In August we drove over to France in the Motorhome to spend a few days away sightseeing and relaxing, and after not having spent any time in the motorhome away racing this year, due to Jack breaking his leg, it was nice to be in there again, it's our little home from home!

During our stay in France we drove a lot, stopping off at places we liked and we packed so much into our little adventure.  Of course my camera was with me all the time so I took lots of photographs to share when we got home.

Once place we wanted to go to was the Abbey of the Mont St. Michel, the most amazing

We used a base colour of Crumb Cake and teamed it with Always Artichoke and Not Quite Navy which co-ordinated with our Springtime Vintage Paper (now retired). The new Lace Ribbon Punch made a beautiful border down the left side of the layout and we punched out Whisper White circles and stuck them behind to make the border stand out a little.

We used the Big Shot to create our title with the "Timeless Type" Sizzlits Dies, it is just so quick and easy to cut them out. The "of" was stamped using "Just Perfect" alphabet stamps which are also really great for personalising your cards too!

The Not Quite Navy flowers were something Amanda Fowler showed us on a swap she created and I just love them. They are created using the 5 Petal Flower punch and then one of the Bitty Punches for the centres attached with a brad. The large River Rock flower to the bottom right was die cut using the "Fun Flowers" Bigz L die with the Big Shot Machine.

Those pretty little butterflies in the top left corner were stamped using "Clearly for You" stamps in Crumb Cake ink so we had a tone on tone effect.
