Journaling reads : "After Snowball fights and sledding in FRESH SNOW, you must have HOT CHOCOLATE!" I took this journaling straight from a post that I posted to Flickr. I'm not sure if you can tell or not from the pic, but my favorite part is how I cut a journaling card in half and put one part on top of the photo and the other part at the bottom for the date stamp. Then used an exacto-knife to cut the banner out (it's actually part of the journaling card) and stamped "sweet love" across the top of the card.
For this layout I used my January Scrapbook Circle kit (and a few items from a past kit or two), some flair from A Flair for Buttons, Studio AE January Stamp, and a few little tidbits from my stash. This is the first time that I have participated and submitted something to CSI (Color Stories Inspiration). This is the case file:
I used the colors, of course. My pieces of evidence are hearts, diecuts and punches. For the testimony I added a heart to my journaling spot.
Another first for me, I did a little distressing (I used the edge of my scissors) around the edges of my photo mat.
I'm pretty happy with the final product. Pretty simple, but I like it!
Coming soon : Project life share, and an update on goals (new and ongoing).
