Wow - sounds like we could exchange iPods for a week and not notice a difference. Love your mix! Especially The Kooks, they just make me happy with their adorable accents. Have a good day!

Ooooh, I'm so old school. I'm not sure you'd like any of my tunes! Besides, I'm also a country lovah! LOL But regardless, I actually like to scrap to NO music! I find that it can be distracting often. But some of the most recent uploads to my itunes have included:
Annie Lenox - Train in Vain
David Cook - anything available
Goo Goo Dolls - Iris
Carrie Underwood - My Last Name
Leanna Rimes - Nothing Better To Do

Really like Duffy, Coldplay, The Fray, Louis Armstrong, Amy Winehouse (I know...), The Killers, soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou, Poncho Sanchez, anything sort of 'punkish' from the early '8Os, Joe Jackson, Billie Holiday, U2, Dave Mathews...

I'm new to Studio Calico. The June 2008 kit is what caught my eye and got me inspired! I completed some layouts using my kit and the end results? I'm proud of myself! But, I really think it's all the scrappy goodness that Studio Calico provided for me! I truly enjoyed all the pics from CHA Chicago you posted, thank you for making me feel that I was kinda there! Can't wait for my August kit and Add-On sneeky peeks!
