Hope for the Future Layout {Creative Scrappers Sketch 224} Les Papiers de Pandore

Hello Everyone!  Hope you have had a great weekend so far!
I like the one after month end!!  Things slow down just a tad :)
But things keep rolling on at Creative Scrappers with a new
sketch every Sunday & it was my reveal week there this week!

I turned the sketch on it's side & inverted it to suit the
photo I wanted to use.  My house helper is on leave
right now & I made a layout for her to take her 
daughter who is recently married.  

I used the beautiful new 'Invitation' papers from 
Les Papiers de Pandore for these.  You can buy them 
any time for yourself through the store which you 
can see the link to at the top of the Pandore blog.

The butterfly badge is also part of the collection.  Lots of
 fussy-cutting opportunities with these beautiful papers & I
 love the subtle Chevrons on the background paper.

Typed journaling in my new favourite font, Pacifico.

Got to use up some of my 'classic' {read 'old'!}
 Making Memories metals on this layout - as well as the
 blingy frame - but they're timeless embellishments.

I inked, punched and layered up the papers, together with some
Cheery Lynn Doily die-cuts & Jolee flower embellishments.

You have until the end of  September to play along with
the sketch & be entered into the random draw for this
month's prize!
