Julia & Taylor

To keep up the celebrations - we're having another blog hop!! Come hop around with us "in Paris" this week with a New Release Blog Hop!! Check out the Little Miss Muffet Challenges Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog for all the details and prizes!!

You should have arrived here from the talented SHIRLEY!
However, if you get lost along the way you can see the complete list HERE.

Have you heard the big news? Whimsy, Make it Crafty and Little Miss Muffet Stamps have come together to give you a little romance in Paris this Valentine season! You can join the festivities and read all about it on the ThreeCompaniesTeamUp blog. But wait... have you heard the really big news?! Little Miss Muffet Stamps has now released images in RUBBER! That's right - so pop on over HERE to get your rubber fix. :D

My project uses several images from this release to create this scene. From Little Miss Muffet Stamps, I have used Julia, Taylor, Agent Éclair Dropping and Naw the Gargoyle. Then from Make it Crafty I used a bridge scene that Zoe put together using Paris Elements and Eiffel Tower, plus a whole bunch of chippies, N3 Rustic Frame, Flower Leaf Swirls and Swirly Corners.

The sentiment stamp is Élégance Élémentaire frm Stampin' Up! and translated would be "Happy Birthday." I used Whimsy's cordinating Shapeology Die, Notables 3, which coordinates with the chippie so nicely! The rest of the journal page is deocrated with oddds and ends from my stash - pearls, rhinestones and various ribbons.
