CCG 201 Beauty in full Bloom. "Pink Paislee Sweetness"

Hello dear readers! 
First of all thanks a lot for all your beautiful comments on my previous posts that I had pre-scheduled before leaving for my vacation. 
I am SO looking forward to having my computer back so I can come and visit you all again and see what you have been up to! Today I am sitting at MCDonalds in Brignoles trying to update on a borrowed laptop. I am feeling really challenged.....! But I am grateful for the hamburger giant for the free internet!!!
Time for a new layout based on the current Color Combo.

I used a collection from Pink Paislee called Sweetness.
The papers here have all the colours included in the combo, but contains maybe a tad too much of the red/dark pink. Therefore I decided not to include it in the reveal as an example for our members.
In the photo you can see Beatrice smelling our beautiful peonies.
The journaling says 
"We were in the garden and I wanted to take pictures of you with the peonies. It is very clear from your expression here that this was not the first photo I took"...LOL!

Here is a picture of the current combo and the recipe for making a layout this week.

Lovely, isn't it?

I used a polka dot ribbon as  was one of the design elements to be included and I let it border my large polka dot circle. The mulberry flowers had just the right colours too.

The title is made from raw chipboard that I painted and inked around the edges. I am so grateful for the sposorship we are receiving from Imaginarium Designs!

I used glitter glue to add some interest to the pretty chipboard elements from Imaginarium Designs.
I added some liquid pearl to the diecut circle.

Finally I adde two pins in metal to finish up the ingredients for this weeks recipe.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog!!

In about a weeks time I shall be back in Sweden and I will have computer access so I can come visit all your lovely blogs. That is sure something I miss when I am away!!
