Happy Mother's Day and La Seine Layout

Happy Mother's Day!!!!!




To all  my crafty friends



Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day



..........

....


La Seine

My layout for

Scrap Our Stash

Stash challenge #3 - patterned paper party



the challenge is to use 3 or more patterned paper from your stash



and rubons, I am glad to have these left-overs in my stash



I love the "see-through" of the rubons


lots of gesso, lots of mist on old book pages


a bit of stamping too




sharing more Paris picture from my last trip

La Seine



strolling by the Seine, falling in love with Paris... all over again





I just love these fun bouquinistes along the Seine









Spring time in Paris

It was late March, early April, but still..... brrrrrrrrrr.......

love♥LOVE♥looooooooooooove the LO and love even more that you showed the steps, which papers are which, where the rubs are, etc; b/c the "whole" of it was so cohesive and beautiful that one didn't appreciate all the WORK the brilliant designer (that'd be YOU!) did to get there! soooo cool to see!!! (ps: trying not to be UBER-jealous of the amazing paris trip but then you guys soooo deserved that "revenge" i cannot possibly begrudge your revelling in every minute!!!) ♥
