It is a cool wet Saturday here, I have a lamb roast in the oven and I thought I had better put up some design team layouts I have created for this month..
The challenge for the 123 CHALLENGE BLOG is a fabulous one.. I really had fun with this one.. and it is..
To use the color Lilac, the word DRAMA and have some doodling on your layout..
After wondering what photo to use, I decided to see if I could find a quote first, and I found a fantastic quote and then I just knew what photo I was going to use!!
Some closer views.
I have used a stamp for my doodling..The black flourishes are gorgeous Scrapmatts chipboards.
The only drama that I enjoy is in my lashes!!
And the SCRAPMATTS DESIGN TEAM are Guest Designers this month for CSI Case Files and so the first one for the month has gone up.
If you have never played along before it really is quite easy to follow. You need to use the colors, at least 3 clues/evidence, and at least one testimony. And this week there is a sketch for your inspiration too.. You can check out the many wonderful design team inspiration over at the CSI SITE HERE!!! Debbi puts so much work into each case file it really is worth a look to check it out!!
So for my layout I have followed the sketch, and used all the colors.
For the evidence I have used a white back ground, grid pattern (stamp), diamonds (stamp Chipboard), hearts, stamps, border punch and enamel dots.
For the testimony I have used the New York Times article prompt 47 - what role do pets play in your family?
And my layout..
Some closer views..
All the chipboard pieces and stencils are from SCRAPMATTS!
Our pets are not just animals, they are part of our family. They are part of our daily activities, When we lose a pet, we lose a part of our family. .. ..
I created this layout a few weeks ago, and sadly last monday we had to say good bye to Bess, our horse..We lost Lucy our Fox Terrier in August last year.. So we really do cherish the memories and photos even more now.
So thank you for coming by today and also for checking out my layouts.. I do appreciate each one of you and the lovely comments you leave me too..
I will close this post with a photo of Bess and I that I put on facebook...
