Springtime in Paris

Hello there bloggers!

In April I had the chance to take ten of my seniors, my daughter, and some parents and family members to London and Paris for nine days. My students had a life changing experience and although it was a gruelling trip, every moment was worth it. But it has taken me THIS long to recover from the rigor and be able to begin crafting with the trip in mind. I'm currently working on mini canvases for my students and will post those when I've finished them (thanks to Stephanie for the idea!!).

But in the meantime, I started making thank you cards for the parent that came along... Although I know she didn't enjoy Paris as much as she loved London, we did have a chance to see the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, so this Tim Holtz stamp was perfect for her. And it allowed me to crack out the UTEE that I've been dying to play with for quite a while now! :)

I had lots of fun making this one because it was made with lots of love for a special mom who inspires me to be a better mom myself... And that always makes papercrafting that much more exciting...  :)
I'll be submitting this one to Charisma Cardz for their Pink and Girly challenge. They are also having a DT call over at Charisma... I'm considering applying because my darling Karmyn is always gushing about how much she loves her spot there, but I'm not sure yet...

I'm also submitting this one to Card Making Mamas for their flowers challenge and Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge. Thanks for looking and happy scrapping!!!
