Please join me on my papercrafting journey.

I came across this blog whilst out blog surfing one day and I was immediately drawn to the criteria at ARTistic Challenge - the use of recycled material to feature prominently on your work for their June Challenge. So I had a go!
My sisters decorating style is shabby chic/French Provincial and so I have tried to capture these on the layout. Many years ago whilst in US I purchased a bag of Bits of Inspiration - the bag contained bits of paper, antique labels, funky scraps, old postage, bit of metal and more! And I have used many of the bits on this layout. I laid the paper onto the backing from an old packet paper of Stampin' Up! - I would normally throw this out. The Shabby Chic tag and pink ribbons are from some goodies she purchased on holidays this past month, the pin was from a clothes tag from a top I purchased this month, and a single diamante earring I had has been added as well. The reference to Paris on a number of the embellishments represents her love for this city. The ruffled up green paper was looking rather boring until I added some left over Kaisercraft Jewel self adhesive pearls and rhinestones.
