I Love Paris

I Love Paris collage 

My first trip to Paris was over 6 years ago and I've never done a thing to commemorate the experience. (To be fair to myself, I did make a memory book for my grandson after we went there 2 years ago, but nothing for me!) When I saw the Paper Crafter's Corner inspiration piece (see below) for this week, I just knew what I had to do! I usually change a challenge piece to suit my own style and inspiration, but I wanted to keep this one just the same.

The only thing I knew I wanted to use for sure was the photo of the Eiffel Tower. I had saved many maps and brochures, so I used some of them as torn paper pieces. I meant to keep the background just maps and words in very light shades, but those colorful pieces kept sneaking in! My heart didn't really stand out, so I outlined it with Stickles Turquoise and Gold. The alphas are We R Memory Keepers from the Jet Set collection, and the Love medallion was something I just had - don't know where it came from. I had lots of fun doing this, but it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be!


  1. omggggg this is awesome and so on point!!!!

  2. Wow! You took it literally, Margaret!! Great job!

    1. Yes, I loved it just how it was, so I did the same - unusual for me.

  3. I do prefer London, but. . .you did an amazing job lifting this project! I'm sure it wasn't as easy as it may look. Lots of bits and pieces to consider! Superb!

  4. Thanks, Suzi! I just took a look at your blog and just love the Blessings card - so endearing. You are lucky to have that special someone to explore the world with.
