What a lovely fun summery case to solve.

to the moon and back


Here is how I solved the case:

Colour palate: I have used sky blue, white, bubblegum pink and butter yellow

Evidence: anchor, travel themed element (bike), flowers, leaves, watercolour paint, brush lettering (stamp and stencil)

Testimony: the layout is about a day trip out to celebrate Kenzie's birthday

A few close ups-









Once again, a huge thank you to Debbi and her team of Detectives.

Kraft Plus March Challenge

Kraft Plus - Sketch and Fussy Cutting


Life is Good
 Another photo of Smudge, this time resting in my craft space.


I liked the layout of the sketch and have used a lot of elements from it, but as always some things were tweaked. I liked the circles and tried to incorporate them....but in the end, they had to go. 
My fussy cut items are the butterflies and the feathers.

Thank you to Sandra for creating another fantastic challenge and three cheers for the awesome sponsors.

Colour Stories Inspiration: Case #247



Magical  Moment


How I solved the case:
The scene: all five colours used - but I did tone down the colours a little.
The evidence: floral patterns (stamping in hot pink), mixed media background, flowers, animals.
The testimony: document - a summer memory, presentation - add some flowers to my journaling strips.

A fun summery investigation. Thanks Debbi and the team at CSI.

Kraft Plus February Challenge.


I am very excited to be representing A2Z Scraplets for this months Kraft Plus challenge - ABBA thank you for the music - mamma mia. Pop over to the Kraft Plus blog and check out all the inspirational pages - then create a project and play along.


I was inspired by the ABBA song I do, I do, I do, I do, I do.
Perfect to finally scrap some photos from my wedding...we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year so about time!


A2Z Scraplets had the perfect chipboard piece (times 2). I have kept the chipboard raw to match with the earthy tones on the page.


To create the background I used crackle texture paste (gold) with a cobblestone stencil, spraying dark brown mist around the edges. I coloured some muslin with a gold mist and used this under the photo with some micro beads. I added some touches of red to accentuate the red lining of my dress. The red mesh heart was a 'Christmas gift tag'.
