Pictures from Pour l’Amour Du Scrap in Lille, France

Written by Nathalie Kalbach. Posted in Photos, The Traveling Artist

Last weekend I taught for several days at the Convention Pour l’Amour Du Scrap in Lille,  France. It was a lovely organized event – lot’s of small stores with yummy treats and the organizer did a gorgeous job in the set up of the designer show cases, classrooms and other displays- Loved it.

Excuse the grainy pictures – I didn’t take my big camera with me 🙂 It was a lot of fun to spent time with Birgit Koopsen, Sharon Laakkonen, Rachel Greig and Irene Tan and her hubs Denny, as well as Sharons wonderful husband Bill.

Here is a quick shot of my students Birgit and Benedicte playing in the Free Your Creativity Class

Here are Rachel and Irene playing with spray paint- LOL

The wonderful Rachel having her students play 🙂

and here is Sharon playing with her students 🙂

And Birgit having a short chat with me 😉


The sweet France Papillon doing Make and Takes – gorgeous tags!

The wonderful Tanya Watts– I am always happy when I see her 🙂

a nice dinner on the last day

I wish I could have bought all of those at a booth at the convention – looovee!!!

I s

the hotel we were staying was the icing of the cake- soo beautiful! The hotel was former a hospice built in ….1462

You see below the bar – which was covered by a glass roof – so amazing

and then you sit in the bar at night…the former courtyard and this is your look – isn’t that amazing?


Thanks to the Organizers of the event, as well as to Evelien for having me! I had a great time.

Have an amazing day
