Sweet Shop! I want to go there ;-)

Here's CSI case file number 29, and it's delightful! This is such a fun case file, and I wanted to capture that in my layout.

Here's my layout: "Sweets" 

Journaling says:
follow the trail
of treats and toys
and there you will find
one happy kid
we call Charlie.
(there is also a stamp that says "fabulous day")

stripes, labels, wood, something transparent, sanded paint, angles, weathered look.
Testimony: long thin strips, write about labels

Sweet shop constructed from several elements from various kits and stock images:
Holliewood studios, sweet shop
Marta vanEck: desperate green kit
Lorie Davison: Love Stories From The Red Flower Shop
Rhonna Farrer: Lace it up kit, Roughed Up 2 Tool Kit, honeycomb pieces, Punk Junque
and one cute, happy kid in silly socks.

If you like this case file, be sure to download the printables I created for this CSI case file, here's the link, and here's the preview of what's inside:

thanks for looking!

Poor, neglected blog

It's hard to believe that it's been since the end of April that I have posted to this blog, but let's face the truth. Time to catch up!  This week I have two layouts to share so far; one for each of my favorite challenge sites.

Here's case file number 28:

Here's my layout: Get Silly

This was such a fun case file, and I was lucky enough to dig up a funny photo for it…

Journaling says:
• Get Silly
• squawk, squeak, jump, juggle, rattle, shake, flip, flop, burp. Oh the funny things you do, my sweet, silly girl!
• "Hey, there is no 'off' button on this model"
• Quote from Dr. Seuss: From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.

Evidence: robots, circles, metal, create shadows, tone-on-tone pattern.
Testimony: Document something silly, something related to technology
Stuff:  CSI coordinates, some CU items, plus one stock image.

If you like these images, you can download the printable coordinates I created by following this link: (coordinates are at the end of the post). Here's a preview of what's included:


The Color Room (
Palette number #119

Here's my layout: First Day

My kiddo on the day she was born. I've been waiting to scrap this for a long time, finally found the perfect palette!

Journaling: Sweet Charlotte
Charlotte on her first day, perfect in every way.
