city of lights layout

i know.  2 days in a row.  insane?  (okay i scheduled this post at the same time as yesterday's.  sshhh...)
i have a mad, mad love for my cameo.  i have hardly had time to scrapbook the past couple of months.  but when i saw this download in the silhouette store, i knew exactly what i wanted to do with it.  as is often the case, i have a layout idea first & then choose a photo.  i chose one that i had been holding onto forever.  it's one i took of my daughter pre-digi days.  a favorite photo of her. i haven't used it because if i messed it up, i would have to hunt down the negative.  (the beauty of the digital age!)  she'll be 13 next week, and looking at this photo makes me a little sad!  where did the time go?  ANYWAY.... on to the layout.
 i cut it out in several pattern papers and then pieced together. it was not a terribly time consuming layout.  i suspect you will see a lot of layouts around the web using this silhouette cut because it is FABULOUS!  i used the studio calico kit, city of lights and the sorbonne & louvre add ons.
