CKCB Challenge #1- Farmers' Market.

Welcome to my part of the CKCB Members Blog Hop.
You probably hopped over from Lisa's blog Recklinghausen Musings
 but if your arriving here was pure serendipity 
why not stay a while and join in the blog hop with us.
The CKCB #1 June challenge was to create a LO
 celebrating Farmers' Markets and the great local produce which you can find there.
When I first read the idea of the challenge
 I knew it would be a great opportunity to use
some very special papers which I have been "stroking" for some time.
Graphic 45's "French Country" range

and to share with you our favourite stall at the Sunday market
 in Port en Bessin, Normandie
 where you can always find a veritable feast of local artisan cheeses.

I hope you've enjoyed your brief visit to Normandy,
time now to hop off to Julene's blog 
If you lose track of just where you've hopped you can find the full list
