Cute - CSI 135

Hi friends.  I missed last week's Case file but I am playing along with Case file 135.  As mentioned in a previous post I am "special deputy" for the month of August over at Color Story Inspiration (CSI). I used photos of Leane and Lukas that was taken way back in December 2010.

 Supply list:  Cardstock:  American Craft; Patterned papers: Echo Park (Sweet Summertime); Stickers: Echo Park; Felt owl and snail:  Basic Grey; Splash, heart and "too cute for words" sticker:  My Minds Eye; Viewfinder, butterfly card and title: Silhouette Cameo; Other: Gelatos.

Here is the Case File:

This is how I solved the case:

The Scheme:  All colours used.

Evidence: Polka dots, gingham, slug, sun, bird(owl).

Testimony:  I used the title "Cute" and I journaled about something that makes me soooo happy ;-)
"When I think of you...the song "you make me happy when skies are grey comes to mind."  Any day becomes AN AWESOME day the moment you become part of it.  I will always remember the excitement and delight I always feel when I have "a date" with you.  The excitement always build with each one of you that I pick up from your different schools...and then we are off to explore and enjoy our time together.  In this photo the two of you discovered that you could get up on the little fountain next to the lapa and then peek over the wall at what the neighbours were up to.  Never forget how much I love you. xx

I am also entering this for the Stuck?! sketch challenge.  I used this cute sketch by Laura Whitaker.

Some close ups:
 The pink splash and little chipboard heart is some left over My Minds Eye(Fine and Dandy)

 The little felt owl and snail is by Basic Grey and has been living in my stash for the longest time.

I cut the viewfinder and the butterfly card with the Silhouette Cameo.  Nifty little machine that comes in very handy to get that perfect detail on your page.  You will also see that I made circles on my background with Gelatos that I just rubbed into the paper to echo the background of the Case file image.

Thank you for the visit and thank you for leaving ♥
