It has been a very difficult couple of weeks with all the terrorist attacks in Paris, Mali, Egypt and other areas. My thoughts go out to all those that have been affected by the terrorist attack and I hope these photos on this layout reminds people of the beauty in the world.
It was very poignant for me as I had just been going over photos that my daughter had taken when she went on a trip to Europe a couple of years ago. I did a card a few weeks ago featuring a French themed Nevermore card to practice for making this layout. My daughter has taken some amazing photos of Paris and the Eiffel Tower and Paris at night and they deserved to be showcased. The chandelier and flourish under the Eiffel Tower was cut from the Artiste cartridge and the Artbooking cartridge respectively, and then I stamped them with versamark ink and heat embossed with silver Ranger embossing powder. The chandelier was finished with some clear sparkles. I used Cricut Craftroom to size the Eiffel Tower to fit onto the layout and the flourish square is cut from the Artiste cartridge (page 60) with the centre kept for the frame. I didn’t have enough photos for the 5th square so I cut a bird cage from a Couture Creations die to complete the French theme. I am happy with this and got some more Paris photos to scrap at some stage.
