Paris Layout

Hello my friends...

Remember the cartridge I borrowed to make the invitations the other day????  Check out that story HERE.

Well... I used it for the invitations, and even cut some shapes for future use...  and I am very grateful of the person who let me use it for a while.  She had told me she had bought this cartridge to make an album for her mom, about a trip to Europe but that she was not in a hurry to start it. 

As a token of appreciation I made her a layout so she can start the album.  I really don't know what her favorite style is and don't even know what techniques or materials she prefers to use but I decided that I just was going to make a page putting my heart on it because I just felt I should do something.

So, I decided to make it about Paris, since Eiffel Tower is the main reason I borrowed the cartridge in the first place...

I used the Destinations Cricut cartridge for the title featuring the famous tower...  I also used a doilly and a hand made flower.  I actually have several of these organza blue flowers left from a SWAP.  I made quite a few and could not exchange all of them...  You can know more about how to make them HERE.

I added lots of paper elements and different colors.  Since I don't know what photo she is going to end up using in the layout, I want to make sure most photos will look fine in this page, but keeping some coordination and overall unified look. 

I added more doilly presence for the romantic look this city, Paris, denotes... and birds, handwriting stamped images, washi tapes, and lots of ink and distressing in every corner.

This is how the layout looks as a whole page:

I wanted to see how it would look with a photo so I used a personal photo placed for position only to visualize the final product...  The only difference is that this photo was taken in Caguas, Puerto Rico... not Paris!  LOL!!!

Thank you my friends for stopping by and leaving me your comments... I really enjoy them a lot...

Have a great week!!!!!
