Bonjour...CR84FN40 60

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, October 8, 2011 @ 8:55 PM | , , ,

Bonjour and Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends! :) It's time for an all new CR84FN Color challenge and time to introduce our Guest Designer!  Many thanks to all the designers who took on CR84FN39 and to those who are so kind to leave such encouraging comments :) For the next 2 challenges / 4 weeks, Cheryl Lea will be sharing her beautiful designs along with the CR84FN DT! Her work is awesome ~ click HERE and take a peek for yourself! For the next two weeks, we will be playing with the fun color combination shown below:
***NOTE the quote: In loving memory of Steve Jobs, Scott has shared a beautiful quote from Steve himself ~ may he rest in peace.

Not a whole lot of stamping going on here ~ I took advantage of the gorgeous French themed 7gypsies patterned paper.
Embracing the French theme of the patterned paper, I inked up the Bonjour sentiment and polka dot frame from  Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases which coordinates perfectly with Spellbinders Fancy Tags One die template. I made a few tissue paper flowers using Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles LG and Big Scalloped Circles SM die templates:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge
That pretty much sums thing up. Thank you so much for visiting me today and I hope you join along in the fun! For some amazing inspiration and COMPLETE details,  please visit the CR84FN site and all of the following designers: Cheryl Lea (Guest Designer),  Suzanne CzosekLisa SomervilleStephanie KraftSue LelliHeather JensenDeborah FringsAndrea Mathews
