"C'est La Vie" LO (2nd DT Work) with Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #76 - Embossing

Hi, everyone!  It's time again for Kaboodle Doodles (KDCB) Weekly Challenge with Embossing as Challenge #76.

Winner to be drawn randomly with prize of $10 voucher to The Paper Shelter on Tues, July 26, 2011 at US timezone.  Participants have until Sun., July 24, 2011 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog. 

Now, to my submitted work. . . This is my 2nd week and my 2nd DT Work with them.  I found it hard to incorporate the challenge requirement since I still don't have a machine or bug with embossing folders.  Luckily,  I checked my stash and found a cardstock with embossing from Making Memories.  This one, I utilized on (1) of my LOs for the DT submission.  I also procured an embosser from a Japan Store and made use of this on another LO which I'm sharing for this challenge.  Here are the (2) LOs:
