I came across this neat challenge over at the Scraputante blog,
so I decided to post this challenge here and invite all of you to play along with me

There are so many beautiful French lines coming out: We have Glitz Designs French Kiss, French Canadian Harmonie's Shabby Love and now Prima's En Francais...

So, here is the challenge...

1) please let me know if you will be participating in this challenge
2) Post your project here by April 30. Your project can be a layout, digital layout, altered project, or card.
3) your project must include at least three of the following: an eiffel tower, a french word or phrase, a fleur de lis, french blue, french food, beret. Interpret it as you wish!
4)On May 1, I will ask that you submit to me your top 3 via private message. Please do not choose you own layout as you will get one vote just for voting. I will set up a poll and everyone will vote for the winner.
5)The winner will receive a RAK from me.

Most of all have fun with it!

Digital is so much easier for me but all my digi stuff is on the broken computer & ext hard drive (once I get a FT job I'll get the info off of them) and I have alot of french digi kits....so I'm doing paper and using up my supplies for now. (I can't afford the ink to print out digi anyways lol) Boy I can't wait for a FT job, getting laid off from a great paying job to taking low wage pt jobs is awful. But I'm just thinking about all the supplies that I'll be able to get when that time comes and French supply lines at that!

Thanks, Ladies, but the real thanks needs to go to Courtney for hosting such an amazing challenge.

I don't think I would have thought up, "Go French" so I'm very glad that SHE did. Without it, my project would never have seen the light of day. So - thanks, Courtney!

And I'm very appreciative that so many of you thought it "win worthy." There is so much talent in this community, it's always very humbling to win.

Well, I have a plan, but it's kind of a weird plan.

I have a picture of an Osage Orange tree, which I took at the Dallas Gardens a couple of weeks ago. Around here, they're known as Bodark trees. They're indigenous to this region, so they are fairly common.

These trees were favored by the Native Americans for constructing their bows, and they would travel long distances to find this particular tree. The wood is hard and strong, and practically impervious to rot. They make GREAT fence posts - they just last forever. The bugs won't eat them, and even when the tree dies, the wood just refuses to rot.

Oklahoma was part of the Louisiana Territory - we were settled by the French, believe it or not. Well, when the French explorers observed the native people constructing their bows from these trees, they gave it the name, "Bois D'arc" (bwah DARK) which means "wood of the bow." Later, settlers cobbled it down to Bodark (BOWdark).

So I have a photo, I have a plan, I even have a sketch.

What I don't have is a collection of French product. I pretty much used up my stash on my last project...

Any ideas from the Peanut Gallery?

(Listening to the chirping of the crickets...)

make some! You don't need to use french papers per say - do you have something you can make a fleur de lis with - if so cut some out (or punch some out) - lay them on a background piece of cardstock and mist or ink - make your own background!

Tammy you beat me to it. Well actually my first response was going to be to go shopping!!! Lol. But then I thought make some.

Use stamps and inks. It just has to have 3 of the elements. Not necessarily French papers.

Love the idea pat!! Great story and I learned something!!

Mist? MIST? Are you KIDDING? I don't mist! I make a big MESS with mist!

Only THREE elements? Then I think I've got that covered. I was thinking I have to have one of everything!

I have some fleur de lis buttons and some ribbon too, so that with my title and I'm good to go, right? I don't HAVE to use French paper?

I guess it would help if I went and reviewed the challenge specs, huh?

****

Ok. I'm using a french word or phrase, a fleur de lis, and french blue (if I can find it in my mile high paper stash!).

Good Morning Ladies,

Just getting back from vacation and I'm afraid I'm trying to catch up with life! Only four pages to catch up here, phew!!!

Pat...Congrats on the fantastic winning lo!!!
Dollscrap...left you some gallery luv on your beautiful creation!
Courtney...I'm thinking on this one, but may wind up 'snooping' this thread this month! Just depends if I get an inspiration and can carve out some scrappy time for myself this month.
Ladies...It was nice to catch up with the other ladies I didn't comment on too!

My littlest daughter, Ashley age 22, is flying the coop this month and she's recruited her Dad and I to help her with her IKEA shopping and putting together of new furniture! So I've got such mixed feelings at the moment. Very excited for her on the one hand, and scared for her on the other. I'll miss her terribly, but she'll be near by so that will help. She's moving in with another young couple that are college students. Bitter sweet news for me...sniff, sniff, sniff!

