i went . . . i scrap layout
April 28, 2011
In 2010 "i went to Paris" . . .
We went to so many lovely places last year, Wilson's Prom, The Grampians, Foster, the goldfield areas, Europe!
In the Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter mini catalogue is this totally gorgeous Designer Series Paper called "Sweet Stitches". It's all in lovely, lolly colours and is bright and retro with a fun home-made feel about it. I couldn't help but choose the Daffodil Delight sheet full of apron prints to go with my "Cheese" photo from a sunny market in Paris!
I love that on the day, I was wearing a shirt that matched our Concord Crush edged ribbon and that in my collection I was able to find a few buttons and bits and pieces which also co-ordinated.
On this layout, you can see the copper (or is it bronze) paint that I have sponged around the edges. This matches with the brushed copper strip which is on all nine of my layouts and also on the facing journalling pages, to tie the whole album together.
And of course, what layout about Paris would be complete without at least one Eiffel Tower (and since I have several in my collection, it was about time I used one!!).
Well, this was all very cheesy and fun! See you soon!
