CSI Case File 166

Another cool case from CSI!

here is the case link, click to follow.
And here is my page..

You Are My Sunshine

I really had my heart set on using this photo, it was taken at the same time as the one I used for a case last month.... I tried to make it more similar than this (so it would 'look nice') as a spread in my album... yeah, that is the trouble with being a 'double page scrapper'... we are funny like that!
Scheme:  All colours accounted for.
Evidence:  Stripes, numbers, cloud, paint, and a pocket for  the journaling.
Testimony:  I have journaled on a tag in the pocket, and it is all about using your imagination while playing and especially painting.... and about how Zac always managed to get more paint on himself!
Just one close up... it is a pretty simple layout!
I love how the sun has created a halo around Zac's head, with his 'fly away' hair looking so cute!
This is just a quick post, I am getting this in by the skin of my teeth!
Cheers, Vicki

CSI Case File 167

How pretty is this case file???
Straight away I thought... light, airy... fairy... (I am glad the girls' dresses coordinated! lol)

Here is the file...


And here is my take...


Scheme: All colours accounted for

And a few close ups...

I stamped the Imagine, cut out the letters and coloured them in with H20s - so pretty.
I love the little bit of bling on the Petaloo florals, and the German Scrap 'castle' (think it is actually a church...) just fitted beautifully - coloured again with H20s.
I cut the Blue Fern Splattered Circle, because I didn't want them confined to the frame....  I added some Prima Art Sugar after I coloured the chipboard and the castle. Fairy dust!
My journaling is under the photo, you just lift the flap.... it talks about the special friendship between Bree and Eliza.... and Ange and I. Perfect for the mothers and the girls!
 I got to use two of the new trinkets from Scrap Matrix... the fairy (of course!) and the little heart.
This was such a magical time in their lives - so many beautiful memories. And... many of them seemed to involve dressing up! Such cute little fairies, and they had the fairy castles to imagine living in!
Beautiful case - solved.

6th June 

Kraft + - June Challenge

Animal Print & Circles
Here is the link:
For someone who is not such a huge fan of animal print, and had second thoughts about even doing this - I actually really enjoyed it... once I remembered an old Prima paper I had in my stash! 
Not so scary after all!
To be honest, I even did 2!!!
Sandra Wallace's photo.

Here is my layout

Apprentice Wild Thing


When I first got Cleo, it didn't take her long to figure out a nice warm spot in the afternoon sun. The window ledge became her  favourite spot in the old house in Burra.

I used to wonder what she would be thinking... gazing out into the great blue - or green - yonder...
When she got bigger and I let her venture outside, she still didn't really become too adventurous, preferring to stay close to home.  The photos I took of her first step into 'outside' are so cute and show how tentative and curious she was.

And a close up...

I did a bit of stenciling with distress sink, added some texture paste with some random circles from various stencils, then started layering my papers. I used an old IOD range from Prima, 7 Dots Thoughts Keeper and of course Kraft as my base!  The title is made up of Thoughts Keeper letters, (cut into circles) and some Kraft coloured Thickers.
Embellishments were mainly Prima flowers, Scrap Matrix lace, bling and some wide jute ribbon.
I am really happy with how this sweet little layout turned out!
Cheers, Vicki
