" Sweet Smile "


Hi all and welcome.
I love this case file at CSI, Color Stories and Inspiration
" Major " Case File 155
The colours are soft and delicate and the theme " circle of  life".
I am so very happy to share this layout with you all.   I don't use the colour blue very often I am more than happy with how this layout turned out. These are some photos of my baby girl with her baby girls. 
I think thats a pretty good circle of life.
I love that they are doing the very Aussie past time of being at the beach and then the girls in their little bikini's, gorgeous.



The Case File:
The Scheme; Seafoam green, lavender,white, light sky blue and light taupe. All accounted for.
The Evidence; I used other transportation accents (surfboards) birds, circles, grid design, paint, Metal, labels, stamps, photo corners, 
The Testimony; I did a list of things we love about summer in Australia, They are on the tags.
Beach Bums
Sandy Toes
Together
Summer Memories
You and Me
I love this
Its a flip flop kind of day
Sun, surf and sand

NOW FOR THE CLOSE UP AND DETAILS

Love the bubble stencil I used on this one,
looks like its under the sea.
Used Color Bloom Glistening waves for colour.
Really loving the stickers from Kaisercraft
that accompany this
beautiful beachy paper.

The chippies have been inked and painted some
glue to adhere the micro beads.
I love to add bits of gauze into my backgrounds
 and yes the fish is upside down : )

Because I had to follow the sketch for this one
I did a layer of corrugated paper across the
 bottom and added
Gesso to give it a washed out look.

" Sweet Smile " such a great title for this special page

Added some shells that I had collected from our local beach.
I twirled some twine around
a pen, soaked it with water, let it dry
and came up with these little twirly bits to
poke out of my flower cluster.



This is the case file, what a ripper.
Big shout out to Em Stafrace for the great sketch
