Color Combos 195 -You Make Me Smile

We are now at the very beginning of June..., so what can be more fitting for a theme at CCG this month than...SUMMER !
And the extra challenge this week is to use balloons on your layouts. I am still in love with balloons as a design element. I wonder if they will be like banners and other must havs, that they will just stay and stay... I hope so, because they look so cute!

This is my take on the combo and designers challenge this week!

I just love the inspirational photo this week. It really screams Summer and wonderful vacations to me.

Originally I had a big blue flower in the middle of my layout. You can see it in the photo on the CCG reveal page.
I decided to remove it to  open up the design, and give the photos some more space. I really wanted to use that flower but I do think this is better.

The cute little bird stamp is from Les Papier de Pandore stamped on a Prima packaging.
The balloons I cut from a Webster's Pages sheet.

The super pretty hand made doilies are from Leeann Pearce (Thank you, you awsome lady), and I just love them.
You can see Leeanns Etsy HERE

Some more close ups for you!

Thats all for now. Thanks!


  1. a very nice summer layout ! Love the colours and the balloons !

  2. You do brights so incredibly well Mrs Fagerberg!! love those doilies, such a great way to add vibrant colour. Really clever to use book page between the cardboard and the Hambly, looks totally cool! xxx

  3. This is wonderful Bente - one of your trademark layered layouts & you rocked the colours! Hope I can do mine tomorrow - the deadline is always so tight for CCG - not even a week!! I laughed out loud at your comment about the cards - which I have just posted BTW :) :)

  4. Great Layout Bente and while I like the blue flower I agree it looks even better without! Hugs Tx

  5. Love, love, love this! The mix is perfect with those pics and I like the way you used the string 'floating along' for the balloon!
