"Flowers for mum", -Les Papiers de Pandore, and guest spot at Imaginarium Designs
'Morning all and a happy Wednesday to you!
We are already more than half way to the week end...yeehhay!
Today I have a new layout to show you with Les Papiers de Pandore.
And I'm also thrilled to be the guest designer at Imaginarium Designs today (or yesterday aussie time...lol!)
I will start with the layout I made using Julie Blanc's latest gorgeous collection "Promenons Nous". I am a little late sharing it as it already went up on the blog a couple of days ago.
I do not understand what happens with the collection plaques that I posted, but I at least get a message saying "OverBlog" and no pictures.I do hope all of you can see them though!
If you get the same problem ,...the solution is to go over to the LPdP and look at the collection pictures there!
Even this time I have used the lighter hues of the papers to make a spring layout:
I had been grocery shopping (as always!) one day and when I came home Beatrice was waiting for me at the gate, a little anxious, with a small flower bunch in her hand. She had just arrived on the bus from school and while she was waiting for me she'd picked some flowers. The look on her face I think is because she was worried I would be upset she had picked the very first flowers of the year...We took these precious snow drops inside and put them in a vase and we were both enjoying them for days!
Quite a few gorgeous paper layers here. The colours are so soft and easy to use. This is also one of the layouts I made while on holiday and just had to add the title and a couple of finishing touches when I came home to my stash. There are several more to come.
Maybe some of you would like a closer look?...
I used the big clock from the elements sheet. I seem to be 'into' clocks at the moment!
Hi hi...I am no good at keeping the time though...
These little bird houses come from the same sheet. I have just added a button to each and some twine.
I did something similar stitching the banner.
All the edges were distressed with my edge scraper, but I did not apply any ink because I wanted to keep my layout 'soft' with no hard edges,... so to speak.
Previously I said that you would soon see my rolled up paper strips again,...and voila: here they are.
But I think they add a small punch for no buck at all... Just sooo simple.
I also added some liquid pearl for decorations.
The brown letter 'stickers' are from the same elements sheet. There are at least two of each letters and more of some vowels etc. This style is all the rage right now.
In a day or two I will be back with a new LpdP layout that I just finished for Color Combos Galore .
My other news today is that I am featured over at the Australian blog of
They are kind enough to be sponsoring the whole DT over at Once Upon A...Sketch.
I just love their products and consider myself very fortunate to be using it!
Here is a small collage of the projects of mine that you can see on the Imaginarium Designs blog at the moment.

(Once there you can even click on the photos and they will be very large.)
To those of you who have arrived at the end of this long post I will say 'well done!'
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
