Case File 210 - Nanna Visits are the Best

Hi There Lovelies,

It's time for another CSI: Color Stories Inspiration Case File.

Here is my layout for Case File 210.

For this layout I used a pic from when my mum came to visit.

My Evidence is:  Vertical Stripes, Circles and Rub-Ons.

My Testimony is:  Journaling Strips.  
I journaled on the strips of paper used as vertical stripes.

Here are some close-ups:

I hand drew the circles and then added a pop of color.

I loved using the rub-ons, I sometimes forget I have them.

Here is the Case File:

Case File 207 - Brothers at the Beach

Hi There,

Even though it is Winter here in Far North Queensland,
the weather is amazing!!
So why not share a layout I created for 
that shows my two boys at the beach.

This is for Case File 207 and I think it has been my favourite.

Here are some close-ups:

I made this banner from a triangle punch and scrap bits of 
paper, teamed with some wood anchors and muslin.

I used the Kaisercraft - Sandy Toes Collection.

Here is my journaling:

This journaling is on the back of my layout.

Here is what the Case File looks like:

The case file is due on the 12/08/16.
Why not head on over and give it a go?

Case File 206 - Thanks for Being You, Mum

Hi There Friends.

Another day, another Case File

Here is my take on Case File 206.

I have used all the colors in the palette.

My Testimony is:
Something Woven (I used hessian and I wove the 
paper in the background)

Puffy Stickers (in the title FOR BEING is all puffy stickers)
and Wood (the title is wood).

My Evidence is:  Write Your Journaling as a Thank You Note
"Thank you for being the best mum a girl could have.  
You are the glue that keeps this family together.......
I hope I am half the mum you are to my boys.  
Even though we live two states away I know I can call."

Here are some close-ups:

 Here is what the Case File looks like!

Why not head on over to CSI: Color Stories Inspiration
and give it a go.

Case File 203 - Go! Go! Go!

Hey There Friends,

Today I would like to share with you my layout
Case File 203.

Here is what the case file looks like:

And here are some close-ups:

Lots of layers behind my photo.

I used a scallop punch to create the patterned background.

All the color of the case file have been used.

My evidence is: Scallops, Wood, String and hearts.

My testimony is: Journal about a childhood memory.

My journaling is on a tag behind the photo and says "This photo is me when I was 2. The photo was taken in 1977. My mum worked at a factory and they used to have the Best Christmas parties each year. As a kid I loved them. They would have races and Santa and we would line up for pressies. So much fun."

Thanks so much for stopping by! xx
