Better Late Than Never!

I am all over the place this week..not up to anything very special...I have a L.O. that I made last week-end to share.
I was inspired by CSI:Color,Stories,Inspiration Case file NO 26 and the L.O.was put on the Watch List! I am so happy.
Well it started like this.....MY Favourite photo from last year...and things that I pulled from my stash that I could potentially use.
I used blue cardstock as my base and a sheet of the free downloadables that Michele Singh designs for CSI.
I knew I wanted clouds, they were part of the evidence so I randomly added some with some white 3D paste and a spatula...what gave me the biggest headache was the photo of the statue of Robert the Bruce...I wanted to use it, believe me I had it placed all over the place!! At the end I fussy cut it  and placed it in the Garden...even though at Sterling it stands outside the castle gates!
I did not have a leaf die so I stamped the leaves using the Dylusions "Doodle Parts"stamp and fussy cut the leaves....on Sunday at the crop I die cut 4 more can see they are different...
I used my Martha Steward punch for the little gold railing that is heat embossed gold. I used the brick paper and embossed it with an Alterations embossing folder and then I inked the bricks a little too.
The "washi"tape at the bottom of the page is made by me.. I liked the design it added and architectual feel to the L.O. as did the lace under the leaves.

Here are a few photo of the crop at Perahora, near Corinth...thank-you Amalia and Co. for an amazing day!
I had to go and rescue my L.O out of Amalia's craft room...she wanted to keep it...Amalia your project from me is coming( had to promise her one in order to take back my L.O!!)
Stella taking amazing photos of the day....we each made a page for Joanna that is leaving for Chicago.(lady looking at me) I will show you the album we compiled for her in my next post.
Eleni our Guru -or Guru Gonzales fromSpeedy Gonzales...taking a break after finishing her 4th or maybe even 5th L.O.of the day! I lost have just seen that Eleni has posted pics of the album oon her blog.But First I...
