Life is good - CSI case file no. 267

A new month, with a new challenge at CSI, case file no. 267:
For quite a long time I had no idea what to do with this case file. I don't celebrate Christmas and the moodboard was so so Christmas! 
Finaly, I decided to go 'freestyle' and to let myself be inspired by the colors scheme. I used a photo from our travel to Paris. When we walked down Champ-Elysees, we were caught in a heavey rain and found shelter at Paul's, warming ourselves with hot chocolate and macaroons.
When I looked for the matching pp, I came across an old My Mind's Eye paper, which had all the colors on on side, while the reverse side had a great geenish pattern. I wanted to use both sides of the paper, so I decided to make the folded circles. Who said you can't eat your cake and have it too?....
The design is kind of scraplift from Stacy Cohen.
The pp for the base is from Craftandyou and the pp for the photo matting are from Studio 75 'The Peony Avenue' collection.
I also used the following clues: dots, a tag, create your design using a grid.
My journaling, on the tag attached to the photo, describe this lovely moment.
Here're some close-ups on the details:

Thank you for visting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.

Ah Libeeti - you absolutely aced this challenge. Love the quilting effect, the offset diamond and the back story in Paris. A standout for me. Love it,

Wow! Libeeti, that is such a great idea to fold the circles. Very effective too.
