June Arrivals and Offerings

I am always running behind these days. I am hoping to have one of those "Lazy Dazy Summers",
where I can sit back and enjoy the things I love most in life. I would like all of you to respond here on the blog and tell me what are the things you enjoy most in life. Then go and scrap it! Bring in your layout or scan it and e-mail it to us and, with your permission I'll post them on our blog throughout the summer months. Please respond first. This will help inspire others to reflect on what they want out of this summer too. I will post my own layout next week and tell you about what I hope to enjoy this summer.

Now on to the NEW arrivals at Lorraine's..........

  1. Looks like a great line up ahead for classes!

    What I like about this summer are the visitors that will be coming to Chicago...most I haven't seen in years! So spending time with family & friends (all are overseas) is what I will enjoy :0)
