Scrap 365 & CSI case file 24 - solved

Been a while since I played along at CSI but this weeks palette was so inspiring I just had to try and solve it
This was the case file
And here is how I solved the case
I used this sketch from Scrap 365
silver accents - Brads and small silver plaque (behind the pink rose)
 jewels - bling
sparkly things - bling
  use gesso to white-wash your paper or elements
use circles

 Write 3 interesting things about your subject.
I tucked the journaling behind the pic, as you can see I hadn't planned to do it this way but it was the way it ended up lol
I found a pot of texture paste in my stash, it says on the label that it expired in 2010 but I had never opened it and it worked just fine with a drop of black acrylic paint and a brick mask, why is it when we create a cool background we end up covering most of it up again? lol
In case you are thinking I have forgotten the red it is there, the tiny polka dot paper has got red polka dots on!
I tried the punch distressed edge that I have seen on a few layouts and I must say I love the effect!! Thank you for the inspiration ladies!
This is another page for my "Baby Girl's" 21st album. I'm doing quite well so far I think it's 8 pages and her birthday isn't until Feb 2013!!!
Had real fun with this case file, why not go check it out HERE for yourselves you won't be disappointed

June Scrappy Chics

You wanna check out the June kit from Scrappy Chics this month, Melinda has put together a great mix of papers and embellies. I got to work with the main kit this month and here are the cards, notebook & bookmark I put together with it
I love this Pink Paislee paper from the Indigo Blue range, it's one of my favourite colour combos. I added glossy accents to the dots on the cover of the notepad, the notepad itself was a cheapie from Wilkinson's and I just covered the front. Can you spot the deliberate mistake on the bookmark!! (I stuck the Jenni Bowlin labels on upside down lol)

The pretty ribbon made a neat border across this card, I added the pins and hand stitching, also got to play with one of my new Die-namics small doily dies (I can see me using these a lot!)

I made this card for Leon for Father's day from the dogs!! and did you know they always buy him a pressie too!!! I used the new Amy Tan jar stamp (another that may well feature on lots of projects in the future) plus I recently got these dog stamps in a stamp lucky dip that I purchased, how cute are they?
For more ideas on using the kit pop on over to the Gallery for more inspiration
Will be back over the weekend to share my layouts with you
