OMG - Single Page Layout
(CSI DT - Case File #238
+ Stuck?! Sketches Challenge)

There's a brand new case to solve at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration,
and take a look at how I solved it!

For more information on Case File #238 and all the wonderful prizes up for grabs,
click HERE.  You will also see how my fellow DT members solved it,
and let me tell you, they are a bunch of pretty fabulous detectives!

Let me explain how I solved this case!

The Scene in this case is oh so sweet!
I didn't go with the obvious reading theme, but I was inspired
by many of the clues in the image as described below.

The Scheme, offers you a wonderful palette of page gray, 
medium sky blue, mustard gold, white and kiwi green.

From the Evidence list, I chose: 
polka dots, text print, animals, string/twine, google eyes and enamel dots.

For the Testimony, I opted to combine two of the September prompts
from which I got the idea of using OMG as my title and writing about
how NOT boring any day spent with this little boy is!

I was also inspired by this fabulous sketch from Stuck?! Sketches:

And now let's look at some close-ups:

This cute little owl badge comes from my friend Caroline's Cuts2luv brand!
I added some googly eyes on him to fulfill one of the Evidence requirements.
Most of the chipboard pieces, except for the title, are from The Dusty Attic.

I used a lot of different paper strips inspired by the Stuck?! Sketch
that allowed me to incorporate most of the colours from the Scheme
and I added some handmade stitching with string from the Evidence list.

This 'handsome boy' is my friend Nathalie's son Tristan.  He's a spitfire!

I really hope that you will play along with us at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration!
There are many wonderful sponsors just waiting to give some awesome prizes away!

  8. La mise en page est super cute Nicole ! Merveilleuse façon de se débarrasser de bouts d'papier. Le petit hibou est trop mignon, surtout avec ses petits yeux ☺. Les coutures en zig-zag sont une belles touche. Beau travail, comme toujours d'ailleurs.
