Bonjour everyone.

The inspiration for the title of course comes as a result of the lovely Kaiser Bonjour Collection which has been recently released.  I love the colours and designs of this collection and we were lucky enough to get to use it early up at the Scrapping Patch Spring Retreat at Glentui recently.  Steph Devlin designed a lovely layout as shown and then with the excess supplies I decided to replicate the design as much as I could into a Birthday Card.  Here is my layout.

 The chipboard french word  'Je t'aime' means "I Love You" so I felt it was perfect for wedding vows and the back of the bride's dress was laced as on the chippie on the layout.

And the card.

 The photo is replaced with flowers and a Websters Pages Embellishment. 
 I thoroughly enjoyed creating this layout and card with such beautiful papers.

Hope you had a good weekend.  The weather here was very summery yesterday so that enticed me outside to do the lawns, wash my car and the outside of the caravan - subsequently I have sore muscles today and a head cold for good measure. I did manage a layout on Saturday night - this month's challenge over at Paper Chase here.  It is a good way of using lots of photos on a page.

Thanks for visiting and thanks for taking the time to comments on my last post.  I am glad I made Lisa's day - Auntie Maud was very special and special to me as I brought my 1st car, a Morris Minor, off her and named my car Maud.  I did a layout for a challenge once so will post it next time.

Well it is that time of day when it's time to make tea so must away for now....
