gothic arch challenge - " tickets "

***
This is my entry for this week's Gothic Arch challenge. The theme this time is " Tickets "
I found the lovely lady in my " travel in Vogue " book and used vintage style paper.
The stickers are from Cavallini & Co and the stamp is a new one showing a French love poem ( so I'm told ! )
Do maximise to see what the exasperated lady is saying. I stained the paper with tea.
Great fun again and thank you for the challenge !

  11. Just to say hello to another Hampshire lass! and thank you for visiting my blog and your comments especially regarding your cat. Goodness me it is so heart wrenching when the go missing, I think Miss Sage was spooked by fireworks or she was locked in somewhere. She is quite timid when it comes to other humans - apart from us she especially adores my husband.

    I look forward to reading your blogs in the future, I like this project with the Gothic Arch, very inspirational indeed.

  13. Oh hi Joanna.. love your cat's name Miss Sage.

    Suzie, I'd love to know what gorgeous silk nighties she has in that trunk.

    I like to think that this is the same Emily from my three muses challenge... this is George & Emily a few years on ...a second honeymoon perhaps ?
