We'll always have Paris - mini album

I've made this mini album about a wonderful vacation I had with my BF in Paris,  on July 2009. It was a very spontaneous decision to go (two days ahead) , and against all chances - my passport was invalid and it was almost impossible to get a new one within only one day, plus my youngest had fever the night before I left). It was on of my best vacations and we had such a great time! I just love Paris....

The mini album is in the vintage style, of course, and I used a lot of distressing, tearing and inking (my fingers were all inked :)))...). There are tags, hidden journaling, stamps, rhienstones, rub-ons, chipboards, charms, stickers, perals and ribbons. But strangely  - no lace.. I just realized it when it was all finished.

In order to give it the look of a book, I used accordion folding, and then I adhered every two pages into the folds:

Please join me to a little tour in this oh so beautiful city. And while you're looking at my mini album, why not enjoy this oh so wonderful song, by Malcolm Maclaren, called "Jazz is Paris":

And here are my pages:

I loved making this one, it was like going back to Paris (how I wish I could...).

stitching - tuesday throwdown
show some love - simon says stamp and show (for me, Paris is the ultimate for love and romance)
you choose your challenge ( I chose 'distressing' - #22;  and  'charm it' - #33) - odbd
fancy folds - meljen's designs
jewllery - creativebelli (mine are pearls and rhinesotns)

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog!

מיני אלבום שהכנתי על חופשה בפריז, עם החברה הכי טובה שלי, לפני כשנה וחצי. בחרתי, כמובן, במראה הוינטאג'י. יש באלבום תגיות נשלפות וכיתובים נסתרים. השתמשתי במדבקות מתגרדות, חותמות, בלינגים, פנינים, סטיקרים, סרטים וצ'יפבורדים. קרעתי ויישנתי דפים ותמונות,  ובכדי ליצור מראה של ספר, עשיתי קיפולי אקורדיון ואת הדפים עם התמונות הדבקתי לתוך הקיפולים.  להכין את האלבומון הזה היה כיף גדול מאד, כאילו לצאת שוב לטיול הזה.

תודה על תשומת הלב!

I visited Paris when I was in High School, and sadly, I don't remember much of the trip! From what I've seen of the city, it is beautiful and I would definitely love to go again, now that I am older and can appreciate it! Your book is beautiful! It looks like a lot of love and care went into this and it will be wonderful to look at this in years to come and remember a wonderful vacation!
Thanks so much for playing along at Meljen's Designs this week!
