Cuddle Moment {CSI Cold Case + Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday}

I made another page for CSI's February Cold Case, and I also played with Paper Issues' Scraplift Sunday challenge:

Here's Jennifer's amazing layout that we had to scraplift for this challenge. I fell in love with this the minute I saw it. I have that same scallop paper, and was hoping to use it, but then plans changed, as they often do when we sit down to scrap!

So, here's the Cold Case File--these new Case Files are intended for players to dig deep into their old stash.

And here are the clues:

Here are some details. When I made the clues for this Case File, I had in mind those owls from an old Sassafrass Lass paper, but when I sat down to scrap, I saw Jennifer's layout on my computer screen, and it made me think of the borders on Sassafras Lass' papers. I had this beautiful photo of my friend and her kids sitting on my scrap desk, and when I pulled out my Sass folder, there was the Indie Girl collection, and the colors and the vibe matched perfectly, so I went with these decade-old papers. I'm notorious for buying papers without pictures in mind, and the papers go unused until the perfect page comes along.

I found this old metal frame that had a vintage feel and the pink matched nicely with the Sass papers. That grid paper is also really old, by Scenic Route. Another clue was to use buttons. I have SO many buttons, so I knew I needed to take the opportunity to use some on my layout.

Old flowers were another clue, and boy are these old. Remember these old Prima flowers--they were probably the second kind of flowers they came out with--remember how they came in milk bottles? I fussy cut some flowers from an Indie Girl paper to make a cluster with the buttons and added some old K&Co. word stickers that perfectly matched the salmon color in the papers. I was pleased to find these blue Thickers that matched. I used the asterisks for the centers of the flowers.

I hope you'll come play in our challenges. Look at the sponsors we have donating prizes this month at CSI:
