Case No. 185 - Dreaming of Paris

Hi There Friends,

Seriously, who doesn't dream of Paris?
Well I do.
I love the history, the architecture, the art and the food.

I had the opportunity to scrapbook this love
Case File 185.

My favourite colors are featured in this case file.

Here are some close-ups:

This photo of the Eiffel Tower was a wallpaper, screen saver.
I thought it was perfect for the Case File.

I used a funky Artistcellar Stencil - 
by Tamara Laporte (Willowing).

Here is the Case File:

How amazing is that sketch from Page Drafts!!

My Evidence is:

* Architectural Accents - Eiffel Tower Wood Veneers 
& Stencil Background.
*Pom-Pom Trim - Black Pom-Pom Ribbon under photo.
*Sprinkle Something - I sprinkled glitter at the top of the layout.
*Asterisk/Starburst Shape - Asterisk in my journaling as dot points.

My Testimony is:

I wrote my story in the form of a wish list.

Case File 182 - I Can't Hear You!

Hi There Lovelies,

Today I will be sharing with you this layout I made
using the Case File 182 from

This is my niece Madelyn.  She is gorgeous.
I asked if I could take a photo of her and she put her hands over
her ears and said "I Can't Hear You!!"

I loved this challenge and these are colors that I would
not usually use on a layout.
That is the best thing about the CSI color palettes.
It really has you thinking outside the box.

Here are some close-ups:

I used a stencil and texture paste to make a large polka dot pattern.

My Evidence is:
Large Polka Dots
Book Pages
Scallop Border
Wet Medium
White Background

My Testimony is:
using the word sweet as inspiration for my journaling.

And fun does not begin to explain the contents.

some extra circles to give some dimension.

And I punched out some triangles to add dimension also.
