Scraps Of Elegance Joins CSI-Color Stories Inspiration For Case File #43


Hey everybody, just wanted to let you know that Scraps of Elegance is teaming up with CSI- Color Stories Inspiration  for the month of October as Special Investigators and Sponsors.

Join the fun, play along all month, and create something beautiful today with Scraps of Elegance!

Scraps of Elegance will be providing the prize this month for the winner at CSI. It's the gorgeous, elegant September kit, Nostalgia. This kit features the wonderful Pion Design Grandma's Schoolbook Collection and Renea Harrison's handmade butterflies. Scraps Of Elegance is the only club to feature these exquisite butterfly embellishments.

So, grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as CSI  opens Case File No. 43.
Here is the gorgeous color pallette:
And here is my entry as a Guest Detective:
I used a photo of my Aunt Annie's daughter Michelle on her wedding day. A formal event was one of the CSI Testimony Prompts.  My son, Draven did the photos for her wedding, and I used this close up that I colorized in Photoshop to match my layout.
I used this month's Scraps Of Elegance Kit and Add Ons -Dreams of You along with some stash pieces to create the layout.
 Here I did some stamping with a Rubber Café Paisley Stamp to create drama at the top and bottom of the Doilie layers. The butterflies are Champagne Dream Butterflies from my Etsy Shop.

Here is a peek a boo that I created, by tearing the paper and adding a fussy cut Doilie from paper in the Paper Add on and then added a brad from the embellishment add on.

I created a flower layer using flowers from the floral add on, past kits and my stash, and lots of leaves to fulfill one of the evidence prompts. I used the Dusty Attic frame to house my journaling, to fulfill the testimony prompt. The little lock and key are also Dusty Attic. The Scraps Of Elegance store has lots of Dusty Attic in stock ;)

In the background I used a black lace transparency, and on the photo, I used Rub Ons , both were from the  CSI Evidence Prompts.
I hope you get a chance to check it out and play along, and get in on some of those spectacular prizes!!! Thanks for stopping by!! ~Renea
