CKC February Challenge #1

The first of the two monthly challenges to put the February kit (put together for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge) to work is HERE.  It's called I Love Paris and is about whatever inspires each one of us when we think of Paris.

 


 
Now I'm sure a fair few of you out there think of fashion...in particular designer fashion houses and haute couture.  

I have the perfect photos that are allllll about this topic.  This one comes courtesy of those distinctive red-soled shoes that are Christian Louboutin.

This is the third layout of my lovely niece wearing these shoes (about once per year) and in addition to showing her growth, there is a natural development in the story.  




 





I just wish I hadn't used the word "choice" in the title since it was in the previous title in this series, but since the layouts will live in different albums, it shouldn't be an issue.






I mixed Carta Bella's Metropolitan Girl with Basic Grey's Mon Ami (and a couple of pieces of older My Mind's Eye).  Overall I'm happy enough with the way the colours and patterns played together.


The placement of the elements was pretty much exactly scraplifted from this layout of Shimelle's that she made during one of her fun Friday Live videos on Facebook.

There Is Only One Choice


There were certainly issues with construction involving much pulling up of paper and damage control...not to mention trying to finish it before March dawns in the US 😳😳😳


Well we got there in the end but not quite in time.  So very close, but my defective body let me down at the very last minute in terms of getting this layout on the interwebs.

Oh well...I'm celebrating the small things which are anothet layout done and another story told.

Love and happy storytelling!
