The Everything ABC's Blog Hop - Letter E

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "E". This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "E" element will be featured in their post.
If you came from Marie Goetz - Marie's Paper Crafting and Such then you're on the right track!

For my letter "E" creation I used the retired Emporium paper, the "E" sized alphabet stamp set and our new embossing folders, elemental paper, embelishments including, elegant lace, heat embossed Eiffel Tower, plus envelopes with hidden journaling, show casing examples of various distressing This layout was an endeavor of love in which I attempted to expand my techniques while having high expectations of creating an eye-popping layout for my grand daughter's Easter-break French class trip to Paris last year. Since I'm essentially a card maker the results are equally extra-special and epic.  Of course I endorse the the CTMH stamp sets and used the extra-ordinary Eiffel Tower from the Amour stamp set (D1632). I hope you enjoy this hop, I enthusiastically encourage you to explore the entire hop making encouraging comments along the way. We actually read each and every comment and thank you for taking the time to enrich our experience. 

This layout actually has 12 photos with 8 more hidden under the flip flaps -4x4 and 3x4 sizes.  

The  end of January I attended a local retreat weekend crop retreat put on by the Firs' Conference Center of Bellingham, WA.  They do an amazing job of providing a relaxing, entertaining weekend.  They always have a theme and this year was a Weekend escape to Paris.  One night they put on a skit and had a photo op corner with the Eiffel Tower.

So for letter "E" I created a  Studio J Layout of the Eiffel Tower, 
using the Emporium Paper pack.
