Paris Shadowbox

Here is the first of the weekend projects that I was able to accomplish.  I bought this little wood shadowbox from the Unique Thrift Stores last week.  It was just a plain pine box.  I decided to give it a French-y makeover:
I gave it a couple of coats of white paint.  While that was drying, I used some French script scrapbook paper for my background.  Then I popped over to The Graphics Fairy and printed out some random French images.  The Eiffel Tower is actually from a necklace I got at Forever 21 a couple of years ago.  My boys love that I used Scrabble pieces to spell out Paris.
There is another small charm on the lower right corner - not sure if you can see it.  It has a cameo look to it.  The finishing touches were Marie Antoinette and the hand-stamped little French crown at the top.

I love the touch of French whimsy it adds to my livingroom!

So pretty! I love all of the elements and you gave me an idea for using some letter game pieces I purchased awhile ago -- thanks for sharing this!
