And here is my layout:

I remember walking down Rue du Temple, turning my head and unexpectedly seeing the Pompidou….I felt my college Art History classes coming to life.  The Centre Georges Pompidou is a museum for modern art, a public library, and a center for music and acoustic research.  Then center is named after Georges Pompidou, who commisioned the building.  He was the President of France from 1969 to 1974.  Unfortunatly, the museum was closed while we were in Paris, so I never got to go inside it.  However, I do have photos taken on a later date of the colorful water fountains in front of the museum.  I can’t wait to scrap those!  If you would like to learn more about the Pompidou, click this link.

Details, details:

 Incorporating fortune cookie fortunes into my layouts is something I use to do in the past.  I decided to revive this fun tradition of mine!

DSCN3042  I layered and stitched down these October Afternoon banner flags and then bent them up for some added dimension.

DSCN3045  I used some of my “try it out left over stampy paper” to create this banner.  This camera stamp is an exclusive from JBS Mercantile and the yellow tag is vintage from one of Jenni’s past kits.

This My Mind’s Eye chipboard bird cage banner flag completes the underlying bird theme going on in this layout.  It started with the little October Afternoon bird saying, “Shhh,” in the middle of the trims, to the little bluebird on the banner flags, to this bird cage, that I thought related to the building of the Pompidou itself.  I also just love these Teresa Collins photo corners that I’ve been trying and trying to use.  I was so happy when they worked on this layout!

I really loved working with this sketch and I know you will too!  So, get yourself over to the Sketch-N-Scrap challenge blog for all the details and link up to win.  The prize this month is sponsored by Sketch-N-Scrap, which is some awesome goodies from Crate Paper’s Love Notes collection.
