In 2012 I stumbled across a scrapbook site called CSI. My first case was #42 and I was instantly hooked and I played along and then was privileged to joined the design team and I retired last year.
This year they turned 5. Happy birthday CSI! Debbi Tehrani has done an amazing job with this site and it is one that definitely challenges you. Anyway, she asked the retired detectives to come out of hiding and play along for birthday issue. So here I am - playing!
If you have never been and checked this challenge out I highly recommend that you do. You can find all the details HERE.
Here is the case file.
Here is how I solved the case.
I used the sketch and then rotated it and then I needed to change the dimensions to suite my photo and I am pretty sure that if you look really, really hard you will see it in there :D
Scheme - I have used all of the colours.
Evidence - Tiny dots, circles, banners, different colour letters for title, stamp phrases,enamel dots,
Testimony - I used the inspiration words, delicious, sweet, life.
I have some journalling on the front which says...
Paige you are such a happy, loving child. I hope that you never lose that. You have a ready smile and a twinkle in your eye. Arms that are always ready for a hug and I love you.
On the back my journalling says...
You really are Glannies Girl, and you have reminded me what unconditional love is. I hope you never lose your zest for life. You are such fun to be around, you are bright as a button and so inquisitive, you have your own opinions and you wont be swayed by what anyone else says or does. You have changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined and I love how you see the world. You really are the sweetest little thing and I love you so much.
Here are some close ups of my layout.
I am happy to say that I bashed my stash for this layout and the colours were perfect.
Here you can see some of the mixed alphas for the titles and also some stamping. I used some Heidi Swapp colour shine in Gold for the splashes.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look and for taking the time to leave me a comment.
I really appreciate it.
Till next time - Happy Scrapping!
