Favourite City - SUYS November Challenge

Hello everyone

I spent Friday night online, checking out Pinterest and reading reviews on TripAdvisor planning the Paris part of our trip next year. Saturday's news was devastating, so much tragedy in so many parts of the world, but I will admit Paris hit me hardest in light of planning our return trip there. 

Then I happened upon the latest challenge over at Show Us your Stuff and it was a travel theme. Perfect. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to scrap, a photo from my last visit to Paris. 

This is the challenge:

Favourite City

The map paper is from October Afternoons Travel Girl range and is a map of Paris. If you look to the left of my photo you can see I have placed it next to the Eiffel Tower on the map! My travel words are from Kaisercraft's Wanderlust collection - love this paper with various words.  

I've used a few different handmade embellishments on my page. This stunning heart from Charms Creations

and this adorable conversation bubble from {scrAp-this!}

and the wood veneer word favourite (it's so nice to be able to use this word without the american spelling) from Flutterby Designs, which I have inked and added a small red heart in place of the tittle (the dot) in the letter "i".

Thanks for stopping by
