Bonjour To You
Did you know that France is the Number 1 travel destination in Europe?  A list of fun French facts can be found at FACTS if you have a mind to broaden your literacy on this country.

Three of my friends and I have always wanted to make a fantasy trip to France to see French fashions.  
Wouldn't that be cool to soak in the sights, taste the cuisine, and shop til we drop??

Just for fun I made each fantasy - adventurer a keepsake of our dream.  Each will receive a bookmark when we next "do lunch" so here's what I designed.  The four bookmarks have some common elements and some that are different.

France #1

France #2

 France #3

France #4

I used Graphics 45 paper, Dylusions Couture Stamp for the dress forms and hats, Julie Nutting's armoire tags, flowers, straws, twine, LoveBug Creations Simply Sheer, some "French sayings" for sentiments, jewels, and the iconic Eiffel Tower stamp.  Dream away, my friends; perhaps next year!!

Actually, we are all going on a week-long research trip in August to Washington, DC, so our bags will be packed and we'll be enjoying fellowship while traveling in our own USA.

Up next is Haidee

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:

1. Connie (Greece)-
2. Madge (Ireland)-
