Tour Montparnasse, Paris

We have just had a long weekend here in Australia (Queen's Birthday) and it was raining, raining and more rain and not to mention cold.  I spent the weekend decluttering my craft room and whilst I was in my scrapbooking papers I found this old kit from a store that is no longer operating. It would be many years old.  I loved the poppies and I just could not discard it every time I looked at it over the years.   Well, today I decided - use it!!! 
These photos were taken at Tour (Tower) Montparnasse, in Paris.  From the 59th observation floor of the tower you get 360 degree beautiful views over the entire city of Paris.  It takes just 38 seconds to get to the top. It was very windy the day my sister and I went up, earlier this year, and it was overcast but at just the right time the sun came out over the Tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower) and it made for a magical moment.
One of the elements of this layout are the stitched and beaded stem and leaves on the bottom right hand side flower.  I added the Versamark stamped images to finish the layout.
If you ever get to Paris I highly recommend a visit to this Tower, a hidden gem of Paris. Bonjour for now.  Thank you for looking.
