Even though it’s the second-smallest continent by size, Europe more than makes up for its area with its iconic landmarks and sights, stunning cities, cuisine, culture and so much more. Blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu had her London and Paris memories on her mind with these chic Europe scrapbook layouts — give them a gander!
The London & Paris Theme Pack brought me back to the times when I visited those cities long time ago. In London, I stayed at a hotel near Paddington Station because it sounded perfect for me — a teddy bear collector. It was around the end of February and may not have been the perfect timing to visit there, yet I enjoyed misty winter walks and admired the magical atmosphere of London.
When I visited Paris, it was the beautiful summertime, and all the historic buildings and monuments I saw were breathtaking and photo-worthy. My only regret is I didn’t taken enough photos because I was not a scrapbooker at that time!
