Welcome to the final stop on the My Creative Time April Release Blog Hop. I have had SO much fun this week as the guest designer and I hope you have enjoyed some of the projects I've had to share with you as well. Thanks SO much to Emma for letting me join in. You should have arrived at my blog from Veronica's blog but if not make sure to head back to Emma's blog and get the full hop in. I know there are fabulous projects at every stop, you won't want to miss a thing.
I have two projects for you today! Like I mentioned yesterday I'm totally thrilled and excited about the Springtime in Paris set and couldn't wait to scrap my first day in PARIS now that I have the perfect set. There I am as fresh as a daisy, LOL, after a 3 layover flight to Paris, France. The president (adult leader) of my mission came and picked us up from the Charles de Gaulle airport and we stopped and saw a few sights. We went to Trocadero, the perfect spot to get a full shot of le tour eiffel (the Eiffel Tower). We also got pictures with the famous Notre Dame Cathedral and the Seine river in the background. And although I don't have a picture of it, I don't know if I've ever been quite as scared for my life as I was when we drove down the Champs-Ellysees and onto the round-about that circles the Arc de Triomphe. There are 10 or more streets that empty into/off of that round-about and cars were going in, out and around it at least 6 cars deep. It was SCARY. That is one experience I will pass on next time I go to France :). Anyway, sorry to keep you, I couldn't help but reminisce a tiny bit.
Here is my layout:
The vines, designs (french damask), French sentiments, Eiffel Tower and coordinating die all come in the Springtime in Paris set. For my date at the bottom I used the die and alphabet stamps from Just Simply Live. My Bienvenue a Paris (Welcome to Paris) sign is stamped on the Vintage Stitched Label Dies and each of my pictures was cut out using the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die.
My last quick project is a gift tag. I got this awesome bottle of Sweet on Paris body-wash from Bath and Body Works and I wanted to make up a little thank you gift tag for it.
I cut out the Eiffel Tower die, from Springtime in Paris, on sturdy white cardstock and then I stamped it with the coordinating Eiffel Tower stamp and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I inked it up with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I added an eyelet at the top and stamped the Merci (thank you) sentiment to one of the Chunky Jar Accessories die cuts and attached it to the side of the Eiffel Tower. I think it turned out pretty cute and it took very little time at all.
