Here is the page I made. Clues I used: Evidence: Patterned ribbon, corrugation, border punch, crown accent, fibers; Testimony, Inspiration Word: Some day.
I used the current sketch from Creative Scrappers as inspiration. My page often looks very different from the sketch since I scrap 8 x 8 and it's hard to fit everything on the page.
This next picture shows a little jar I cut out from this week's edition of CSI Printables, which you can find in the Case File reveal; if you scroll all the way to the bottom, they're attached. I used it to indicate that I have journaling on the back. I used some old fiber to thie around the jar. That sweet British flag heart is in the Printables. The "on back" is cut from a patterned paper tear strip (it said "coordinating pattern on back.")
Here's my journaling: She calls herself The Crazy Brit. She's anything but crazy. She's kind. She's supportive. She's funny. She's smart. She's wise. She's creative. She's a super-talented scrapper. She's my very close friend. And it's my very dear wish to meet her in person. I want to hug her and sit next to her and just hang out and talk for hours and go shopping at the scrapbook store together. Only problem is, we are separated by a very big ocean.
Luckily, we have Skype (The Crazy Brit is her Skype name), which is how Tracee came to be my very good friend. We talk just about every day. I look forward to getting up early in the morning so we can chat before I leave for work. We scrap together on the weekends. We even had a birthday party for her via Skype last November.
It's funny how you can have such a good, close friend that you've never actually met. But Tracee is the kind of person that just makes me feel at home. She brings sunshine to my mornings with her awesome, warm smile. She makes me laugh so hard with her witty remarks. She's a sympathetic listener when I've got woes and always has sage advice. She's always got great suggestions when I'm stumped with a scrapbook page. She kicks my ass when I'm too lazy to scrap or clean my scrap desk. Sometimes we just have our webcams on and we're scrapping together or surfing the web, not saying much, but it's cozy and fun knowing a kindred spirit is right beside me, even though she's really an ocean away.
Some day I'm going to meet Tracee in real life and hug her and sit right next to her. We've got big plans for her to come, and I'm already fixing up the guest room. I'm hoping it's sooner rather than later. Tracee, love you, girl!
Here's a peek at the title. I found the right blue in an ancient Mustard Moon paper, and those chipboard letters are old Heidi Swapp letters, of which I seem to have an infinite supply. The tiny letters spelling out "the" are Lily Bee, and I put them on a polka dot punched out of an old Wild Asparagus paper. I inked the edges and used a fine-tip pen to draw around the circle.
Here's a peek at some other elements from the CSI Coordinates. The circular label in the background is by Jenni Bowlin, and the scalloped label is by K& Company.
I dug out a bunch of scraps for my banners, including a printed vellum bit.
The Case File reveal is just gorgeous, as always, and I'm so, so excited to have Emma Trout, my scrappy idol, as our Special Agent this month! We have an awesome new sponsor for June, Little Black Dress Kit Club, and they're providing 3 prizes for us this month, so you'll definitely want to come and play.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
