    Great use of the color red. I can’t tell if it is fabric or paper but great whichever.

  9. Yet another wonderful AJJ entry, and incredible photos of Monaco. It’s amazing you went so many places on this trip. Did you visit the Vatican, too? Guess I’ll find out if it comes up in photos, but for now I’ll just click on each photo montage and enjoy living your relived memories.

  11. I was particularly taken by the diamond patterned vest over the chain mail on the knight. It seems so whimsical next to the armor. Then I noticed that the diamond pattern is part of the coat of arms. Your posts are always so much fun – like a mini scavenger hunt.

  12. Oh I love this last page you created, remembering your Monaco visit, dear Patty. Love the red and blue, even I`m not much of a color girl, when creating, this looks so very beautiful, and the gorgeous fabric?-handmade paper? or ?? makes such a luxury feeling about the whole page / visit, which I`m sure is also present in that tiny country!!
    Wonderful photos, again, -love the harbor view and statues !!!
    Hugs to you, dear, thank you for your loving PM`s – I send you longarmed hugs and kisses.
    Dorthe, xoxo

  14. I’ve always been a bit of a Princess Grace fan. How fun to see that area in person. It does look fascinating. That page is perfect. I don’t see you often work in red but it was made for this spot!
