Just Peachy Layout - Special Deputy CSI Color Stories Inspiration

Happy Friday Friends! Today I am sharing a layout I created for CSI (colorstoriesinspiration) case file 127 as a Special Deputy! 
My son Bret passed his road test and got his license on April 11th. I am both proud of him and well always a sort of worry wart, a nervous momma.

Evidence: Camera, wood and transportation pic.

 Hidden Journaling: Peachy - I have mixed feelings about Bret passing his road test. Don't get me wrong. I am happy but also worried. I felt the same about Ryan and Kayla. I am confident Bret will be careful. I am proud of him.

A Fun Day Layout - CSI Special Deputy

Today I am sharing a layout I created for Creative Embellishments inspired by Casefile #126 at CSI colorstoriesinspiration challenge site.
My Aunt took Jolie to Darien Lake on Saturday and Sunday . This girl has been asking us for years to go. We have either been to busy or didn’t have enough cashola to go. Sometimes it stinks being the youngest of 4 children. I am hoping she doesn’t feel resentment when she gets older. The cool thing is that my aunt bought her a season pass which includes free parking. She can go to the park everyday this summer if she wanted and of course with proper supervision. My daughter Kayla and son Bret both got seasons passes as well so I know they won’t mind taking her and it tickles me to see them spend time together. Jolie is 6 years younger then Kay and 8 years younger then Bret.

EVIDENCE:  Chevrons, polka dots, flowers, leaves, hearts, transparent item (over photo), flourish, scalloped border.

Testimony: Invite prompt... Journaling says.. 
Jolie was so excited to be invited to Darien Lake. It's her first time going to the amusement park. She had an amazing time.

Thanks for stopping by the blog. Have a creative weekend.

Happy Days Layout - June Special Deputy at CSI Color Stories Inspiration

Happy Sunday and June 1st!! I am back again today sharing a layout as a Special Deputy at CSI (colorstoriesinpiration) ning scrappy challenge site.  I created this layout for Case File no. S365-6. 

My goofy daughter Kayla is at one of the tours on a submarine at the Erie Basin Marina. She also visited the 2 war ships they have at the harbor. One is supposedly haunted? She was with her boyfriend their last year and he took the silly pic.

 How I solved the case.

Evidence; Lace, Hemp twine, jewels, flowers, ombre (stamped image),striped, frames, labels, gold (on compass),stamped (grid)and texture paste.

Journal ...I used the initials of Kayla Kramer to describe her on the labels to the right of the photo..Kind, Kooky, kinetic, kissable, kindred. 

I also journaled on a tag behind the photo. Inspired by the word fresh...Kayla and her boyfriend Mike spent the day at the Erie Basin Marina. It's a nice place to go on a hot day to enjoy the fresh air. It's often cooler by the lake. They also enjoyed the sights, food and chillaxin.

#cute Layout - Creative Embellishments June Challenge

Happy 1st of June already!! Today I am sharing a layout I created for the Creative Embellishments June DT challenge reveal. The challenge is to be inspired by an inspiration photo and use something nautical on your project.

My daughter went to the Erin Basin Marina last weekend with her boyfriend and I was so happy to have a new picture to work with for this challenge. It worked out perfectly. The marina is about 10 minutes from us and we go often. It’s a nice place to go on a hot summer day. You can watch the boats, chill on the beach or walk and see the pretty flowers planted. They also have food along the harbor. It’s really a lot of fun. People take their lawn chairs and blankets and just sit and read. Just a nice place to be.

For the challenge I used some nautical wood, chipboard and flair on my layout. I cut apart the wave panel and wave border were  simply altered with gesso and viva inka gold metallic blue rub. I altered  Flourish 1 with two different color greens, one being  tim holtz distress paint and a prima  chalk edger. You can’t tell the variation in color to much though. I altered the rope frame first applying Tim Holtz antique linen distress paint and then swiped with burlap color distress paint. I altered the wood nautical starswith distress stain in faded jeans. The wood compass with distress stain in pewter and I left the sun all natural. The wood anchowas altered with maya gold in grey and I added a piece of jute to it.  The sailboat was altered with gesso, maya gold in grey and blue metallic rub. The chipboard lighthouse was altered with white arylic paint, metallic blue rub and maya gold in grey. The social hash tag was altered with blue metallic rub and black ink pad. Lastly I added a few pieces of flair for an added touch of fun.
