My layout "Beauté" and a sketch from the webzine.

I made this layout a little while back and it was in the latest webzine from Les Papiers de Pandore.
I used the new collection called "Perfum de Camélias", and I think I used a bit of almost every piece of the collection.

 I may have gone a bit overboard here with my flowers and my fanfolds,...LOL!

I cut the frame from one pattered paper and placed it over the green paper.
I used a heart punch from Martha Stewart for the border on the pink paper.
I wanted the hearts to stand out more so I backed them with a darker colour.
After layering the pink paper on top and glueing it only down the middle so the sides would be loose, I added my doilies down each sideunderneath the heart border edges.

I love doing fanfolded rosettes with a striped paper because hey all turn out so different. 
If you have not tried it I think you should, because it is great fun!

Of course I ad to add some pretty flowers to my page. These are a mixture of Prima and others from my stash.

I love this photo of Beatrice with her long braids. It was one of the last ones we took before she cut off most of her long lovely hair. (Although some would maybe say it is quite long still...)

Finally I will share the sketch that Julie made for this page, The picture is a page from the webzine:
