CSI case file 167 - solved

Despite my lack of shares I have been solving cases over at CSI, one of the reasons I don't share so often is, I wonder to myself, does anyone really read blogs much anymore? So much is posted on FB and if I am honest it is often much easier to hit like and leave a comment there than it is on a blog. Also I have yet to find a way to take decent pictures of my layouts and projects, the weather here is often so dull and my house isn't blessed with a lot of natural light, so if anyone has any tip or ideas they would like to share I would love to hear them.
I have recently set up a FB page for my crafty things and it's called It's a Creative Life if anyone wants to look me up.
So enough of my waffling and on with the case file, for this case file I used a sketch from My Creative Sketches

Bo Bunny have a new collection called Penny Emporium and it has this gorgeous Steampunk style to it that I am rather liking at the moment.
The case file looked like this

and the sketch looked like this
Transportation accents
Document a childhood friendship
As this is a page for my Granddaughter's Euro Disney album I am going to get her to write in her own words about the pictures and of her friendship with her best friend Laci.
I used some texture paste and a memory box stencil to create the background, I also used a cloud stencil and gently inked the clouds on in the pale pale blue from the palette. I found these cute Disney paperclips in my stash and I have no clue where they came from but they were perfect to add the Disney element into my page,
I did lots of fussy cutting from the Penny Emporium collection and I also got a chance to use some of the metal bookplates that I have been hoarding in my stash forever, a mix of old and new supplies always makes me happy.
I hope you will find time to check out the challenge over at CSI and take a look at the other DT pages there is some awesome inspiration to be had
