Thoughts of Paris

Today I'd like to share a very special swap indeed.

I was lucky to go to the Stampin' Up! convention in Brussels,
it was the weekend of the terrible events in Paris.
We were very fortunate to have the company of some amazing people from Europe,
including some from France.

This was made by Belinda Passelaigue,
a gorgeous little matchbook style folder
using some of my very favourite stamps....


None of us could predict the events that unfolded,
and it was with heavy heart that we continued on the Saturday morning,
with a hand holding tear filled minutes silence.



The gift inside Belinda's swap was not only extremely generous,
but could not have been more poignant under the circumstances,
a little charm of the Eiffel Tower ....


Thank you Belinda


My heart goes out to everyone affected by the terrible events around the world.



Have a lovely weekend
stay safe
be kind to yourself and each other
