Here is the challenge photo at Let's Get Shabby:
We were limited to using two elements from: lace. chipboard, fabric, and book/music page. (Quite difficult, because I often use all four out of habit!) I used fabric and chipboard.

|Marseille 2h.: using fabric and chipboard|
To emphasize my French theme, I chose papers from the Parisian Anthology, and inked them a little with a steel gray ink. I edge punched some blue cardstock and tucked it in behind to incorporate the blue colour from the napkin.
To represent the vertical placement of the knife and fork, I ran long strips of Webster's bloomers to frame the photos:
I used the numeral 2 to designate the hour (2 heures). The chipboard is covered thickly in white and black Enamel Accents to give it the look of a French address plaque.
The butterflies and floral wreath are also chipboard, and I made the letter packet by covering chipboard pieces with stickers from Tim Holtz, and tying it with string.
This challenge really appealed to me and yet stumped me at the same time: it definitely stretched my creative brain. It was fun to scrap these photos and remember that wonderful week in Marseille just two years ago. There's still time to enter this challenge - it ends July 20.

Thanks so much for stopping by. A votre sante, and have a wonderful day!
