Je Me Souviens {I remember}

I was so excited when I read Moxi Fab World's Picking Up the Pieces Challenge. Lately. I'm enjoying cutting the details of fancy pattered papers and create a scene like what I did here and here.

So last night I searched for a photo taken by my hubby one breezy Sunday afternoon in "Ville de Montreal" where we lived for more than 3 years before moving permanently here in Ontario. I love Montreal and I really miss walking along the streets of Vieux Montreal where the "old world" blends beautifully with modern cafes, galleries, vibrant open market and colorful flower shops. I want to re-capture those afternoons we spent just strolling or people watching {who by the way are always dressed like they just came out from a fashion photo shoots} or picking fresh flowers or even just smelling the freshly-baked croissant from the "boulangerie" in a layout.

To re-create these scenes, I used Webster's pages "salon les fleur" from their postcard from Paris collection. I also cut out papers from old greetings cards sent to me by 2 of my friends { sorry, ladies. i kept the dedication though :-)} Can't help to stamp something on the layout so I added the birdbath {which I love so much} from Inkadinkado and the postcard stamp {used as background for the photo} from Prima.

Ah, Quebec, tu es la belle province! Je me souviens! A bientot!

Bonne fete semaine,

Mei Ann
