A birthday layout using Papiers de Pandore, and Two Peas Top Three!!

It has been quite some time since I shared a layout using the beautiful French made papers from Les Papiers de Pandore. 
When it was time to scrap this precious photo of DD Alexandra celebrating her 18th birthday I immediately thought of the lovely soft hues of Maison de Campagne. I wanted to make a feminine layout that was not too laden with embellishments or layers, to highlight the photo of Alex with her grandmother.

I used different patterned papers from the collection and also a couple of the very useful stamps that are available.

I did not want to cover up too much of the rose on the patterned paper. i decided to cut around it and 'lift it' over the photo. That way it would add to the dimension of the layout and it would still be visible.

I used a piece of green ribbon that I looped to give the impression of leaves.

I raised my stamped title with pop dots to make it stand out against the background. I even added a Zva Creative bling swirl that I cut into smaller  pieces. Sometimes the big swirls can be too overpowering.

A few days ago I was lucky enough to have a page spotlighted among the top three at Two Peas. It was one of my pages I did for Color Combos galore some time back. maybe you remember it?

That's all for today .
Hope you are enjoying the sunshine!


  1. Wow ! The picture is great, full of tenderness and complicity. And congrats for the use of French stamps !

  2. Wonderful work here Bente! This page is a stunner for sure!! So much lovely detail & that paper is just to die for :) No probs about not replying to my e mail...I have 1 600 emails in my inbox right now - no jokes - so I know how it all gets too overwhelming at times & I just can't get to it myself at times too or I'd never be able to scrap or blog! So sorry that you haven't been feeling well...I hope you are okay & I am very jealous at the thought of you spending 3 weeks in the South of France - gosh that sounds like a dream destination. Sure you need it at this stage to keep your sanity! Have a wonderful time away - all great artists need a time of reflection away from their creations & you will come back stronger than ever :)
