CSI Case File #75

Hi there Dear Friends.
I was a busy bee yesterday....
A couple of weeks back I had sorted my L.O.s into albums...a big job as I do not scrap in chronological order! So as a result I had a couple of pages empty.....So I needed to make flat, or should I say flattish (almost an impossibility!)pages...I decided to make 2 seeing that I has co-ordinations stash out...
My thinking process......
 This is the first L.O I made, it is for baby's album...
Evidence includes, chevrons, distressing, hearts, and flowers one being gold glitter .
For the Testimony I used the prompt Pop A Question, in fact I combined 2 questions using the word "today". In fact I started writing under my title and somehow moved upwards with each paragraph.

My second  L.O is made on an existing page in my Daughter wedding was peach, I added Moulding Paste, I masked and misted, and added pink and gold acrylic paint as well as Gesso.....
This L.O. is also going to be submitted into the Scrap Africa challenge that wants you ro use stencils,moulding paste and paint.....I got the lacy effect by using a Glimmer Glam mask.

 Afterwards I stamped using gold paint, then I used the same masks and sprayed with glimmer mist a home-made cocktail!...later I added pink paint, gold paint and gesso.

My Evidence for this page is lace, jewels, flowers, and gold. I struggled to add grey into this l.O. at the end I painted my white gessoed wood veneer birds with Pumice Stone.
My Journaling is not much as this is goiated the dng into an existing wedding album, but I documented the date. And I expanded on the title Follow your Heart.Saying "Faye may you always be happy and radient like today. Alwayss be true to yourself and follow your heart-and in turn everything will be fine. Love yourself and your family and your life will be amazing."
Once again I did not use many dimensional flowers as I wanted this L.O. to be reasonably flat.

Thanks for popping by.



  1. Both of these contain beautiful photos, and each layout is created so wonderfully.. they look great!!

  2. Two beautiful pages! I especially like how you integrated your long journaling on the 1st page. It melts perfectly in the design.
    And the texture on the second one looks fantastic.

  3. love them both! wonderful and most inspiring work, as always, Zeffy!

  4. Lovely pages. I am busy on a re-organize of my room due to the wonderful gift I was given and need to do my albums too as I have all my pages in albums are full and need to be resorted too...another week-ends job...

  5. Wasn't this a great challenge!?! I LOVE your take on it, and am so glad you decided to play along with us gals at SCRAP AFRICA!! Smiles, Rene' :)

  6. These are both beautiful layouts. I don't scrap chronological either, but I do try to keep the layouts in albums as I finish. This makes for some re-shuffling at times. You did a fabulous job with the challenge!
