My Kraft It Up D.T. Layout
"Paris City of Love"

 Hi everyone, just want to show you my  DT layout I have just done for this months challenge over at Kraft It Up.  Here is this months criteria.
*Something you want/wish to do in the future...
* Think bucketlists, lifelong wishes etc...
Your layout needs to be created on Kraft patterned paper or Kraft cardstock and MUST have journaling.

Soooo, I have based my layout on Paris where I would love to visit the Paris Opera House, which is where 
"The Phantom of the Opera" was set. As I said on my journalling tag, I think I am a sentimental old fool!!

 I have used this gorgeous 2 Crafty chipboard  Eiffel Tower. I sooo love this piece. I have simply painted it black & added a touch of Copper Ink to bring it to life. So simple.

I have included lots of layers from our favourite Graphic 45, all Paris oriented of course!!! You may also notice in my close up above,  my cute little "Phantom" poster, again courtesy of the internet!!

I have done lots of stamping & I have used a Dusty Attic chippie "Paris Postmark" here as well.

I found this beautiful photo of the Eiffel Tower taken through gates, on the internet & lastly I have fussy cut this gorgeous lady to add  a touch of fashion to my layout.
Well I hope I have given you a little inspiration to join in with us this month over at "Kraft It Up".
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
Cheers Di  xo
