France and almost 30.........

We'll be leaving tomorrow to visit my grandparents in France...yup.. Nancy is off to Nancy (the city) for a few days! Just can't wait (although I'm definitely NOT looking forward to the trip.. just hate to sit down for so many hours.. haha)

I'll be turning 30 on August 14th during our trip!!! Just unbelievable that after this week I'll leave my 20's behind!!! I feel sooooo old.. haha!!! My grandparents are so excited that I'll be celebrating my birthday in France this year! We'll definitely take them out for dinner somewhere, something they loooove so much!

Soooo.. I'll leave you with 2 little cards and I promiss to be back with more new creations soon!!!

I've just finished this first card.. I had the opportunity to work with My Mind's Eye's newest papers.. sooo yummie!!


And some details....


And this card was pubbed in the previous issue of Cards Only magazine, I've used Dreamstreet papers here and decided just to use up my scraps.. this is what I came up with...


I'll take my laptop with me.. but I'm not sure if we'll have internet access during the upcoming days since my grandparents don't have an internet connection.

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet sweet comments over and over again!!!I'll be back on Friday!!

XOXO
Nancy

I *adore* all the things you make.
My scrap style is unfortunatly too "dark", I really want to do things more colourfull and your blog inspires me *so much*.
I did a big order at Two Peas in a Bucket (ordered some Doodlebug papers), i'll show you the result as soon as I'll get something done.
Hugs from France.
