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.

Here is what the challenge looks like:

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Case File 181 - My Boys

Hi There,

So excited to show you my first layout as a 
CSI Detective.

I just love the colors in this Case File.
I had to create a layout with my little men.

Here are some close ups:

I have used the Light Craft color with the Cogs.
Black in the background, title and cogs.
Brick Red in the background, cogs, paper and string.
Turquoise on the frame, title, background and cogs.
Ivory has been used around the title and in the paper rulers.

My Evidence is:  Kraft Background, Frames, Stamps, Gears/Cogs
and string.

My Testimony is in the Presentation:  I have handwritten the journaling directly onto the background.

With this case file I got to use the amazing sketch created by 
The Nifty Pixel.

I flipped the sketch and used the photos to the left.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Smile Little Me - Clique Kits - Funfetti

Hey There,

I have a new guilty pleasure!!

It rocks up once a month.
Has sooooo many funky elements.
In a pizza box.
Colors galore!!!

And this month's kit is called Funfetti!!
And fun does not begin to explain the contents.

Today I am a part of the blog share with the 
rest of the Clique Kits crew.
So make sure you check out the list below to join in on the fun.

I was super inspired by the 
Pinkfresh Studio - Happy Things Collection - 
Dream Big/Geo Stripes sheet of paper from the kit.

I cut a little rectangle from behind where the photo is, too cut out 
some extra circles to give some dimension.

And I punched out some triangles to add dimension also.

How cute are these wood veneer embellishments?
Love love love.

Now here is the list of participants in the blog share:

Clique Kits

This is what the entire kit looks like:

Case File No 177 - A Boy and His Cow

Hey There,

Today I would like to share with you a layout 
that I created inspired by this week's CSI: Color Stories Inspiration
Case File No. 177.

I love this pic of my little boy Lucas and Sookie the Cow.

Here are some close-ups:

I used watercolor pencils in the squares in the color of the palette.

This chipboard is from Miss Wally when she had her shop open.
It is absolutely perfect for this layout.

My journaling is in the form of a Recipe.
It's a Recipe for Mates.

My little man put a hat on Sookie the Cow.
And a stuffed teddy from school for Show and Tell.

Here is what the Case File looks like:

These case files always get my creative juices flowing.
