Tu Es Jolie!

Hello, Hello! It's Monday and that means Simon is here with some new inspiration and a new challenge. And with that challenge comes a chance to win $50 to spend at


So, what's going on over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this go around?
I'm glad you asked...
This week we are taking a trip to Paris and channeling all things French. 
This was a bit of a challenge for me as the closest experience I have of anything French is almost failing my foreign language class in school. 

But, this time I am armed with some gorgeous French General embellishments and a little canvas. Perhaps I will have more luck with France this go around. Let's see what we can come up with here, shall we?
 Ah, she looks like a little French lady, yes? I believe she will work nicely here as well!
 Now for a bit of texture:
 oooooh, pretty!
 A little dab of ink here, a little spray there....
 Glitter time!
 Lookin' good!
 My little French girl looks quite happy with a salvaged mirror and a bit of twine...
 And of course, my gorgeous French General Ribbon Embellishments:
 And thanks to Google, I have found my title... Beautiful!
 You are... ( I do hope Google was right - lol)
 And there we have it!
 A sweet little canvas, embellished with some lovely goodies...
That whoever looks at and sees their reflection in the little mirror, will be reminded...
You are beautiful...
Perhaps I can do this French thing after all :)

I can't wait to see how you are inspired this week! Get crafty. Get French. And link-it-up!

And, if you want to try a little canvas of your own, a complete supply list is below: (affiliate links used)
