French Manor Blog Hop

Welcome to the French Manor Blog Hop
If you did not arrive here from Lori's blog, please go back or start at the beginning with Jana
Gaby - ME - You are Here!

"Ma Maison est ta Maison"
"Mi Casa es su Casa"
better know as "Mi Casa su Casa"
I created a Two-Page Lo of my grand baby Lauren and my Maltipoo Tiny
I bought my grand babies a play house, but since they live far away and only visit a couple of times a year, the playhouse, when my grand babies are not here, it belongs to Tiny and Moto (Shar-Pei)!
So who is saying Mi Casa es su Casa?  you be the judge!

Lauren is holding on her hand Tiny's toy. He is looking at her like saying HELLOOO!!!
not only are you in my house, take over grandma and grandpa's attention, but take my toy?!!!!
For the picture matting I used the window (pg 36) enlarged to fit the 4x6 pictures using DS
I also cut the red part of the window/mat using hide contour on all other parts and the bottom I had to cut by hand since there in no layer available for that part of the window.

The Chandelier (pg 37), mirror (pg 35), chairs (pg 29) using shift, and table (pg 33) were cut at 3"
I had to cut the chairs again with pattern paper to match the sofa because there is no layer available and hiding contour will not work.
The sofa was cut at 2.5" (pg 32)

For the mirror on (pg 35) which cuts it in 3 layers,  I used all three. I glossed the tiny one and applied aluminum paper to the middle part to make it look like a mirror.

I used glossy accents on the clock, mirror and chandelier.
The letters were cut using the Blackletter cart.
For the journaling tag I used the layer of the screen found on page 54. I used hide contour in order to not waste paper and cut it in 3 different sizes.
I popped dotted the sofa and table.
I used  ribbon and a buckle across the LO.
Finally, I used a MS go around the page punch called "French Lace" around the entire LO.

You are at the end!!
