A friend of mine has been on my mind lately.

Once upon a time she and her family went to Paris.

I enjoyed seeing her pictures years ago and listening to her tales.

Right now she's probably doing mundane chores like dishes or washing clothes....

I'd like to remind her of her exciting trip and how God blessed her so! 

That was a moment she can personally bank on, you know?

I used the eye-popping colors from Inspired By #32.

Heidi Swapp papers and ruby and gold embossing powders were my go-to supplies here.

Also, this gorgeous sketch : Waltzingmouse Sketch #106

gave me a wonderful starting point!

Have a blessed day~
