Today I’m sharing my take on Case File 276 at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration. I wanted to do something different with this one – though I did incorporate my usual layering style (I just can’t get away from it!) Here are the clues for you to work with:

And this is what I created.

From the image, I chose to work with yellow, red, white, with both dark and light blues.

And in case it was not immediately obvious – my primary source of inspiration was that delicious sun in the top right hand corner! Though the little girl and the kits are divine – it was that sun that kept on grabbing me! I just had to recreate it! I also used paper with polka dots and stripes and then I added in another sun, a cloud and some adorable pinwheels. It’s been an absolute age since I’ve used stitching on my layout, so I decided to go with it!

My journaling is from a March Writing Prompt – namely, what is something you are looking forward to.

Well – this picture of my precious child was taken in the most glorious rock pool out in the Cederberg; where we spent a holiday at the beginning of this year. It was a little bit of a gentle hike to get there, but every step in the heat was worth it! On our second day there, we decided that we HAD to venture back and so we have booked a longer stay there at the beginning of next year. It’s not only the scenery and the pools that I am looking forward to – it’s also the fact that there is NO internet / cellular connection and you are pretty much forced to do nothing but read or lounge in the water or nap… or whatever!

Here are some close up shots:
