CSI ..I was fortunate to have these beautiful photos of my grand-niece Kinley..although they have just moved back to Canada, they were fortunate to have lived in Houston, Tx for several years and they pics were taken in a field of the very famous Blue Bonnets of Texas.. a perfect color combo for the color palette this week....
I really enjoy creating my own embellishments and backgrounds and this week was no different... as I used a lot of dies, stamps and water colors.....
Challenges are always a great way to get inspired...and CSI are full of wonderful artists to be inspired by...!!

I made this for my favorite youngest son's Bday.. it's always more challenging to create an interesting Adult Masculine card.
I used a new stamp set from Stampin' Up - Amazing Birthday... I can see how versatile this set is going to be..
This was my first time using their products and I have to say I was very impressed with their quality...
Unfortunately it did not photograph well, due to poor weather and lack of good natural light and I had to get in the mail so it can reach him on time...

Here are three of my favorite guys enjoying a ferry trip from Manhattan... Phillip really loves taking the boys on regular adventures like this and I love seeing the pics of such wonderful moments and creating scrap pages for them to recall such great memories.... Thanks guys!!

The striped and flower clouds were die cut from a Lawn Fawn Cloud Die..
These little birds and clouds were cut on my Cricut from the Create a Critter cartridge..
The fence came from a Martha Stewart Punch...
It was perfect for this week's Case #201 over at CSI .. of course my backdrop may be a wee bit more whimsical than his actual abode, I couldn't help but take some creative liberties!! hee hee
Papers & Stickers are older and all shopped from my stash....

Here's Case 200 over at CSI and the color pallet this week was just perfect for a photo I had been wanting to scrap for a little while.... Jaden is only about 5 in this pic and with the spiked hair, the growly face and the dinosaur in his hand ... I couldn't resist!! hee hee
Lots of stamping with this one and what fun to do a Boy Page....

The Title was cut from several fonts that I "welded" together and my Cricut Expression...
I stamped the music notes on a 3/4" circle, distress inked the edges and added some Glossy Accents..
The Flowers and Leaves were die cut from two Tim Holtz's Decorative Strip Dies. The brads are all from my stash..
All the Clocks were stamped from stamps I have in my stash..
CSI Design Team. How wonderful it is to be a part of such a talented group of people who have inspired me to create meaningful and fun Scrap Pages.... hopefully in some small way I can return the favor.
These vintage photos are of me and my cousin and dear friend Paula. Can you believe they were taken almost 50 years ago?? Well I can't..!! hee hee
It was fun to put this page together and having such a great sketch really helped...
If you're looking for a challenge and some incredibly talented folks to get your Mojo going and maybe win some prizes.. CSI is the place to be!
