterflies, Metal Tags, Metal Clothespins, Metal Hinges and Metal Brad Staples. He also used some wonderful Want to Scrap bling and May Arts ribbons to create a timeless LO that is simply exquisite!

Next we have another classic layout featuring A Ladies' Diary. This one was created by the amazing Gloria Stengel and it definitely captures the essence of this incredible collection. Gloria layered different paper patterns and colors to give this LO an enchanting look. She also added beautiful embellishments like the new Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Key Holes and Ornate Metal Keys! Here is what Gloria had to say about this wonderful work of art!

"This photo of my husband's great aunt's wedding, from 1934, is perfect with A Ladies' Diary Collection. The brown tones of the photo work so well with the soft pastels of the paper. I added a vintage doily and some lace, plus small flower "bouquets" to continue the wedding theme." -Gloria Stengel
