OMS and pencil crayons



sorry I haven't posting in a while... somehow, every year around summer, I don't feel as creative as I would during winter or fall. But I was recently invited by Thanh from "Make it sweet and Neat" to her Crafts and Food card making session with her friends =) It was so much fun!!! She's so talented! You guys should visit her blog ASAP.

here are some of the cards we made!

anywho, TGF is having a challenge where we have to use pencil crayons, and the only way I colour with pencil crayons is with OMS (odourless mineral spirits). The only thing about OMS I'm concerned about is the harmful mineral vapours when inhaled or ingested, and it can cause irritation when it  comes contact with your skin. My OMS container doesn't have a protective sponge top cover or pump to prevent the vapours from escaping... so I think I have to transfer it to a glass pump. I'm just not sure where to buy one... maybe IKEA?

so anyways, here's my entry for TGF - pencil crayons and feeling sketchy!

Last day in Paris... Hello Amsterdam

Sigh our vacation is finally coming to an end. Today is our last day in Paris... Last time to see the Eiffel Tower and last breakfast in the city of love :)

Sun rising over the Eiffel Tower. 

Last pain du chocolat :(

Photo of Charles de Gaulle airport...

And guess what folks?!? I found another macaron store here in the airport :) it's by   
Ladurée! It's by far, hands down the best macarons I've ever tasted in my life. I couldn't believe my mouth!

Hahha Anywho, we then stopped over at Amsterdam airport - Schiphol for a few hours :) I have to stay Amsterdam has the funniest, nicest and friendliest people! I just laughed my way through the security check lol
I hope to come back and visit Amsterdam soon. Definitely one of my top places to visit :)

One thing about the flight home from Amsterdam that was great was the food! I know I'm super weird... But I love airplane food!!! I love how everything is separated into their own little compartment lol we even got ice cream on the KLM royal dutch airlines (KLM stands for Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij airlines .... Now say that 3x in a row lol) 

Anyways... I can't wait to go home... My legs are so sore from 2 weeks of walking non-stop... I need to go home, work on my vacation scrapbooks and made some cards! Xoxox

Paris day 6

bonjour tout le monde!!
I'm sorry for my daily blog posts about my trip to Europe. It's the one of the ways for me to look back and remember what my hubby and I did that specific day. But anywho... 
Today the hubby and I had to wake up extra early to line up at the Eiffel Tower, so we can queue up. It began to rain hard when we got out of the hotel, so instead of walking the 15 minutes... We got lazy and took a taxi instead hahahaha lame! I know! Lol

So when we got to the tower, there was already a small queue. 
Here's a photo from the underside of the tower. 

There were probably 150-200 people ahead of us at the line when we got there 15 minutes after the tower opened, but it was still 4x shorter than the a couple of days ago; when the queue itself coiled like a long snake around 2 legs of the Eiffel Tower. 

Oh, Here's a photo of the bust of Gustave Eiffel, the engineer and architect who created the famous Eiffel Tower. 

Anywho, even with the shorter line, it still took us over an hour to get to the top of the Eiffel Tower. 
Here's some photos of the city below. 

Champ de mars. 

We then had lunch at le bailli de suffren restaurant beside the Eiffel Tower.
I had, Pâté de Campagne (country pâté) and spaghetti bolognaise (spaghetti bolognese); and my hubby had jambon, fromage suisse, tomate, et le beurre dans une baguette française (ham, swiss cheese, tomato, butter in a baguette) and sauce au chocolat aux noisettes avec des bananes crêpe (hazelnut chocolate and banana crepe)

 But the best part of the meal was the croissants that was served to us before our dishes came!! Omg it was so good!! The best croissants I've ever had in my life. 

We then toured around some more in Paris, swinging by the moulin rouge windmill. Unfortunately, it began to pour so hard that the rain was going sideways.  Lol it was so mental! I couldn't believe my eyes! It was fine and cloudy one minutes and the next second it was raining cats and dogs! 
At the end of the day, we decided to go  to Le Notre Paris to buy some more macarons.... The macarons from Le Notre Paris were so amazing!!! The Flavours - cherry, some French liquor (It starts with an M), apricot, jasmine with gold flakes and chocolate.

Anyways, tomorrow is out last day in the city of love :) see you then!
