Pages in Smash book.....

 The line across the middle of these pages just begged for somersaulting clowns.  ")  I love this little stamp.  I got it in an art trade at one of our stamp club meetings a few years ago.  I cut out the ferris wheel, the ticket and the "Circus" word from the front of a toy magazine.  The little clown holding the lollipop is another Mary Engelbreit figure.  The unicycle just seemed to go along with the clowns.
 This page had a picture of a man on the left and the word adore on the page.  I ended up putting photos of the grandchildren, magazine images and stamped images and layered over them with Tim Holtz tiny film strip.
I placed a "to do" list on this page and wrote out several things that I'm always saying I'd like to do.  Like the trip to Paris with the art group.  Had to add the Eiffel Tower.  Judi and I thought we would not even go there.  Then we ended up going to the top floor!  It was a great adventure.  ")
     I loved our neighborhood.....the 5th Arrondisement or the Latin Quarter as it is known.  And Notre Dame is there.  WAY across town is Sacre Couer at Montmarre.  We would just jump on the Metro and go any place we wanted.  Fabulous way to travel.  Being from a small town and never having lived in a large city where the subway is the way to go was quite a treat for us.


  1. I am so glad that you and Judi experienced the top of the Eiffel Tower. The art group I was with had been several times so Kimberly and I spent the afternoon and evening on our own. It was such an enjoyable and special time for the two of us. The line was a short one the early afternoon we decided to go. We shopped, ate dinner at a lovely restaurant and then on the way back home, stopped to take video of the tower at night with the lights that flash for 60 seconds all at once! The only thing I can think of that would have made my Paris trip more fun and that would have been for you and Judi to be a part of our group! Your pages are beautiful and I am sure they will always bring fond memories for you!

  2. I know, Sara. Judi and I often talk about how much fun it would have been to have you and Kimberly to run around with on this trip. We went to the Eiffel Tower with Barb and Jan and our line wasn't too long either. After the tower, we split up and Judi and went to a little sidewalk cage for lunch and then shoe shopping. ")
