All for the love of craft!!

It feels like summer has packed up and gone for good.
Where's that sunshine we had last week???????
We are back to drizzle, hot chocolates and hotwater bottles at bedtime (or is that just me?).

I was looking back at some older pages from last year and found this one that was made for the SCRAP365 magazine.
The photos were taken during a weekend to Paris with some lovely scrapbooking girlies.

It was such a lovely weekend with the perfect traveling companions. 
We stopped off at a big craft expo on the Friday evening which was the reason (excuse) for the trip : )
A couple of the girls bought huge MDF trees. I was tempted but could not be hassled with the thought of carrying it back on the Eurostar.
So on the Sunday when we checked out of the hotel, we did our last stint of sight seeing before taking the metro back to the Eurostar and then walking through London and taking the tube and then train back home.
It was funny and we decided to take photos of the famous MDF trees whilst on their travels.
I used a Cocoa Daisy leaf stamp on my page. I stamped in to patterned paper and stitched through each centre and then just stuck the centres down and curled up the side to give the leaves a little bit of life.

Such happy memories of this weekend.
And the next SCRAP365 magazine goes on sale on the 20th Sept.
I can't wait!!
Have a great day xx
