Pine Ridge Treasures French Countryside Blog Hop

Some of my favorite memories from when I lived in Europe was the time I spent in France.  Now admittedly most of my time was spent in the cities but I do recall the beauty of the countryside on our way to Paris.  When I was there, it was spring and the flowers were just coming to life.  So beautiful that I had to join in on the fun.

I actually remembered to take a picture of my kit.  A lot of it didn't fit my memories of France so I put them aside to use later.  And use them I will especially those black glass saucers.  Never seen those before and they have such a ancient feeling to them.

I did however snatch up those larger lilac crystals and make up a pair of earrings.  The heart dangles are also from my kit.

And you know me, I couldn't resist the black glass pearls from ZNetShows.  This necklace actually pays tribute to the beautiful lights in Paris.  And black pearls are so tres chic.

This was such a great kit and I know that I will be making more with it in the future.  Now be sure to check out what the other designers have come up with.
