Please Stay Thin {CSI Case File No. 144}

 File No. 144 is open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

I used this prompt from "Thought Questions"

Here's my page. Clues I used...Evidence: Paint/watercolor (sort of), polka dots, stripes, triangles, lightbulbs, tickets, clips, clouds, ampersand, phrase stickers, and metal. Testimony: Thought Questions.

Here are some details: I used scraps from a variety of manufacturers, including Pebbles (yellow clouds), My Mind's Eye (and the stripe and the ampersands). That awesome lightbulb is by 2Crafty. I used gelatos and mist to create a watercolor-ish look on my background. I used a variety of stamps. *The Truth is by  Amy Tangerine, the triangles are by Glitz Design, and the ledger is by Marion Smith Designs. The pointing finger is a Heidi Swapp stamp and directs you to my hidden journaling on the back, which is a longer letter to my younger self pleading with her to stay fit and thin because I have forever struggled with my weight. My weight problem seriously plagues me.

I added a little Magic Mesh for texture. The label is by Fontwerks, and the brad is by My Mind's Eye.

I tucked a My Mind's Eye ticket and a journaling card by My Mind's Eye behind the layers. You can't tell how thin I really was because of the ginormous shadow behind me, but I was thin once upon a time. I even had a collarbone, LOL. I think I was fifteen in that picture.

Anyway, you must stop by and see all the fabulous pages by our design team and guest designers.




Debbi, I have never been thin in my whole life. I can completely identify with your struggle. I know it is important, and I fight it every day.

Great LO and adorable photos! I especially like the texture, journaling and layering.
