I have always wanted to see Le Tour de France as I love watching it on tv.This month's "Kraft it up" was to scrap something you'd like to do. Firstly I took photos of the race from the television.Then I used rubber stamps of aeroplane,Eiffel Tower and the bike riders. I've used Scrapmatts new Layered Bridge painted white and featuring a cut out rider.I've used magic mount to make it more 3D.Next,I made toothpick flags and used strips of airmail patterned paper around the photos.I finished with washi tape cameras and filmstrip.I doodled the aeroplane trail and the edges of the road.I've also included a close up of the bridge.

The word is BEYOND,so I've used 2 photos of a bridge in Ireland,a before and after photo really.The white windmill got my interest then it turned out to be a modern built restaurant. I've used the 3 colours of black and white and red,however the quote by T.S.Elliot was appropriate so I included it.

Archiscraps first challenge ends on 15th July at midnight. So far we have one entry BUT I'd like to see more. As LLeyton Hewitt says "C'mon" All you are required to do is produce a layout featuring the colours or shapes or anything else the Duomo inspires you to do.I'm sure you all have a brown/rust/cream layout somewhere.IT DOESN"T HAVE TO FEATURE ARCHITECTURE, it could have a sepia photo of Grandma etc. PLease upload via the comments section on archiscraps of course.

1,2,3 this month are requiring purple,chevrons and the word "my". I've used purple cardstock to create chevrons by measuring and cutting(reminded me of high school geometry lessons).The chipboard has a 60's "flowerpower" feel to it, so I've used a doiley and flowers to embellish. This photo was taken 3 years ago at a Scrapbooking retreat I attended.
