January WOTG La Belle Vie

The January WOTG kit featured La Belle Vie.  It has a rather romantic feel to it.  The first layout is pretty close to the directions listed in the wotg.  I made some paper changes... and really enjoyed creating this layout.

La Belle Vie layout one
The second layout is inspired from the idea book.  Loved that page and tried to duplicate it. 
La Belle Vie layout two inspired from the idea book
The final layout was inspired by a card... I think this is my favorite layout ... 
La Belle Vie Layout three inspired from a card that I saw but can no
longer find.  Would like to give credit  when I find it again.
