Holy Crab! {CSI Case File No. 234}

We've got a brand-new challenge over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Here's the page I made using photos of Tracee and me goofing around with my selfie stick. We were in Chestertown and there were a bunch of sculptures sticking out of the water. We thought it would be amusing to make some "scared" faces in front of this giant crab claw.

Here's the Case File. Clues I used. Evidence: animals transparent stuff, dashed lines, triangles, rub-ons, plus signs, sun, scallops. Testimony: Document a summer getaway.

Here are some details. The cute little puffy starfish is a Jolee's sticker. The triangles in the background are rub-ons by K&Co, and the plus signs were made with texture paste and a stencil by The Crafter's Workshop. 

The little fish were cut from and Echo Park paper.  The flair badge is from A Flair for Buttons.

Here's another puffy sticker from that Jolee's pack. So cute with the googly eyes, and a little shimmery too.

I hope you'll come play with us. You can see Tracee's page with the same photos in our reveal. And don't forget--we have seven sponsors donating awesome prize packs and gift certificates for our players:

Happy Mother's Day {Stuck?! Sketches July 15 Challenge}

We've got an awesome new sketch challenge at Stuck?! Sketches. I made this page for my niece who was celebrating her very first Mother's Day this year.

Here's the sketch. I stayed pretty true to the sketch but flipped it horizontally, mainly because of the space in the photo was on the right and I wanted to add embellishments there.

Here are some details. I used the Felicity Jane London kit and added a few bits from my stash. How sweet are those little labels and that lovely chipboard title? I fussy cut the flowers out of a patterned paper.

That circle is a die cut from Simply Graphic. I had it sitting on my desk leftover from another layout and thought it would work nicely here. There were a bunch of colors in that Persian rug that sort of clashed with the papers I wanted to use, so I made that part of the photo black and white. The chipboard cat is from Crate Paper's Cute Girl collection. So cute!

A shot of the tags that came in the kit.

You'll want to come play with us for a chance to win prizes from our sponsors:
