My Buckaroo – CSI 198 and Creative Embellishments

Creative Embellishments is one of the sponsors for this month’s CSI, Color, Stories, Inspiration challenges, so several of us have been guest designing for some of their case files. 😀 They offer fun, inspiring challenges, with lots of prize ops, including the $30 gift voucher to the CE store that’s up for grabs! 😀 I had a blast solving case #198. The colors really work for me since blue is my favorite color and hey!…it’s also fave among my boys and my hubby! We all wear a lot of blue. lol Here’s how my page turned out:

For my evidence, I used stripes, trees, leaves, mesh, weather-related elements. I then combined hanging something, animals, and string by attaching 3 wood fish pieces with string and hanging it from the corner of the cardboard with a brad (though I did cut up and adhere the fish to my layout with foam dots so they wouldn’t tear off or get snagged on something else. 😀

I hope you enjoyed my project and are inspired to play along with the CSI challenges this month! We can’t wait to see what you create! 😀

Hurry! Hop on, Mom – Layout

For this layout I combined the July color challenge (with a twist) on Paper Secrets with a gorgeous sketch#88 by Ness on Let’s Capture These Sketches.

Be sure to stop by these great sites for some fun and inspiring challenges! Let’s Capture These Sketches features a new card and layout sketch each week. Card sketches are usually posted on Fridays and Layout sketches are posted on Saturday. Hope you stop by and play along! Paper Secrets features 4 new monthly challenges which are posted on the 1st of every month and all entries are due by the end of the month. This month, we have a color challenge, a manufacturer challenge, a card sketch and a layout sketch! Each completed project that is posted to the gallery gives you one entry for the monthly prize…a $25 gift certificate to the PS store!

These photos are from when Matthew was 2 and Madison was 3. They were pretending that the Earth was melting and they built a rocket ship to the moon. Surrounded by these toys…their space craft…they urgently yelled for me to hop on before it’s too late! I teasingly told them that there wasn’t any room, so Matthew frantically tried to grab and shift some objects to make room, not realizing that all he was doing was making it more cramped. He soon gave up. If you look closely at their faces, you can tell Madison didn’t find my teasing so amusing especially when Matthew gives up his expansion efforts and I tell them, well, I guess I have to stay here and fry. lol
