I did this layout for the design team at CSI Color Stories Inspiration.  I used the colors and the picture as my guide which led me to this sweet photo of my grandson Colby who just lost his very first tooth.  He was so excited and he wondered what the tooth fairy was bringing!

Here is the challenge:

I really felt the colors was so perfect with my photo for it looks so whimsical!!

Please see the close-ups!

I used a leaf die-cut and added beads!

I added a stencil, watercolor, sequins, and two stamps.

I thought he looked so handsome with his missing tooth!

Here is a list of products that I used:

Prima Stencil
Tim Holtz - Leaaf die-cut
Sequins - TCS
From my stash - Bronze mini beads, large gold bead, watercolors

Thank you for looking and please have a great day!!

Hello my friends!  I did this layout for CSI Design Team.  We were to document a summer memory.  I found this photo of me (a very long time ago) and decided it would be perfect for this layout.  

We lived in a very small town and if you could see in the background my dad has planted a garden which he did every year.  Also look very closely and you can see oil derricks in the background.  

Here is the challenge:


I solved this case by:

The Scene:  Used all 5 colors
The Evidence:  Solid white background, Floral pattern, Mixed media, Flowers, Leaves, Beads
The Testimony:  Happy 

Please see my close-ups:

I used a die-cut for the leaves, added sequins, and beads.

I used a white background and cut out the floral paper into a frame and attached it with pop-ups.  I also used a stencil and ink spray.

Here is the list of items that I used:

White cardstock, Floral paper, Black corrugated paper, Pink & Green Sequins - My stash
Orange Ink - Tim Holtz
Flowers - Prima & Petaloo

Thank you for looking and have a great day!
