All About the Grand

 I've been doing some Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essential Pages about one of my favorite people, the Grand.  She is actually my step grand, but I just adore her so. I used circles to cover her face (sorry) because she is not my wee one to show off.

This first one uses the Planner Essentials 41 for the page base and I added some Strawberry die cuts as well as some fun rick-rack I had in my stash.  I love the leaf reinforcments.

The next page is all about when my husband met the wee one. She was only a few days old. I saw the leaf edge from someone on the Planner Essentials Facebook Group and added some flowers from the Florals 9 to mine. The page base here is from the Planner Essentials 56 set, and I used some Fitted and Stitched Circles for the text.

Trip to France

 I had a once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel with my parents to France in August 2022. The trip had been delayed for two years due to COVID, so it was even more special. Here are some of the Sidekick Essentials pages I made with products from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The Musee d'Orsay was so special. I studied French in school and fell in love with the impressionists. Look, it's a Van Gogh Starry Night painting!  WoW!

So many fun sights to see in Paris.  We spent a week there, and we saw many of the fabulously fun places!

Of course, we did the Eiffel Tower. My mom made reservations so we could go to the top!  I was a total fan girl!

Love Love Love!

Here's some pictures from the inside of the Eiffel Tower.

On our trip, we did a two-week Rick Steve Tour. So fun to see small medieval towns like Sarlat-le-Caneda!

Thanks for "traveling with me" on my memory tour. The products I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are listed below.

City Bus Day

 On my trip to France with my mom and dad last summer, we did the total tourist thing and took the city bus around the city. Great experience to see all the tourist sites in one day.  Here's the page I made:

and the back!

The products I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are linked up below. The paper is from an old Basic Grey set.

During my trip to France, my parents and I did a Rick Steve Tour where we stopped at Oradour Sur Glane. If you don't know the story, read about it. I only took a few pictures because I cried most of the way through it.  This is the only page in my book without pictures of me or my parents.

I used Sidekick Pocket Pages to create this page. These plastic sleeves sure makes creating a page easy and fun when you also use the Pocket Page Fillers 1 set.

I also used the Moods and Family stamps to create these pages. The products I used from Elizabeth Craft Designs are below.
