Color Combos Galore 193 Time Together

Time again to share my weekly project for Color Combos Galore.

For those who don't know about CCG, it is a great place to be inspired and to even inspire others.
Every week a new combo is revealed that contains four colours and a design prompt.

This is what you get to play with this week:

GORGEOUS, isn't it?

Love those colours!
I rummaged through my stash thinking that I would have SO MUCH to choose from, while in fact I did not. The pinks were too pink or the greens had too much lime in them. I am quite ok with the ones I found in the end , and I do love that Cosmo C woodgrain paper.
The black paper with white dots is by Webster's Pages.

I did a lot of fiddling with my papers and that was what took me the longest time...

That cute little white doily is courtesy of the fantastic Leeann Pearce whom I admire much!!
Other than that my clusters consist of mini roses, leaves and pink chocolate wrappers.

I hope you can see from the next  picture that the layout is not flat but has quite a lot of dimension.

I added twine behind the black foam stickers for my title to help create more balance on the layout.
And I wanted the twine-lines to town down the stark black of the letters.

Beatrice took this photo of Alexandra and me last week end when we went to visit with my sister in Denmark. Not the most flattering one maybe, but fun!

I matted the b/w photo with black cardstock.

The designer challenge this week was to journal on your page.

Mine says;
"Time goes quickly. For the longest time we have talked about you going to apply for university in England or Scotland. Now that that you were accepted and a date has been set it is getting very close.
I don't think I am ready yet..."

The big clock embellishment was cut from an older Prima paintable. I added some pink pearls to go with the theme.

Well, I am off to work now ladies.
Hope you feel inspired to join in the fun at CCG and I must say I love reading all the beautiful comments you leave me.

Have a lovely day!
