Hello ya'll!  Today I am sharing my layout for CSI Color Stories Inspiration.  This one was easy for me because I live in Texas and there are so many things to see and do.  

Here is my layout:

Here is the challenge:

This is how I solved the case:

The Scheme:  Used all 5 Colors
The Evidence:  Woodgrain, Animals, Stitching
The Testimony:  Texas - The Lone Star State

We took pictures of the longhorn and her baby plus the windmill which is so gorgeous.

Here are the close-ups:

You can see the various papers that I tore.  I used Tim Holtz leaves die-cut.

I used a stencil on the background and added metal gears.


Here you can see the stitching.

Here is a list of products that I used:

Reminisce Paper - Patriot
49 Market Heirloom Botanicals - Conservatory Paper
Texas Lettering - Hobby Lobby
Prima stencil
Tim Holtz - Leaves Die Cut
Metal Gears - Michaels
Cardstock Star - Michals
 Petaloo Flowers

My Heroes

I did this funny and cute layout for the Design Team at CSI Color Stories Inspiration.

These two are my sweet grandchildren Kenzie and Colby.

This is the CSI Color Stories Inspiration challenge:

This is how I solved the case:

The Scheme:  I used all five colors
the Evidence:  String, Bow, Hearts
The Testimony:  My Heroes - together is the best place to be; a dream is a wish your heart makes; those who don't believe in magic will never find it

Please see my close-ups

I used by Tim Holtz leaves die cut.  Since we were asked to use blue, red, and yellow I decided to make the leaves various colors.

I tore the colors so make red, blue and yellow.  I added the star burst with POW! 
I used modeling paste and a stencil for the background accents.  I found the starburst Awesome along with the three sayings.

I loved working on this layout.  It is much simpler that the layouts I normally do but this one ended up quiet sweet and very enjoyable.

Thank you for taking a peek.  Please join us at CSI Color Stories Inspiration.
