CSI 100 - Solved

Wow case file 100 already! Congrats to Debbi on creating a warm happy scrappy home at CSI, and reaching the 100th case file I decided that I would do a page all about her.
I know I say it every week but a gorgeous palette to work with this week
and my page looks something like this!
I say something like this as it was very difficult to photograph due to the fact that the pale mist I used created all sorts of unwanted shadows when I was taking the pics
I found this quote on pinterest and it summed everything up quite simply
You make me laugh so hard the tears roll down my legs(it's an age thing LOL)
I have also written a letter to Debbi that is hidden away down behind the photo I won't share it all but it starts like this.
You will look at this layout and say "oh that pic of me is terrible, look at my fat ankles and my big head" and in reply to that I say "Debbi you are a beautiful person both inside and out, you have a heart the size of the world and it encompasses all. I am so lucky to call you my Best Friend" . . . . . . .

a couple of close ups

I am a little obsessed with triangles on my layouts at the moment, I cut quite a few on my cameo along with this title. After I had stuck the solid ones down I then cut a "frame" from some of the waste and layered it behind my title.
I have incorporated a few things that Debbi loves like the skeleton leaves and of course the doilies that we had to have!

This sheet of cardstock was headed for the bin as I had tried to create a watercolour background and it didn't turn out how I wanted it to, I then was using it just as a test piece but when I went to throw it I laid my photo down on it and thought hmmm this could work after all.
I printed out Debbi's DT frame for her layouts and layered it behind my papers, I think it looks kinda cool

I really enjoyed creating my layout for this weeks file and just want to say again Congrats Debbi on reaching 100 (you don't look a day over 25 LOL)
