CSI 83 - Solved

You might notice that there is a lack of case file 82, it's because I wrote it all out and then for some reason it didn't save :( With all the excitement of my Big announcement - Oh did I mention I made the BoBunny DT??? hehehe
I will post 82 sometime next week
Without further ado onto case file 83

A travel theme is just perfect for continuing to document my trip to Maryland 

stripes - stripey brad
travel accents
punches - ok so this may be stretching it,
 but I did use a punch to make the holes in the flag!
grid pattern
ledger pattern

Yay this week I got them all 

document a journey - either literal or figurative
This photo doesn't so much have a specific story to it (in fact we did this on the last day because we had forgotten every other time we went out) rather it is a representation of the beginning of many journeys that Debbi and I shared together

I wanted to add the little canvas covered chipboard car but it was a funky brown so I dabbed it with white Stampin Up ink to make it more fitting. The word go sits on a flag that was originally an oval journaling sticker then I punched some holes in the flag and used string to attach it to the back of the car. A little confession - I accidentally made a brown ink stain above the car so I went through my word sticker drawer and added some fun words from Authentique.
I wanted to replicate the map/brad embellishment in the picture so used a clock button by Teresa Collins and added an american crafts brad through the centre.
I cut the globe on my cameo originally for a different layout but thought it worked well on this one I stamped some text onto smooth white cardstock and added it behind the globe shape.

I love these bling circles as they sparkle without being to "pretty". I cut some corrugated chevrons to draw attention to us in the car. A little machine stitching here and there and I was done.

Hope you can join in with us this week we would love to see what you create from this case file

  2. A brilliant layout. Every little detail is so perfect, and that globe is genius! Love this so much. One of my all-time faves of yours!
