9 Birthdays | CSI

Our August Cold Case file at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration has gone live; and it’s another beaut!

No photo description available.

I immediately thought of this image as one of birthdays and / or milestones. And seeing as how my daughter has recently celebrated her 9th birthday, I went ahead and took total advantage of that theme! Here’s what I created:

I used most of the colours in the inspiration image for this one.
I used a number as part of my title and sentiment. This photograph is of my daughter just before her birthday party started. Inspiration I drew from the image was polka dots, birthday elements, and a grid design.

Here are a few more images taken of my layout:

We have some yummy purple up amongst the stunning colour palette and beautiful mood board, today over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration!

No photo description available.

Yummy, right???

Here is how I solved this case:

My colour palette includes black and white, pink, purple and a splash of gold.

I drew inspiration from the stripes, flowers, leaves and twigs and added those to my layout. My title has slanted script, just like the main part of the title of the inspiration image. I had some chippies that looked really close to the flower print on one of the hot air balloons and the girls dress – so I added them to my layout too. I spattered with a little gold mist and also incorporated some gold elements. As the inspiration image has a fashion theme, I decided to scrap (and journal) about my daughter’s sudden fashion sense awareness!

I’m just LOVING this next phase in your growth! I am no longer able to shop for you, as you have already developed your own taste – which I keep on getting wrong, so best I just give up already!

I LOVED working with this month’s challenge at Scrap The Girls!

I decided to go with all things camera-related so added various elements as such. I’ve also added in some hearts to copy the image and also the ‘like’ option within Instagram. I used an old photo with an (old) Instagram filter and I used a rainbow of colours – again as inspiration from the image provided.
