Summertime Color {CSI Case File No. 31}

We have a new Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, and since it's a new month, we have a new sponsor, Peace, Love, and Scrapbooking, and a new theme: Down by the Sea.

I combined our Case File with Nadia's sketch and journaling prompt over at Once Upon a Sketch to make my page.


And here's my page. Clues I used: Evidence: liquid medium, repetition, circles, solid background; Testimony: Itinerary and inspiration word, color.

I used lots of old stash on my page, along with some yellow mist and yellow and green ink on a stamp in the background and instead of stitching, I drew outlines with pen. In case you're wondering, the blue toes with the rhinestone sandals are mine. :)


Here are some details. That clear flower is from Ki Memories. It came on a sheet. The fuzzy pink brad is by Sassafras Lass. Those circles are cut out of K&Co. paper.


This photo shows some of the papers I used. The pink is K&Co.; the green polka dot paper is Luxe Designs; the yellow polka dot paper is by Echo Park, and that awesome circle paper is in the CSI Coordinates.The yellow transparency is by Hambly. I printed it on photo paper to give it vibrancy. At the last minute, I added those brads to the title.


The fabric clouds are old Love, Elsie. They're so cute. That lime is from a K&Co. paper. The little phrase and word stickers are from the Coordinates.


The white border is from a Cheery Lynn die. I used turquoise staples to attach it. That teal circle patterned paper is by Hambly.


Here's my journaling. Not sure why the photograph made it blue instead of teal. Anyway, some of you know Monica's story from the pages I've been posting over the last month. Monica is my best friend's daughter. Her 23-year-old husband died last month after a 6-year battle with bone cancer. We had these pedicures a couple of days after James's death.  The "Color Key" tells a little behind the meaning of the colors.


I hope you'll go check out our reveal. Lots of colorful eye candy! And please play along with us. We love to see how people solve the Case File!

Thank  you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!

The very first thing that jumped out from the screen was that very, very special line about the reason behind Monica's pink toe nails!! Heaven really has a way of giving treasures to those who deserve them best and God knows Monica does. I am absolutely overwhelmed at the news *smiling from ear to ear* Pardon me for forgetting about your page. Amazing details, just love the Hambly and the fuzzy brad, everything is just perfect as always! xoxo
