Good morning and welcome to the finale of my mini album. This little labor of love was so much fun to make and I've enjoyed all of your sweet comments! I am a big fan of all things Parisian so it went together fairly quickly and I look forward to our trip next year. Yes, we still have a ways to go as the youngest graduates in 2013 but my little album, sitting on the shelf above my desk, will serve as a reminder of what is to come until then. :)
I created the above page with MME dp's and the vintage shoe, paper flower, text die cut & pretty ribbon wrap this one up. I did add an antique pearl swirl for a little pizzazz and I hope to include a photo which reflects the current Parisian couture on this page. Here's another page...
This page is pretty simple and I kept it low-key with a few die cut embellishments, a stamped key image and ribbon which I used to frame the page. Next up is the inside of the front cover of my mini album...
The paper and die cuts are from the Destinations Scrapbooking Kit by Paper Studio and I did a little more "faux" stitching with my Zig Writer pen. I am not one to sew but love the look on cards and this technique works for me. ;) Okay, last page is the inside back cover...
and the sentiment Beaucoup D'Amour, meaning "lots of love, always" seems the perfect way to end. The die cut clock is reflective of our "future" time spent in Paris and the beautiful City of Lights.
Thanks for hanging in there over the past few days with this project and I hope all of you have a wonderful fun filled weekend.!
