Paris Nights

Just a short post today as I seem to be wasting a good chunk of this morning (but I guess that is a nice thing about a lazy Sunday morning after a long morning walk).
 I wanted to link up to Moo Mania. The latest theme is Paris, and the other day I made this page. I used a Geli printed and stamped background, this crazy abstract Eiffel tower that I cut out of one of those old fashioned paper bags, and some assorted ephemera I found on my work table while cleaning up the mess a little bit. I also added the little metal stars which I sparkled up with some gold glitter.
Hope everyone is having (or had) a beautiful summer weekend. We've been busy here celebrating a long holiday weekend.  We've had a couple of boating days, and I think today will be  low key since tomorrow is the big cook out at the mother-in-laws for the 4th. (In the US our Independence Day). I have a cake I need to frost and decorate for tomorrow, and I really want to get in and play with some paint, but we will see what the day brings whether everyone will let me do that or not. My husband tends to get antsy once his "chores" for the day are done, and so he may want to go out and do something, or he may not. He isn't saying now-which gets a bit frustrating as I like to plan my day a little bit at least.  Oh well, it is what it is. Once the weekend is over I have most of the week ahead to play to my hearts content.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I always appreciate it.

An Eiffel tower made out of a paper bag! - that's ingenious, and the whole piece is so creatively made, and looks great too. I'm always full of admiration at the way you make art, no matter what.
Love your bright fresh July header too.

Very behind in my visits! I love the Paris layout but then, it's Paris -- what's not to love! Still, this is terrific. I'll be catching up but meanwhile, thanks for your visits!
