Sweet Little Baker Girl | CSI Cold Case No. 320

Our mid-month reveal is live at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Here's the layout I made for our stash-busting Cold Case:

Here are the Case File and clues for this challenge:

I used lots of old bits and pieces from my stash. Clues I used: old patterned papers from Crate Paper and Lily Bee in the colors of the Case File; lace; doilies; kitchen-themed products, buttons, jewels; a paper scrap from October Afternoon, a mix of textures, stacking elements, and circular items.

Here are some details. I choose the images for the Case File, and I promise I didn't choose based on these photos. I found the photos just recently on my husband's niece's Instagram, and I knew I had to use them for this Case File! I had fun poring through my stash in search of elements that would help tell my story and also match the color scheme. The Crate Paper chipboard cake stand was my starting point. I always add at least one heart to the pages I give away, and I found a red puffy heart to add to the cake stand. And then I found a paper with those fun little jars.  I wanted to add some cutesy elements and found these glow-in-the-dark puffy stickers, and the color had a blueish-green tint that was perfect.

That wire whisk is from a Simple Stories collection, I think. I never throw anything away because you just never know when you're going to need it for a layout, like that old Cosmo Cricket sugar sticker which is not that attractive on its own, but worked perfectly in that cluster and with the color. The scale was cut out of a patterned paper. I don't know that I thought I would ever use that either! I'm always thrilled to be able to use some of my zillions of buttons. The sparkly frame, also in the perfect colors is from an old Crate Paper collection, I think.

Here are some details showing my title, which started with that "sweet" label and then I found that perfect fabric brad. I also got to use real lace on my page and some old brads.

How fun is that little bunny that looks like he's handing her a cup of sugar. I'm really pleased that I was able to find so many perfect details for this layout.

I hope you'll come play along for the fun of it and also for a chance to win a prize from one of our 7 generous sponsors! Share your creations in our Facebook Group for a chance to win!
