Love You {CSI Case File No. 230}

We've got a beautiful new challenge at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

I made another page to give to one of my students. Clues I used: Evidence - watercolor, flowers, wood, metal, butterflies, houses, flair badge, rhinestones, phrase stickers; Testimony: Inspiration Word love.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take closeups. That paper behind the white cardstock is a very thin paper that I've had in my stash forever--over ten years. The colors were just perfect for the palette, and I was so happy to finally use it.

I used the packaging technique to add watercolors to the background. I cut the little houses out of a Crate Paper paper from the Cute Girl collection, and the purple flowers were cut out of a Pink Paislee paper from the Oh My Heart collection (paper 13). I think the butterflies are by K&Co. They're pretty old too, as are the paper layers under my photos. That wooden Love was broken, and when I glued it, you couldn't see the break, but it must've shifted somehow as the glue dried. Grrr....

I hope you'll come play with us. We've got a ten awesome sponsors donating prizes:

You Make Me Smile {Stuck?! Sketches May 15 Reveal}

We've got a new challenge live at Stuck?! Sketches. Check out this fantastic sketch Laura made:

I made another page to give to one of my students:

Here are some details. I used the Felicity Jane Caroline kit, plus a few odds and ends from my stash.

How sweet is that little cut-apart girl? I added a flower, cut out from a patterned paper, to her hair and a rhinestone. The blue flowers were cut out of one of the patterned papers in the kits. I just love the silicone charms that come in many of the Felicity Jane kits. The rhinestones, twine, and doily were from my stash. 

The sweet flair badge is also in the kit, as well as these darling puffy stickers. I love puffy stickers! I added some some words using Headline rub-on letters to make part of the title on the die-cut label.

The cursive "Smile" die cut is from the kit. The phrase stamps are from other Felicity Jane kits. The tiny dots are a Kaisercraft stamp. I added them after the fact and then wish I hadn't added them. Sigh.

I hope you'll come play with us. Prizes are being donated from some awesome companies:
