Case File 39 - Enjoy the Moments That Make You Smile

Hey Everyone,
I have another Case File ready.  I have so enjoyed all these challenges over at
CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.  Just from doing 3 weeks worth of challenges,
I feel my work has been getting better and I am challenged weekly by the color palette and the journalling aspect, as I don't always include alot of journalling.
Here is this weeks Case File:

Here is my interpretation of the Case and the Sketch.

I loved this color palette.  I had loads of fun using gesso and my favourite Unity Stamps.

I have flipped the sketch.

Part of the Evidence was to use a bird.  He is so cute!

I used a craft knife to half cut the butterfly to make it pop up.  I sprayed some white flowers also to get the perfect colors for this challenge.

In the background you can see the Book Page, out of one of my mums favourite Jackie Collins books and it was perfect as you can see the word Mama.

Some more Unity Stamp and some muslin.

I am just so in love with the Giant Butterfly stamp from Unity.  It is behind the title.  And another butterfly charm dangling from the word "Smile"

My Evidence (Journalling) was:
All I need to know I learned from my Mum.
She is the most compassionate, selfless and giving person I know.
Her smile lights up a room.
My only hope is that I can teach my children to be that same kind of person.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

I am having a child free weekend in Canberra,
for my sister-in-laws hens party and I can't wait!!!


  1. You are definitely growing through these challenges, and I feel I am doing the same! I just love what you have done with this one and can't wait to see more!!!

  2. So lovely to see all the close ups of the stamping, stitching, bird and charm. Beautiful tribute to your Mother too :)

  3. LOVE this. I am going to start doing these challenges. A friend of mine introduced me to this challenge site and you have inspired me to start doing them. I was intimidated by everyone's amazing work, but since you feel that it helps you improve, I think I'm going to give it a shot. Your page is amazing and I hope I can do as well.
