Paper Soiree at Paper Tales

Last month marked the first get together of a new monthly class called Paper Soiree at Paper Tales in San Diego.  Eight lovely ladies signed up to swap an altered compo-
sition book and partici-pate in a short make and take.  This month we are swapping decorated cones, and here is the cone that I decorated to swap.  The theme of the group is French, shabby chic, which encompasses all of the things that I love working with!  It is so fun to find other ladies close by that like the same style of paper arts, and Paper Tales has such wonderful supplies that fit right in to the theme. Michelle, the owner, is a fellow Francofile so I always love to see what new French items she has.  Merci Michelle. J'aime votre boutique petit papier!

Happy Pink Saturday to all the pinkies, thanks so much for visiting my blog!

The cone is simply awesome. Well...nothing simple about it! Did the cone go into the book or did I totally misunderstand?
