Celebrating Freedom | CSI Case File No. 325

I created this layout for our second July Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.

Here are the Case File and clues for this challenge:

Does anybody ever read my blog posts? I've decided that for my CSI layouts, I'm just going to share about the clues I used because it takes a lot of time to write up my blog posts, and I'm not sure anybody's even reading them anymore.

I'm making layouts for a friend and I was so excited to find these photos of her darling children to use for this Case File. I brightened up the color scheme for my page and used a lot of the Evidence clues, including stripes, stars, wood, 4th of July-themed elements, jar, flowers, flags, elements, and metal. I had cut out a tricycle from the same patterned paper I used, but I just couldn't make it work, so I changed it to a wagon. From the Testimony clue, I obviously am documenting 4th of July and also using the Inspiration word "freedom."

So here are some closeups:

I'm still reading, generally through a blog reader. I love seeing the detailed shots of your pages and reading about the older stash you've incorporated into your layouts, that's what has always inspired me to dig into my stash.

I always read your posts. You are one of my favorite designers and would scrap lift everyone of your pages if I had the time. I was touched by your recent post about your journey and soul searching concerning your husband's brain aneurysm. I went through the same experience when I was diagnosed with breast cancer 4 years ago which tested my faith and I've been a Christ follower for a long time. I am stronger because of the experience. Please keep posting and I will still read and try to post comments.
