Lovely feminine combo for you at Les Papiers de Pandore.

Just got back from my hols a day ago and am loving the chance to get back to my blogging 
and visiting all your blogs again. I had a wonderful time on vacations 
(who can fault three weeks in the Provencal 
but it is also nice to be back to 'normal' again.

While in France I scrapped some more pages with the beautiful new collections from 
"Les Papiers de Pandore" called "Invitation" and "UrbanEssence". 
I really hope some of your stores abroad will be carrying them because they are really beautiful.

This is one of my "French" pages. It does not have a lot of bought embellishments as I only brought a small kit with me on holiday. I made it for the July combo.

And here is the lovely colour combo for those who like to take part. If you post your pages on the Pandore  Facebook page, you have a chance to be the winner of some Pandore stamps.

I am very much into using strips of patterned paper on my layouts at the moment.
You will notice that on some of the layouts that I made while on holiday.
-Maybe because I was working out of a small kit... I now need to add some titles and other details to finish off the pages and in a day or two I will have more to share.

The photo is one of Beatrice from the Spring when she still had her long braids.

 A close up of my very simple but to me very decorative lollipop flowers. 
-As I said I was low on supplies while away, I can truly say that almost everything here is made with the "Invitation" collection!

When I first showed my page to Julie she almost fainted that I could wrinkle her beautiful papers up like that. With a big smile on her face she told me that she always did her utmost for the paper to reach me in pristine condition. I am now afraid that after seeing IRL how I treat her papers maybe next time she will not be so careful....LOL. I am sure she will though, just kidding. And I promise you my next pages will be less wrinkled :-)
It is absolutely right though that I often completely roll the papers up into a ball and pull them in all directions to make them more pliable, if that's the right word.
And sometimes I prefere the nice and flat ones.

I leave you with a close up of my layers and I hope you will check out the combo HERE  and see the other DT projects for it.There is a fabulously detailed card with Parvatis famous 3D flowers and an adorable page by Jennifer.

  3. Bente what a gorgeous layout such beautiful colours and I adore what you have done with the papers! LOL

  4. LOL ! I have seen this this page and Julie almost fainting IRL, but she can't be anything else than glad that you're doing this to your (hey they're not hers after you get them !) papers, it's worth the result ! The title that I had not seen for real is perfect too, fantastic work !

  5. You have packed in quite a punch even with your limited supplies, Bente! Haha...Julie's reaction to your paper distressing is truly funny. And I love Beatrice's pigtails :)

  6. love her fabulous photo Bente - love your page too - perfect lollipop flowers

  7. Love your page, gorgeous colors and the flower are so cute :)

  8. Gorgeous page and picture Bente!! I love her braids! I adore the scalloped strips too!

  9. wow!! sooo beautiful page!

  10. Stop the "low on supplies" nonsense ;) You were very resourceful with the lollipop flowers - they are better than store-bought!
    Welcome back,

  11. Amazing. Love the color combination.

  12. Wow, this is so eye catching, Bente! Gorgeous colours, FABULOUS design with the strips of punched paper...and I LOVE your gorgeous lollipops! Fantastic picture too...omg look how long her hair is & I love how you've captured the braids swinging through the air like that. Gorgeous, Gorgeous layout! <3

  13. Love the lollipop flowers. The paper strips in the background are very effective too.

  14. So glad you had a lovely holiday...and still managed some scrapping time :) This is gorgeous! I love the wrinkles and that pic is stunning! Have a great week xoxo

  15. Very creative and happy design my friend!!! Love it!!

  16. Fab design and love all the layers and details! I laughed about the crinkle papers bit. I at times even wet them before crinkling them up into a ball several times and then even sanding them afterwards. It is all art and they add to the end feel and still show the beauty of the papers.LOL!

  17. Was just thinking when you might be heading back home again, SO wonderful to have you home again!! LOVE this page Bente, the melon/strawberry against the green is totally delish! and your lollipops are just the best! the foam alphas are the cherries on the icing, perfect! Härligt att ha dig tillbaka vännen, ser fram emot litet skvaller någon gång framöver. Puss puss å hälsa familjen

  18. This layout is awesome! Love the picture with her long long braids!!
    I saw in your last post that you went in southern France, Salernes did you? It is so close to my home! I'm about an hour by car from this city^^

    1. Hi,and thank you so much for the kind words.
      Yes I spent three lovely weeks in the Var region. In a small village called Cabasse near Brignoles.You live in a lovely area!!

  19. underbar - älskar bilden man ser riktigt hur hon snurrar med de långa svepande flätorna, grym färgkombo ♥♥♥

  20. Such a gorgeous page, Bente!! Love the lolipop flowers and your punch work!! I don't worry about my papers getting a bit bent now either. I used to be oh so careful with them, and I still try to keep them nice, but most of my pages are distressed these days, too. :-)~ Blessings, Tracey

  21. What a delightful photo. Love Miss B's braids! And what a delightful and gorgeous page. Those colors are lovely. Love the layered flowers you made and those strips of border-punched papers. Beautiful, Bente!

  22. Ljuvlig. Gillar färgerna och alla små runda blommor. Fantastiskt photo!!! Å vilka flätor *imponerad*

  23. I love it that you could create such a stunning layout with only a small kit. Your lollipop flowers are awesome.

  24. Good for you in scrapping on your trip! This is gorgeous! I love the colors, attention to detail, and those long braids! I loved the story too about the paper ;)

  25. Åhhhh, så flott! jeg bare digger fargene og alle detaljene - det er herlig å se at noen fortsatt kan scrappe uten å ha masse kjøpe-pynt.
