The Stamp Man ATC Swap - Hopes and Dreams - and dreams do come true

My hope and dream is to go to Paris. I can't believe I have never been. I studied Toulouse Lautrec at college and even then wanted to go visit the Moulin Rouge and see Les Folies Bergere. I just loved the poster of his muse Jane Avril who was one of the star dancers at the Moulin Rouge in the 1890's.

This is my ATC for the Stamp Man swap and my interpretation of my hope and dream to visit Paris one day.

Distress Inks - Seedless Preserve, Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick, Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire
Stamps - Tim Holtz Mini Classics, Paper Relics Birthday Fortune
Tim Holtz paper stash - Vintage Shabby, Lost and Found

I have decided that I am going to try and make an ATC when I make a card or project, you know what it's like you always have bits and pieces left over, why not use them to make smaller pieces of art? Perhaps you could do the same and enter our swap this month. Pop over to the main blog and see what you need to do, it's so easy.

I wish that your hopes and dreams come true for the month of March.

Let go of the past and go for the future.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you've imagined.
- Henry David Thoreau

Update 12.50
This was posted at 12.00 mid-day. How spooky is this???????
My husband rang me at 12.20 and told me I have to keep Friday 17th March clear in my diary. I had arranged to work that day and told him it would be difficult.
My birthday is on the 19th and guess what???????
He has arranged to take me to Paris for the weekend as my birthday present.
He didn't know anything about the ATC - honest.
I am now so excited.
