Mom and Me, By the Sea {CSI Case File No. 91}

I've been completely thrown off my schedule by the death of my cat this week. I should've posted this days ago, but better late than never.

Here's the Case File. Quite unusual colors, but I love the way they look together.

I'm making a book for my friend whose mom passed away last year. Clues I used...Evidence... bird, wet medium, stripes, metal accents, something iridescent, speech bubbles; Testimony: Journal in a speech bubble.

I started with a sketch from ScrapFriends. I totally messed up, and had to add those waves. I had those little tiles of patterned paper and thought I needed something else, so I added the colored texture paste with the stencil, and I put it too far down. And I'm such a miser that I didn't want to waste paper, so the waves were  my remedy.

Here are some details: I cut the waves out with my Silhouette Cameo and outlined them. I spritzed them with Heidi Swapp mist, which is iridescent, as are the sequins I added. I added some little Studio Calico birdies that I love so much.

I'm in love with these Crate Paper slide frames. I wish there were more of the smaller ones in the pack. 

You still have the rest of the weekend to play with this Case File. You should go check out what the rest of the team and guest designers made. Awesome stuff, as always!

I think this is a masterpiece. Really. What you thought was a mistake - made you make "repairs." And what you have is something incredible! I wish my mistakes turned out half as good! Fantastic job!

Heartfelt sympathy in the passing of your feline fur baby. You blessed your kitty by providing a loving home and while this is a tender time, may you soon be able to smile through your tears as you remember special times together.
