Scraps Of Elegance Joins CSI For Case File #41


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. 41.
Here is the gorgeous color pallette:

And here is my entry as a Guest Detective:
I used lots of layers of past kit papers, flowers and embellishments to pull the CSI color scheme together.

Here you can see where I stamped with puffies for lots of texture and added some of those Flourish With A Bling Pearls for accents. The ruffle (one of the CSI evidence promps)  is crepe paper (another evidence prompt). I coated my edges with lots of tinted glitter glass and seed beads to get even more yummy texture.

The mat behind the photo is painted corrugated board with seed bead accents and shimmer paints.

I chose a sweet Vintage image of 2 little girls sharing Secrets, the Testimony Prompt of the Case File, and also journaled with "Curiousity Is Lying In Wait For Every Secret."

This was my first time playing along with the challenge, and it is definitly challenging, but also a lot of fun. 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 to share a few secrets, but don't worry I won't tell-lol!! ~Renea
