CARPE DIEM - Single Page Layout
(CSI DT - Major Case File 239)

CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration detective Nicole was at work
once again, and this is how I solved my newest case file!

For more information on Case File #239 and all the wonderful prizes up for grabs,
click HERE.  You will also see how my fellow DT members solved it,
and let me tell you, they are a bunch of pretty fabulous detectives!

Let me explain how I solved this case!

The Scene in this case celebrates International Music Day!
I was mostly inspired by the Summer-y feel of the image and so 
decided to scrap a photo of a very fun pool party with co-workers,
most of whom who are also, of course, my good friends!

In the Scheme, you find some ballerina pink, minty green, 
pale warm gray/off white, dark navy blue and sky/powder blue.

From the Evidence list, I chose: 
floral print, flowers (of course), flamingo, wood and circles.

For the Testimony, well, I went for the obvious topic of Summer 
and hand-wrote my journaling about a superb Summer evening with friends.

And as always, the Major Case comes with a fabulous sketch!

Now let's take a look at some details:

The papers used are from Simple Stories.  It had most of the colours of the Scheme
and had that darling flamingo piece of evidence!

I'm very self-conscious whenever I hand-write on my pages,
but I have to say that it gives a personal touch that scrapbooking 
is supposed to be all about.

I used a square stencil with blue paint and then a circle stencil with pink paint.
After my layout was all made, I found that it was missing something... so I drew
a swirly design around the photo and embellishments and then stitched it.

And there you go.... the 'good life' with a great people!

  1. Oh, this is wonderful, Nicole! Loving that flamingo and all the pretty flowers and that great big title, and the bubble texture paste in the background is perfect for a weery layout. Everything looks beautiful against that rich blue backround!
