OH SO SWEET - Single Page Layout
(CSI DT - Case File 240
+ SCRAP THE GIRLS October Challenge)

I'm getting really good at detective work, I must say!
I have yet another solved case under my belt, 
and this time it's a sweet one!

This is Case No. 240 from CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.
Click HERE to find out how to play along and to see lots more
inspiration from all my fellow CSI DT detectives!

I love all CSI case files, but I have to say that this one is my fave so far!

Here's how I solved it:

Did you know that October 15th is National Cake Decorating Day?!
Who knew that such a day even existed?! Well, it does and this case's Scene 
is inspired by it.  And I got inspired by the yummy cakes in the image!

The Scheme consists of a very feminine palette which includes 
pale pink, pale turquoise blue, scarlet, black and white.

From the Evidence list, I chose: 
polka dots, stripes, a heart, cupcakes, flowers,
texture paste, pearls and a sprinkle of microbeads.

For the Testimony, I decided to journal about my love of eating,
and of course, that is where the cupcakes come into play,
and I decorated my journaling spot with some fancy 
pink parentheses and a sparkling jewel heart.

I decided to play along with another awesome challenge
in the creation of this layout and that is
Scrap The Girls' October 'Think Pink' challenge.

Now let's take a closer look at my page!

I've had the wooden cupcake and word 'eat' in my stash for months,
and I knew that I wanted to use it somehow in a title 'If You Are What You Eat'.
This case file file seemed the perfect occasion!

The title was created with a combination of wooden word, chipboard word (Dusty Attic)
and alpha stickers from a vintage Carta Bella collection called Paris Girl.
The colours of the papers were perfect for the Scheme. I just added a little blue.

I decorated my cupcake with pearls and microbeads...
and the lovely flair is from Cuts2luv.

As described above, I decorated my journaling spot.
It's true... I love food a bit too much, but what's not to love, right?

I actually went and bought some cupcakes to take the photos for this layout.
And yes, of course, I had to eat them!  They were... 'oh so SWEET!' hehe

Thank you for dropping by!
