#Happy – dt layout for SWAT {plus 3 challenges}

For my example for the SWAT 3 s’s challenge (stitching, stamping, spray/splatter), I might have gone a little overboard combining with other challenges…I love combining challenges…

Here’s what I came up with:


Creative Embellishments Social Hash Tags title piece
American Crafts cardstock
Unity Stamps
Smooch mists
Pitt artist pens
rub ons
Freckled Fawn Wood Chips and arrow clip
lace from my stash
Prima stencils
Distress ink, stain and paint
acrylic ink
Harmonie acrylic shapes used as a mask
I am Roses flowers
Prima leaves

I created my page using photos of Madison on a boat themed ride at the York Fair 2 years ago. I figured it would kind of go with the transporation theme with csi case file #87. Working with given palette, I selected arrows, wave shapes, stitching and mist from the evidence column and had my journaling wander across the page for the testimony portion.

This is the inspiration image and palette for case file #87:

To further embellish my page, I incorporated the Flying Unicorn Welcome Back challenge criteria which was a sort of check list of what to include on your page:

Lastly, I always love to incorporate a good sketch, so I decided to play along with the Stuck on U Sketches sketch challenge. Here’s the fabulous sketch I worked with:
