Here is my page for the April Lyrical Challenge.

I chose to scrap about my most romantic anniversary ever.... We spent our 35th anniversary in 1990 in Paris... in April!! Of course the song "April In Paris" was perfect for this challenge.

Keystone Scrap's World Traveler - Paris kit was perfect for this page.
