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 sun...lol..?)
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,...lol. 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.
