Since I am retired, I have found that I have more time to do the things that I enjoy most. One of them is scrapping. I can't believe how much I have enjoyed scrapping again!
I came across an amazing challenge blog entitled CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration!
Each monthly challenge is set up just like a CSI investigation. So cool! I was totally drawn in.
As I read the "law and order" section, I found that you choose 3 (or more) items from the evidence clues, 1 item from the testimony clues, and create a layout based on the sketch and color scheme.
This month's first "Case File" is as follows:
I truly loved using these colors!
Here is my take on this month's investigation:
My evidence: I used plain white cardstock as my background.
I also used an xoxo banner, clouds, flowers, an arrow, puffy stickers, and word/phrase stickers, too.
My testimony: I used "repetition" as follows:
Time is flying by so quickly.
We just celebrated Easter with our daughters, my sister, brother-in-law, and my mom.
It was wonderful, but I felt a little sad after everyone left.
I think this holiday showed me just how much time has passed and everyone is getting older.
I remember holidays in the past when we celebrated with both entire families.
My mom and grandmother would cry when it was time to leave.
I never really understood how they felt until now.
Time flies . . .
Here is a close up:
And a different view:
I made this page reflecting how our family celebrates the holidays and how our family gatherings have changed and evolved as time goes by. I sometimes feel a little sad when I think about how things have changed over the years. But at the end of the day, I know that we will still get together and celebrate, no matter now small. And I am very happy about that!
Thank you so much, CSI for the inspiration! I am so glad that I found your creative blog. It was fun!!!
