The Panthéon

Today I am sharing a layout I made with  photos from my daughter’s trip to Paris. Kit is an O-scraps collaboration called Parisian Holiday. Template from Precepts and Promises Template Pack 1 Designed by: Precepts and Promises.  Font is Andalus.


The Panthéon was originally an abbey dedicated to St. Genevieve, the patron saint of Paris. At the start of the French Revolution, the new Revolutionary government ordered it to be changed from a church to a mausoleum for the interment of great Frenchmen.
