I really, really HAD to do this challenge. You see. I like Paris. A lot. I've been very fortunate to have visited twice. I want to go back! AND I have a little step grandie who shares my passion. I hope she gets to experience Paris's magic at some stage in her life.
Speaking of stages.....last Christmas when she was down, we staged a bit of a Paris-o-phile photo shoot.
See, sometimes the Universe collides and a page is born.
Sorry...waxing lyrical....but Paris will do that to you!!!
The inspiration photo. I took the messy paper layers, the Eiffel tower and went to town:
This is my page:
Throw into that mix the fact I mentioned to my scrappy mate, Sandra, that I really HATE scrapping with red.
I find it quite hard. That this year I intended to overcome the Red block.
So she kindly [???!!!] sent me a RAK filled with - you guessed it - RED STUFF!!!
Add into the mix that Dolly B & I also share a Paris 'amore' ....& SHE had given me some GORGEOUS Eiffel tower bits.
I used the packaging that Sandra sent & made it into my journaling tag!!!
Add in to THAT my scrappy friend, Marie-Christine - who actually IS French - had also sent me a lovely Kraft Eiffel tower embellie.......
That lovely chippy swirl is from Dusty Attic; the camera, a competition win from Papercut Labs, is Maya Road.
Thanks for looking! And THANKS Pixels and Paper for this challenge *winks*
