Sounds {CSI Case FIle No. 74}

We have a sweet and lovely Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration this week:

Clues I used...Evidence: metal, rolled fabric flowers, flowers, leaves, cabochons; Testimony: I decided to go with a childhood memory. I wasn't sure what I wanted to document, so I looked to the prompts from the Case File and hovered over Saturday and found "List all the sounds you used to hear at your grandparents' house," so that's what I went with.

Here are some details. Most of the papers I used on my page are really old, except for the jar (American Crafts Dear Lizzy) and the black stripe (BasicGrey Clippings). The yellow polka dots are by Jillibean Soup.  The flower paper is by K&Co.The leaves were cut out of a We R Memory Keeper paper. The background is cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.

I thought I'd be able to recollect a lot more sounds from my Gram's house, but only three stuck out in my mind as I journaled, and I listed them on the little spot tucked behind the photo: 1) the shk-shk-shk sound of Gram's sewing machine; 2) really old records, like Herb Alpert and Englebert Humpberdink; and 3) Donny Osmond on the radio under my pillow.

Here are some of flowers. I made the rolled fabric flower out of a torn piece of muslin that I died with ink and mist. The pink fabric flower is by Making Memories. The silk flowers are from Michael's, and there's a little yellow cabochon flower tucked in there too.  The sweet gold-rimmed brads are by Dear Lizzy. I always forget to use my embossing folders, but I managed to use one on this layout. 

As I was carrying my layout upstairs, I glanced at my page and thought that raspberry circle didn't look right where it was, so I took my layout back to my scrap room and tried to move it, which wasn't easy since I had stitched down the background. I managed to move it but then I didn't like where I moved it, so back it went. Unfortunately, I had stretched out that Silhouette-cut piece, which you can see from the shadows.

We have another beautiful reveal, as always. Come see!

Your layout is beautiful Debbi...I love the background circle you cut with the Silhouette....and the circles you stuck behind it. It came together beautifully and I love the vibrant colors.

Die cut background is so cool Debbi. I love how you have been using your silhouette I am so bad with mine. The way you have coloured some of the circles is so clever and the flowers are just lovely. So beautiful
