We have a lovely nautical themed Case File for you to play along with at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.

Here is what I put together for this challenge:

I used dotty and striped paper in my layering; and a wet medium on my background to create splashes to fit in with the theme. I was inspired by the circles of the portholes, trees and life savers, so I added in some circular chipboard pieces. Lastly, I was inspired by the arched windows and so I added a tag of similar shape. All my chipboard pieces are from 2Crafty Chipboard.

I worked with 2 shades of light blue, navy blue, white and red.

My journalling is the inspiration word ‘gift’.

Shortly after my beloved cat was killed last year, I received a private message from a Facebook friend in Australia. She kindly, generously, amazingly offered to have some of my cats ashes set in a pendant, in resin. I was completely floored and touched by this kindness shown to me – by someone who barely knows me and someone I may never meet. This is definitely one of the most special and treasured gifts I will ever receive.

How adorable is this picture?! Here is what I put together:

As you can see, I tried to recreate the image as best I can, into my layout. It was so much fun working on this one! I loved the vibrancy mixed together with the more subtle shades. I was so excited to find some chipboard flowers in my 2Crafty stash that closely resembled the flowers in the picture! My pretty title is also from 2Crafty.

Everything about Case File 288 just smacks of deliciously edible! It was easy for me to stick to the theme of this challenge, seeing as how my daughter has a weak spot for anything ice-cream related!

Here is the layout I created to solve this case.

I used pink, teal, white, chocolate brown and cantaloupe. I was inspired by the dots, so I used some papers with a dotty print. I also used some stripes to break the dotty pattern and then I added an ice-cream element to finish off. My lovely title chippie is from 2Crafty.

My journaling contains the IW ‘best’.

Without a doubt, ice-cream in any form is your absolute favourite! Come rain or shine, you will find a way to get it into your mouth! On this particular day, it was rather chilly and a bit rainy, but that didn’t matter to you! Just look at that happy face!

I love this months moodboard and palette at Scrap The Girls… the image gave me some mixed messages / feelings – but I love it.

As with the image, I tried to use more subtle shades predominantly and then have the darker colours merely pop here and there (dark shades of burgundy). Here is my piece:

I also wanted to recreate the ‘swish’ effect of her fur collar, so I chose these chippies – which are from 2Crafty (along with my title).
