I Have Visited France!!

Scrapboutique is running a wonderful competition at the world. The Postcard competition has us travelling around the world, visiting beautiful countries and scrapping layouts inspired by them.
Last week, we visited France - and this is the Postcard we received for inspiration.

Here is my layout - an older photo of Connor (before he had is curls cut off "sigh") enjoying some flowers.
I used the stunning Prima Shabby Chic Range - yet another beautiful range from Prima this year. Can you tell I'm just a wee bit addicted to Prima atm?? LOL!

I did lots of fussy cutting, and had loads of fun playing with flowers. I have WAY too many flowers - especially for someone who mainly scraps boy layouts, lol, so I am making a concerted effort to use them up!

Don't you love these birdies?? I cut them out from a Shabby Chic paper - they are so sweet!! If you can catch a glimpse of the fence, I painted it in Distress Paint, Picket Fence, and inked it in some Distress Ink - AntiqueLinen. I then wove a Prima vine in amongst the pickets, to give a shabby sort of look to the fence.

I had loads of fun with this layout - it's not often I can play with so many pretties, so I live it up when I can!! Hehe!

Thanks for popping by :0)
