a spring themed book

Here is the cover of a spring themed book, finished this off last night--will share some of the layouts with you this week.  The thing is, I don't know much French, so relied on Google Translate for the text . . . not sure if it's accurate or not! 
The chipboard and patterned paper are Glitz, the collage image and ephemera are from Altered Pages.

Some challenges:
Glitz --April 2012 spring challenge 
Simon Says Stamp--sketch challenge
The Shabby Tea Room--April Showers

Will be blog visiting tomorrow--see you then!  There are still a couple more days left to enter for my spring blog candy, too:  HERE!
