Paris Hot Chocolate and Art Double Page Layout

Here is a peek at the whole layout: 
Happy Friday! I made a layout last night using my new Teresa Collins "Everyday Moments" paper collection. How I love that woman. She has the most elegant designs...perfect for Paris <3. These photos were taken at the Musée de l'Orangerie. It was so amazing seeing Picasso, Renoir and Monet paintings up close that I had only previously viewed in books. Here is a close up of the first page: 
 Here is a close up of the second page. The stamp with the journaling block is from Close to My Heart. Aren't the paintings breathtaking? I'm so happy they photographed well. Now I can remember them forever. 
 This adorable hot chocolate cup is from the Cricut Winter Frolic cartridge. I added some white details using my gel pen. I used three pieces of twine for the bow. The hot cocoa card is from October Afternoon. 
 The yellow paper is from the Bazzil Basics Swiss Dots Collection. The velvet roses are from Making Memories. I wish I had more of those! They don't make them anymore and I was saving them for a special page. 
 Oh these flowers were so fun to make! Cosmo Cricket has little adhesive circles called "Gluebers" and you take ribbon (these are from My Mind's Eye, Stella Rose) and place it in a circular pattern. The instructions say that a kid can make them. It's true. No sewing. It seriously took less than a minute to put these together. I highly recommend adding Gluebers to your adhesive collection. I placed a brad in the center of the flowers. 
 I had to ask the boy how to say " Hot Chocolate and Art" in French. He helped me with the title. :)
 This Cricut Gypy Font has to be one of my favorites. You receive it when you buy a Gypsy. I use it so much. 
Have a lovely weekend!
