CSI #32 'Wonderful You'

Time for another fabulous challenge at CSI.....if you are feeling hot, this is the one for you! A beautifully cool and tranquil palette :0)

It was the absolutely perfect challenge to do a page about my gorgeous graduate, her robe was the right colour and the evidence was so fitting.

BP is an old DCWV that I have squidged embossing paste onto and sprinkled with glitter. Stamped with bubble wrap, spritzed with white paint and randomly stamped using sand coloured chalk ink and an Anna Griffin sentiment stamp.

Evidence: wet medium, glitter and stars. Brad is MME and ticket is TH

These are the stars that were punched out of the bit above :0) The white stars I originally bought to put on a Christmas Cake one year but then thought better of it!

Evidence: dots, textured paper, gauze The journal card is MME, the gauze came from the bouquet of flowers she received after graduating. The square 'tumbled glass' is American Crafts (I's soooo old!)

Title cut on my Silhouette

Evidence: A translucent pocket for journaling. I embossed a glassine envelope using a Sizzix folder. My journaling is about DD#1 transforming from Teacher's Assistant to Newly Qualified Teacher and her journey to get there :0)

Another smashing Case, I think you will agree. As always, Debbi pushes you to be creative and to tell your story, she is one clever lady :0)

Thanks so much for popping in,
