Monday Monday

I am getting my easter eggs ready for a swap--I decided to picture them for a hint for the hunters.  This might be really hard.  I have only found two bloggers in my blogworld who are participating.  But, I do believe in the joy of the hunt.  This should be fun.  The Heidi Swapp bling was in Janet's package, too.
This is some of the paper goodness I won in Janet Hopkins CHA giveaway.  The letters I purchased at the house of 3(press the button that says enjoy the process).  It will be a SPRING banner---I had to have that right away.  The package also contained some invisibles by Heidi Swapp--this paper is so much fun to play with.  I feel so lucky to have my hands on it already.
The following is the last post for RhondaMum's for the love of french event.  I really enjoyed seeing all of her eiffel towers and french books.  The event was great and I am so glad I participated.

We did the cover in class.  I love how the clock on the cover looks like the clock in the Musee d'Orsay.  The Musee d'Orsay is an old train station with the original clock.  It at one time was going to be torn down.  It was saved and contains the most magnificent collection of Impressionist Art.



I love the clear pockets---perfect to hold some of my vintage postcard finds.

     I wasn't even sure if I was going to blog today.   I  am hosting a tea at my house in two weeks and wanted to concentrate on the invites---I really wanted to get them out today---didn't happen--I am frustrated with myself.  Worked on some things today and I kept saying I am going to post pictures of my memory book from Paris....so, I figured I would do that today.  I love this memory book I took a class with Janet Hopkins at Creative Escape last year.  Everyone is anxiously awaiting for them to be available---the last I heard was in March.  I was a little mad at myself because I didn't get much done in class.  But, now I am glad because this book was perfect to use for my trip to Paris.

Very pretty Geralyn, I am doing the egg swap as well. Thanks for your kind e-mail. I am doing fine. I actually finished my eggs today which was nice. Now to find a box for them and send them on their way. Love the Paris memory book. I'll be back soon. Hugs, Pam

Wow Geralyn, I love your new blog look! I also love your Paris book. I still need to finish mine from my trip there in 2004! Maybe yours will give me a little inspiration!
Good luck in your egg hunt!
