CSI 139 - Solved

 I didn't think I was going to have time to solve this fabulous case file this week as I am in the middle of clearing and storing my craftroom ready for the big refit at the end of this month.
But I worked a lot quicker than I thought and I managed to come up with a layout that I am quite pleased with.
Also this week there is the added bonus of a sketch by Em from Page Drafts, the design team & guest designers have done a fabulous job seriously go check them out here
This was the case file
And here is my take using the sketch

Something Fuzzy (the blue brads are velvety)
Mini Brads
2 of something ( I used 2 clouds and 2 sketchy circle frames)

Journal about pets/animals
I have tucked my journaling on the tag behind the photo it reads;

Zakynthos is home to the endangered Loggerhead Turtle
The Bay of Laganas  is the most important breeding ground for the Mediterranean Loggerhead, you can take a boat trip around the bay in the hope of spotting one of these magnificent creatures.
I was lucky to snap this pic of one just poking his head up as if to say Hi.
It saddens me to think that yet another of our glorious species is in an endangered position.

A couple of close ups

I decided to create a mixed media type background to represent the large triangle on the sketch, I used a Bo Bunny template and sponged some ink onto the paper . I then used a Cocoa Daisy grid stamp and a colour pastel pencil to add some more interest. A little splattered ink and a few sequins finished it off nicely.
The papers I used were from an old Delish designs paper called Buffet, the "cool" sticker is also quite old. I just love to use up older stash to make way for the new, ok so the new find there way in regardless but for a minute it sounded good lol
I hope you will find time to join in the fun this week
