What a week!

This week I had the honour of being crowned "Queen of the week" at ISC by the lovely Cheryl/Polarbear! This is the ATC that Cheryl chose to make me Queen.

My sister was hosting an "Around the world" ATC swap (your favourite place to visit, the town where you live etc) and I wasn't sure where I wanted to do, so I tried out a few different places. A friend had told me that she may be going to Africa for a few months and I remembered I had some African pp that I had bought way back so she inspired me to come up with this ATC. I also made a Chinese ATCbut realised I didn't have enough supplies to make 9 for the swap. In the end I did Paris, it's the obvious choice as it's my favourite place in the whole world! I downloaded a map, greyscaled it and antiqued it and I think it makes the perfect background. I also used an Eiffel tower stamp that I bought in Paris, an X-cut flower punch, ribbon and some Papermania gems.

To top off my week I found out today that I had won "The Christmas in July" challenge hosted by my lovely friend Susan on the Paper crafts MB, how great is that! It's been one exciting week!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
