T stands for…..time for some photos!

I haven't been very productive lately apart from things I can't show you yet!(Swap pages and DT stuff)
I do have some journal pages partly completed and I have attempted to make a card with some white space for the new Paper Artsy challenge.
 Not sure whether I will link though…
What I will do is link to Bluebeard and Elizabeths blog for T stands for Tuesday though!
Our trip to Paris didn't quite end as we would have liked, we both ended up with a horrible bug which as left us feeling quite low in energy! A walk to to the newspaper shop at the end of the road was my first outing on Sunday - a week after our return and it really tired me! We have been out a couple of times since at it is getting better!
Paris though, was lovely!
Our hotel was quite close to the tram line that goes around the outskirts of the city so we took advantage of our one day travel pass on the first day to ride most of it. 


We came across a modern park near the end of one line.


It was next to the river Seine.

 Then it was back to the tram and to La Defence - modern buildings and sculptures…and shops!

Hubby spotted a FNAC store - music on his mind!
The fun Miro statues always make me smile.
We had a savoury crepe for our evening meal, with water!
This is the first time I remembered to take a photo of my food or drink and as you can see I was halfway through before I remembered this time!

I'll be back with more photos soon!

Thanks for looking, Chris

ps I have decided to link to the White Space Paper Artsy Blog Challenge!

I adore that white space card, but am still worried about both you and hubby. It was the worst of times, even though you had planned it out so well in advance. I was saddened by all that happened while you were away, and hope both of you are now well on the mend.

Thanks for sharing that food, water, and photo experience of your first day in Paris. What fun the two of you must have had that day!

Your card is lovely. She's a lovely image. Take care. Barbxx

Very nice CAS card and I hope you are on the mend now Chris.

Great photos of Paris and a nice memory for me as we went there in April a lot of years ago.

Take care

Love Chrissie xx

i like all the circle stamps here - you can´t have too many!
what a pity that bugs seem to be frequent followers of travel recently... i hope you are on the mend, take care!

Better late than never (I had a busy day yesterday).
You white space card is beautiful! I really like it.
What a shame about that bug. Many pèople get bugs on holiday. One reason (I believe) is the flight. Stale air full of bugs recirculating all the time. And another reason is that the body fights off any bugs when working and in your normal routine. As soon as you relax and do something ddifferent, the bug decides to appear. I have experienced that so many times!
I hope you are feeling better now.
Thanks for sharing photos of Paris. Keep them coming. I love seeing them.
Thanks for visiting,
Have a good week,
Lisca

I'm so sorry to hear that you were sick for your trip, what a nasty thing!! My last bug put me down for near 8 weeks, what a world!! Your photos are amazing, so many interesting things to see!! Hope you get to feeling better soon. hugs :)

Sandy said...

So sorry you became ill - sounds like it really wiped you out!
I loved everyone of your photos and look forward to seeing more. When the French do modern, they really do modern!!!!!
Love the design of your card - I think you have to really envision something in order to leave lots of white space.
Sending you healing thoughts -
Sandy xx

Lovely design on your card--I find it nearly impossible to leave white space anywhere! Great to see your photos, and so sorry you fell ill. Horrible to be sick anytime, let alone on vacation! Hugs!

Happy T day...really late!

Love your photos of Paris, La Defense is my favourite part. We stayed in 13th near the terminus of the T3 tram last weekend.
Sorry you were poorly when you got back, blooming germs get everywhere!!

Craftyfield said...

Lovely card with enough white space for the challenge but enough colours to make it interesting!
Shame about your bug, sadly it's going around and incredibly contagious.
