Les Papiers de Pandore "Maison de Campagne" "Petits Secrets de Famille"

Today I have a layout to share that I made with the new papers from Les Papieres de Pandore.
These papers have so many lovely patterns that it is difficult not to want to do a lot of cutting.

This layout started out fine and it looked totally different from how it is now, but suddenly with no warning( I was completely stuck. I guess it happens to all of us.
I tried to finish it but had to give up. Last night I decided I would try again. I tore off layer after layer and decided to go simple on this.
I think I managed to salvage some of it and there is also a  little story behind the page.
When we are in the South of France in the Summers we like to take short walks. One is down the gravel road to the local wine chateau. I will confess now that we have made a habit of stopping and pinching a few grapes now and then. They taste very nice and it feels very exotic for us Scandinavians. We are of course very careful not to disturb anything...I hope they won't see this and send the police when we go there in July! :-D

I cut the sweet border from one of the papers.I added rhinestones to the green circles.

I added a red Prima flower and leaves. In the middle I put a wooden bird.
The title is also from the same sheet as the border. It even includes journaling spots.
The title means 'Small Family Secrets' and I thought it was appropriate for my confession!

A shot from the side so you can see the way I put pop dots under some of the embellishments.
The yellow and green butterflies are also cut outs from the collection.

It really is a very pretty collection and very versatile. I think this brown patterned sheet go very well with my photos. I am in the middle of my next Papiers de Pandore layout right now and the collection really is a delight to work with!

That was all from me for now.
