Travel The World

Hi Everyone!
The end of the year draws near and its time for making New Year's resolutions and thinking what we'd like to do in the coming months. Perhaps you're thinking about travelling - off to sunny climes to escape the winter weather? Well as much as I'd like to I don't think I'll be off on my hols just yet so I thought I'd get involved with the Sir Stampalot Challenge which, this month, is to Travel The World. I made a little Paris themed mini book using Distress Inks and the Tim Holtz Artistry stamps. I embossed the details in gold embossing powder, added a little charm and a ribbon tie and made another little mini charm using shrink plastic. The front and back covers were made using UTEE and tiny beads embedded into the hot embossing powder to represent little stars above the Eiffel Tower. I hope you like it!
I'd also like to enter this piece in the Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes - Challenge.
Best wishes

    This project is just so gorgeous. I would love to be able to say I had made something this beautiful.

    I love all the gorgeous details you have added and the idea of putting the little beads into the UTEE is a great idea.

    Many congratulations on your magazine win .. .. I bet you can't wait to see what arrives as part of your special delivery .. .. I hope you share a peep.
