Kathleen here hoping everyone is having is enjoying the beautiful spring weather!  This will be my last layout with Creative Embellishments.    I have thoroughly enjoyed working with such wonderful and creative ladies.

  Today I have a layout I created for C.S.I.’s new challenge #162.  Creative Embellishments is a major sponsor for C.S.I. this month,  so all of our design team gals from Creative Embellishments have been guest designing for them.

I actually created this layout several years ago thinking I would go through my pictures and find one to match. But, I got side tracked and the layout eventually landed in a pile of papers and filed away. So, when this challenge came up I went through my papers and found this layout amongst them.  Perfect!! and score!!  My daughter and I had been to a Chinese cultural fair and they had a photo booth.  Now I have the perfect pictures.


The film strip was spray with Art Anthology black paint.  For the words and flourish I used black embossing powder.  The out of this world frame was painted white then stamped with Distressed Crackle Stamp.

The background received a light coat of gesso then random areas of polka dot masking finished by splatterings of white paint.  Then I came back with the Distressed Checkers and Distressed Script Stamp.

I hope this has inspired you to give our challenge here at Creative Embellishments a go as well as the CSI challenges!