I stocked up on flowers and things at Archivers before I clocked in yesterday and I'm ready to finish! I even found this great dress form to use on my page-until I remembered dress forms was last month no tthis month!

So my question for our fearless leader-do french beverages of an alcoholic nature count as 'food' or is that too much of a stretch?

Well you can still include the dress form if you would like...

And yes I would say that a french drink counts as food...I am very liberal with the interpretation. If you can explain how you interpreted the ingredient, I will accept it...

Have fun!! Cant wait to see!!

Pat - that's such a unique idea!! What a cool story and I can't wait to see what you do with it!

I agree, make 'em! But it sounds like you're covered. And I finally made a misting box out of an old moving box and it's soooooo great!

I too was struggling with the French items... used my only Eifle Tower last month.. have some fleur de lis to use, but was stumped on the beret and french word. Then I remembered... DUH... one of our favorite restaurants to go to with my in-laws is this french place on Sunset, it has a name, but none of us can remember or pronounce it so we just affectionately call it 'The French Restaurant'. Their menu is in French, which makes it easier for my in-laws to read since French and Spanish have lots of similarities. AND I remembered that DH's step-dad looooves to wear berets and I'm quite sure I have a picture of him in one there. (Did find one photo last night, but we're not at the French Restaurant! Aaah!) So I'll prob use the beret, word/phrase, blue and a fleur de lis or two.

Welcome back Dawna!

Oh - I HAVE a misting box, but I still end up making a huge mess anytime I go to use my mists.

Don't get me wrong. I USE them. I just make a big mess, so I don't usually try to mist anything that needs to LOOK like anything when it's done.

I mist paper that I want to make flowers from, mist flowers that I've already finished and want a finally "touch of shimmer" on, mist cardstock that needs a color.

But mist and mask? The technique escapes me. I've tried it. I don't get great results. Someday when I have a whole lot of time and no looming projects, I plan to practice. In the meanwhile, my mists and I just kind of glare at each other. Well, they twinkle. I glare.

This weekend I WILL get this project done. This one and my one for the One Month At A Time challenge.

Two projects. That's not too many for a weekend.

been out for awhile with this stupid influenza - this junk really puts you out & you feel like death - when the hospital told my grandson that it lasts two weeks I was like yeah right, but it does seem to last for ever...so hoping to catch up on everything next week (including household chores) and finish my Paris mini book -- trying to get 8 days into one little book.

Good morning ladies,

I hope you're all doing well today! I'm having a little 'open house' this afternoon to show the new RV to a few of our friends. I'm still so excited about it!

We're heading out camping again at the end of the month then on to Palm Springs with a girlfriend for a few days. I love planning a few things ahead of time. It always gives me something nice to look forward to.

Pat...I share the mess with you girlfriend! lol

Annie...Your LO is just FABULOUS! Can't wait to see everyone else's creations!

Carol...take good care of yourself and get well soon! I'll be thinking good thoughts for you.

Courtney...I think I'll participate this month after all. But like the other lades, a bit stumped for inspiration at the moment. I'll keep thinking about it though. I'm sure to come up with something!

I've cleaned up my LAST mess and now I'm getting myself ready to make a NEW mess.

I have a plan, a sketch, and a photo. I think I'm good to go.

Thanks everyone -- today I spent the whole day out of bed and did housework and job hunting - ugh! So since I'm still awake (gee must be from sleeping 13-18hrs a day) I figured I'd start my mini book.

So Pat, if you mist, I'll mist - lol I finally found my craft sheet (it is a bit raggy since Skitty likes clawing it - weirdo cat).

So ten pages and the front cover to do mini's of 8 days in Paris....hmmmmm......and I'm doing this one blue & green -- for one I have so many with deep reds and browns for all the gold used and two for the spring challenge, I figure it'll be good to branch out colorwise some more.

Courtney you are already thinking of next month? Wow you are inspiring! I'm still thinking of mine this month. I have a French food collage from my trip to Paris in Feb but the colors keep throwing me for a loop.

Dawna you are so lucky to go to Palm Springs! I'll take some more sunshine please.

Carol I hope you feel better quickly.

I live only an hour away from Palm Springs and it always makes for a wonderful get away weekend! Really looking forward to seeing 'Follies' with my girlfriends! I'll have to take some fun pic's of us too!

Digging through my stash yesterday and found some vintage french labels. That's one item down. Hummm ...
