Finally, my French inspired layout....

For the Postcards of the world comp over at Scrapboutique
(see post below).  I think the amount of time I spent on this, would have to be a record for me - and I admit that I am a slow scrapper - but this one I just kept fiddling & procrastinating...and changing my mind *rolls eyes*....trying to get things "just right".  I originally had probably close to double the amount of product pulled out of my stash....wanting to use all these yummy bits & pieces - but I finally realised there was just wayyy too much! and had to put some back....LOL
I am quite happy with the finished LO - although I'm wondering if it's looking more like an Italian gilato shop than the postcard in the South of France???....LOL (just kidding!)

I've had a wonderful scrappy week, so I have a few more LO's to share....

Using Bon's April girl kit

And another using Bon's April boy kit.
I used my new Tim Holtz Gadget Gears die in my cuttlebug to make the  cogs at the bottom, I am loving that die!!!  The black cog is actually cut out of felt & it cut through it so easily - just like it was paper!  I can see that I will be getting a lot of use out of this die :)

Well, it's almost the end of another month *sigh*.....but that means a whole new month of fun new challenges are just around the corner .....can't wait!!!

Thanks for dropping by & happy scrapping :)
