The Louvre.

I am having a purge of my stash and I am feeling a lot more positive about scrapbooking because of it. I'm amazed at what rubbish I have accumulated over the years with the idea of 'it might come in  handy' or 'what a bargain this sale item is'! 
I am determined to be less of a hoarder and make a huge effort to 'use it or lose it'!
Today I have a  double page to share with you using just Heidi Swapp Hello Today paper and a stencil that matches the line.

The photo's are from a day out in Paris at the end of our France/Switzerland holiday last year.
We couldn't possible see all there is to see in a day so when we stopped off at The Louvre we just had enough time to walk through the grounds (and take photo's of course!).

On the left side of the double layout you can see the pattern from the stencil that I used. I only wanted a subtle effect to give a bit of interest to the 'white space'. 

In front of these glass pyramids there are posts for you to stand on so that you can take awesome photo's!

A few close up's of the embellishing.

The obligatory fussy cut flower!

I enjoyed stitching a heart to make this circle more interesting!

I still have a few layouts to share with you but I will have to post them when I get some more spare time.
Hope you are enjoying your summer so far, the school holidays started on Friday so I have less time to myself now but at least there are no school runs for a while.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I love Paris. Found myself sighing while looking at your pictures, they take me right back there. Good luck with the purge. I'm trying to do the same thing. If I haven't used an item in three or four years then I'm probably not going to, but it's hard to let go.

  2. I'm trying to use stuff up too- to make space to buy more! a lovely fun page, i'm loving the background stencil!

  3. Another amazing two page layout!! LOVE the colors you chose!!
