Ooh La La!!


My LSS just got a big Kaisercraft order. Although the 'Bonjour' collection has been out for a little while I couldn't resist the precious pastel shabby chic colours & the butterfly & Eiffel tower motiffs were just too cute! I was lucky enough to travel to France in 1998. The views from the top of the Eiffel tower are so incredible!! I would LUV to go back one day!

I decided to have a crack at the Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch Februray #1 for the first time & combined this challenge with the new word challenge over at Bird is the Word. This is the sketch
And my take on the sketch
I cut out the fram on the specialty paper & fussy cut around the Eiffel tower

The new word at BITW is 'journey' which I used in the title 'Enjoy the journey'. I have used Prima alphas

The pink roses are Kaisercraft. The fern leaves are Green Tara which I white washed then added some fine glitter. I got these both at my LSS Scrapbook Sinners

I have created lots of different layers using different patterned paper (all Bonjour collection) & using lace & trims. The die cut is from a MFT die scalloped circle

Thanks for looking!
