We’re proud sponsors of CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration), which is a great color challenge site.  This month we’re guest detectives and I’ve solved case #170

Here’s how I’ve solved the case.  The elements evidence that I present are metal stars, bows and stripes. My testimony is using the inspriration word summer in my journaling to describe my great niece who is just one of the boys.

I’ve used Creative Embellishments Grass Border underneath the photo.  I painted it first with a Ranger paint dabber in lettuce and then covered it with Glimmer Glam in organic garden.

I also tucked in a few fall leaves from the set of 16 that I also painted with the lettuce paint dabber.

Creative Embellishments also has stamps and they are ultra awesome and cool!  I’ve used Distressed Text stamp on this layout.  This is a really neat stamp that looks like text from an old typewriter.
