Okay, with all that fun business out of the way, 
let's move on to my project. 

I had the pleasure of using the Passport to Paris Kit:

Here's the layout I created:

Originally, I had different photos in mind for this layout. 
Then the fire happened at the Notre Dame Cathedral,
so I thought these photos would be more appropriate.
I took these photos when I was in Paris 4 years ago.
I also have some beautiful photos of the interior of the cathedral,
and of the gorgeous ceiling,
but these photos were perfect with the coloring of the kit.

I distressed all the edges of the papers with both tool and ink.
I added stenciling to the peach colored background cardstock,
using the Mini Carte Postale Stencil from TCW.

Then I added some fun stamping around the page,
using the gorgeous Vintage Paris stamp set from Cavallini.
There's even a Notre Dame Cathedral stamp.

I punched a hole in this tag and added some string.
I added a date stamp, and wrote in the date.
I had the month and year but was going to check on the day,
so I'll add that when I know it.

The elements in this kit made it so easy to put this page together.
There was lots more that I didn't add too!

What will you create if you win the Passport to Paris?
Leave a comment and you might be the one to win it!

A wonderful tribute to Notre Dame Nancy, I like the idea you have made a hybrid page with lovely details, I usually just do digital.

How wonderful you had a chance to see the cathedral in all its glory, sadly we only had a quick visit to Paris and just saw all the tourist buildings in a blur, hoping we would visit and see them all again, shows we should do things when we have the chance.

Nancy I love what you created. It is so heartbreaking what happened to the Notre Dame Cathedral. I am about half French and have always wanted to go to Paris but will probably never get there. Two of my children went to Paris about 14 years ago and I have beeen obsessed with it ever since. I love Love LOVE this kit and what you have done with it. Thank you for the opportunity to win it :) Hugs...Janie

Great layouts! I would love to go to Paris one day and if I won the passport to Paris kit I would create something to do with Eiffel Tower.

Kim said...

I love your creation. I went to Paris a couple years ago and I would create something with Sainte Chapelle. I love those tall stained glass windows!

Ruthie said...

Love your layout!! I'll probably either make a passport card or use it for a mini flip book! TFS!

Sandy said...
