The Many Beautiful Faces of Kiara..

I'm back over playing at CSI... on their last case #155..they even had a wonderful sketch to work with... how great is that..?? hee hee

The Title work was all done with some random stamps I have collected in my stash..many from the dollar store!!

The journaling states:
"I so dearly love this face - but I have few recent pics..she is at that age - She hates having her photo taken... "

That's My Boy...

I laughed so hard when I received this recent photo from the guys on their way to lunch with Phil's sister and her partner... (as the journaling states) Leave it to Jaden to use this opportunity to let them know  that he probably would have been happier back at home playing on his Xbox with his brother Jared!! hee hee

Many of the papers and sentiments are from October Afternoon's Daily Flash Collection..

I hand cut a rectangle, rounded the bottom corners...pulled out a Tim Holtz die, some punches and an embossing folder for this one...I can see this being more masculine by just using different design papers....

This Old House...

It's really good and challenging, too, to be back's such a different craft format than cardmaking!!

Of course this is all made easier by following along the weekly challenges over at CSI
( )
This Layout is based on Case #154...

The Journaling shares the story of the two photos... one in 1956 ( with my best friend in front of her home) the other in 2004.. when I moved back to PEI and was in a position to buy this special house ...
