Happy {CSI Case File No. 254 and Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday}

We've got a brand new challenge over at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. I made another page for one of my students:

Here's the Case File that inspired the page. I went the traditional CSI clues route for this page: Evidence: solid background, stripes, floral pattern, flowers, ribbons, labels, bling, puffy stickers, tissue paper, text print (in place of the book page), gold elements, and vintage elements (in the form of that slide frame). Testimony: Write on a label.

I was stuck for how to begin my page, so I headed over to Paper Issues to see if I could find a sketch, and I found their Sunday Scraplift challenge. I love Anita's layout so, so much, and as you can see, I pretty much scraplifted it literally.

Here are some close-ups. My layout started with those giant pom-pom flowers, which reminded me of these tissue paper Martha Stewart flowers I've had in my stash for at least 7 years. The chipboard butterflies and florals  are from the Simple Stories I Am collection. That pink chipboard frame is by Crate Paper. Instead of a book page, I used a text print. The tab above the photo is an old Pink Paislee. The die-cut leafy element is by Simply Graphic.

The floral paper is by Crate Paper Maggie Holmes. The typewriter is also from the I Am collection. I really wanted to put that "You are my sunshine" to look like it was coming out of the typewriter, but I just couldn't bring myself to cover up that pretty rose-gold foiled heart.

 The pink papers are from Maggie Holmes too, as is that gold phrase sticker. I added the yellow rhinestone for one of the clues.

I hope you'll play along with CSI for a chance to win a prize from or generous sponsors We've got 15 prizes up for grabs this month! And don't forget to check out that scraplift challenge over at Paper Issues. They award gift certificates to their store too!
