Bienvenue a Paris - a Counterfeit Kit Club page

Well I was going to save my Counterfeit Kit for April for this upcoming Saturday when I'm attending an all day crop, but I just couldn't wait! Once I decided how to use my kit, the ideas started flowing. Who am I to stop creativity?

So I created the entrance to Paris page for my scrapbook with my Counterfeit Kit, Les Voyageurs.

I mean, who could not love a city who welcomes you with a sunset like this?! Paris was always my dream vacation, and it came true in 2011 when my husband and I traveled to France, among Ireland and Spain. It was everything I had imagined (except maybe a bit more walking...), and we both LOVED the city. I definitely want to return and take my kids someday (Disneyland Paris, anyone?).

Here are a few details:

I used my Cricut to write the type on the cardstock. I then just clustered a few groupings of embellishments and cut a decorative border from my Cricut as background to the photo.

Grey cardstock - Craftsmith by Michaels
