CSI 109 - Solved & Once upon a Sketch

I combined 2 challenges for this weeks case file, and used the great sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch
This was the palette this week
and this was the sketch over at OUAS
with the theme
                                                "Totally addicted to...."
and this was my page, that is all about my addiciton and love of books 

Book Pages
Silver Accents
Stack Something
Use Heat - I embossed the pedestal
Mimic the architectural accents

I used a quote: (by Charles William Eliot)
Books; Are the Quietest and most constant of Friends.
They are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors,
and the most patient of teachers

this said exactly what I wanted to say so I went with that.

I did lots of stamping for my background, and as one of the pieces of Evidence was birds I took the opportunity to use my fave bird stamp by Tim Holtz.

Hope you find time to check out what the other fab designers did here, and after such inspiration you get to play along this week
