I have made another Pink Paislee layout to try and use up some of all the papers I've been hanging on to from the previous collections, now before the new collection start hitting the shelves.
I have said before that I love their designs and I have already seen a lot that needs to come home with me as soon at it arrives at the shops.
This layout is made using the latest sketch by my friend Nadia at Once Upon A...Sketch.
I also entered it for the Pink Paislee Hot Hues July challenge, which is open for a couple of days more.
AUGUST 15th CHALLENGE

We have some wonderful guest designers featured this month from our dear sponsors;
The special invited guest artist for the month of August is the gorgeous Anabelle O'Malley.
I am so impressed with all the pages made by our talented guests and really advise you to click your way over there to have a look!!
I will now share some close ups:
In the photo you see my youngest daughter Beatrice and a little friend she made in Provence.
I die cut a sheet of yellow pp and matted my photo on a light blue piece.
All the edges on my layout were machine stitched and I added A LOT of mulberry and Prima flowers.
Our sponsor for the whole year is the awesome Imaginarium Designs. I used a branch and a small swirl of their chipboard on this layout. I painted them with gesso and then white paint mixed with yellow to match the colours in my layout.I even dotted them with some liquid pearl as well as using some to make some small 'pearl swirls' for my flower cluster. The red fabric letter stickers are from Prima.
Some may remember that I earlier this year cut up my daughter's t-shirt to make some banners for my Color Combos Galore layout. The banner here is made with the remains of thet t-shirt...lol! I don't think she has noticed yet.... Well, I had already ruined it so I figured I might as well use it ti hi hi hi...
I stitched my banner down with some messy stitches and added a small button with twine to each flag.
At the end of the banner I added a small diecut from Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" ephemera.
My quote is from an older German entry to Eurovision Song Contest . It is not really a favourite song of mine but one of my girls came up with it when I asked them for some lines about friends. It is quite sweet.
That's all for today friends.
Today on the "Les Papiers de Pandore" blog Julie posted one of my layouts.
I will get back to that one when I can.
We are celebrating my husbands birthday (50) on Saturday and we have a lot of preparations to do!
Thanks for dropping by!
