A Little Bit French

I read about the tornados that have hit America once again ... I hope you are all ok ... my thoughts and prayers are with you all ... 
We are fortunate where we are ... I cannot imagine how it must be for those of you to lose your homes ... your loved ones ... just know I am thinking of you

Next week I have my sweet Aunt coming to stay ... she will be celebrating her 85th Birthday with us and I won't get to visit your blogs as often ... So I have been keeping ahead of DT assignments ready to post in the next few weeks ... But sometimes it is just lovely to make something "just because" ... and it keeps me happy ... so I have a couple of bookmarks to share with you that I made quite late last night 

 Digital papers and digital elements from various kits I have .... I enjoy doing digital from time to time ... playing around with things till I like the look ...
This is the reverse

Just the same as the front ... I print the papers and adhere them to 2 thickness of card stock

again ... the reverse is the same 

The other thing I wanted to show you is a place we discovered a couple of days ago ... maybe 30 mins away yet I never knew it existed ... Take a look inside 

This is just a small part of the whole store ... Heaven yes?
And remember this lovely piece of furniture I got a few weeks ago 

Well now I have 2 and their big sister 

And yes I know there is no photograph in that frame yet ... still deciding what to put in it ...

Have a lovely day ... see you all tomorrow for the City Crafter challenge

What beautiful bookmarks, Ros. Love the shabby french design.

Your tables are so pretty. Too bad that store is so far away. I would love to shop there. :)

Gorgeous bookmarks Ros, at first I thought you used stamps on them. Such fine pieces they are, as is your new furniture, your house will look completely different now! Enjoy!

What kind of printer do you use - inkjet or laserprinter?
Stunningly beautiful projects again!
