I’m so inspired by the cases available each month on the CSI Color Stories Inspiration ning so I was very excited to hear that we were not only one of their sponsors this month, but also guest designing for them as well. The palette for case 160 reminded me of the beach, so went that direction. It worked out great since I then used the first option for “testimony” and journaled about our first family vacation where we had taken a trip to the beach. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:



From the evidence column of the challenge, I included a globe, textured paper, frames, metal, chevons and stamping.

I cut apart the leafy vine frame and used it in pieces around my photo in order to enlarge the circumference:




Layered CE chippies, wood veneer and bg stamping:

I had a lot of fun creating this page and look forward to playing along with 2 more of the case files over at CSI. 😀 Hope you play along with us!
