Each year, in March, Gracia and I try to have a little holiday away, just the two of us. This year we went to Paris - somewhere she had been but I hadn't. We were blown away by the small independent shops and the way their goods were so beautifully displayed, especially the patisserie shops!

For this layout I wanted to focus on using the Toast frames to add multiple photos and journaling to my page.

I started with a piece of Toast Paper 1, which I trimmed 1/4" from each side. I then added this to the reverse of a piece of Toast Paper 2. I then splattered white ink all over this but it doesn't really show up.

I added photos to four 3" x 3" frames and one 4" x 4" frame. These were arranged at the top of my page with a 2" x 3" frame, containing journaling, at the bottom.

I fussy-cut some butterflies, from one of the Vintage Artistry Naturalist Bookplates and scatted these around the photos.

I used cork letters, from my own supplies for the title and finished my page with two flowers from a pack of Burlap Flowers Dark Natural, some Toast acetate leaves and a paper flower from my own supplies.
