A Touch of Paris--"Girlie Girl" Week Continues

Hi Everyone~

Oh, how I love everything with a Paris theme! So, I created the piece above with one of my favorite images. As many of you know, I design for Shabby Cottage Studio and I couldn't resist a chance to make this with one of their images.

"Just Married" Clipboard and Tag

And next is a very special commissioned piece that I created for a wedding. It is a true thrill for me to create art that is in keeping with a specific theme that someone wants~pure fun!

Featuring vintage images from my own collection, plus
images from The Graphics Fairy and Shabby Cottage Studio,
in addition to graphic embellishments.

Thank you for coming to visit! It is always awesome to have you come over and spend some time here.


Linking this to the very fabulous Show & Tell Friday!

Linking this to the amazing Pink Saturday!

Linking this to awesome Graphics Fairy!!!

Am loving it!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Cindy Sweetie...
Another beautiful treasure. I love it. Just gorgeous. I love seeing the Eiffel Tower and the flower so makes it all pop.

Could we hop in the hot air balloon and take a little trip across the Paris sky? Oh what fun that would be. I love the little clothes pin as well. You are so creative sweetie. A beautiful package all made into one creative piece of art.

I love the lady in the first share as well. Does she not say "FUN?" I also love the little crown and the key, that splash of pink is SO fun. I also love the crinkled bias tape. It is the perfect touch along with that little pearl.

Thank you for sharing with me sweetie. I am so happy that DH is home and you two will have some quiet time together. Hope you have a beautiful weekend sweet one.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

Hi Cindy. Are you having a lovely weekend?
Enjoyed looking at all your projects. I love altering clipboards, recently altered one for French Kissed Postcards as part of my Artist in Residence, they are such fun to alter. Like yourself, I have a weakness for anything Parisian, as you well know :)

Rebecca said...

Happy Pink Saturday! Gorgeous as usual my talented friend!

Love your Paris crafts, Cindy. It has always been one of my favorite areas to crafts with. I spent a lot of time on the Shabby Cottage Studio site and they have some terrific things. I haven't pushed the button yet but I have a lot in my cart. I can sure add those cute papers up quickly!

Have fun with your husband. Jud and I are in Arizona with his parents and will come home tomorrow. Hooray! I am ready for home!!!
