Today I also managed to finally get my hands on my holiday related stash that I ordered from America. I was finding it very hard to find specific Paris related items, so placed an order with Scrap Your Trip. Took advantage and got some lovely Disney bits too. Not seen any of them here so I'm happy. Only downside I ended up with a customs charge on this order meaning that I didn't save as much as I could have done. Oh well. I rarely order from the US now so it's not so bad. (I guess lol.)

Seeing the Eiffel Tower up close was better than I thought. I hate high things, but more so if I am up on it looking down. I absolutely love all the skyscrapers in New York though and have been up high on a couple of them. I don't think I could have gone even to the first floor of the Eiffel Tower though. Too open and too much ground to see. (I hate walking along the pier over the sea in Brighton, have to walk along each plank and walk in a very wobbly fashion lol.)

Yay I can get the pics to load today. I had visions of having to start all over again.
This LO is one I did for the monthly challenge on CD. As with the card challenge only a couple of us have entered. This was a recipe to follow and the original was by Mel (as in Jill and Mel - or Mel and Jill - lol) from ATDML. The only thing with mine was the flash on the photo showed up and I haven't got round to taking a new photo yet.
C/S from Papermania, Papers and sticky alphabet from Doodlebug, Memory Mates buttons - strawberries and flower, and flower Imaginisce - for peeps sake.

Managed to get the little pop up Paris map today. Little does DH realise that I am planning to scrap it once we've been Lol. Might have to make it a removeable item though just in case he decides towhisk me off on that romantic weekend one day. Hmmm.
I was trying to upload some of the snowy photos from yesterday but they don't seem to want to load atm. Awkward things. Anyway, I will see you soon and will (hopefully) share some of the many photos we are bound to take.
