CSI Case No. 261 - Italy

Storms are really gearing up - clouds are rolling in, it's getting dark.  I'm so happy to have a hobby that doesn't require a lot of electricity - just in

This page took a while to come together.  It's my resolution to Case No. 261 from CSI Case Files.

This one was a bit tricky for me.  I almost caved in and worked on school page, but I stuck to my guns and found some Disney pics to work on.
These pics are from Italy in Epcot.  The colors seemed to work very well with the color palette.

I dug through the box of scraps and pulled out as much as I could (a HUGE goal of mine is to use them instead of storing them!)
The flowers were found in the basket - along with the leaves.
I also added a couple of butterflies.  Hidden between a flower and leaf is an acrylic dot with an owl on it
The Italy stamps were from a sticker set from Nostalgiques.
I also added black marker to the edges of the papers and mats to emulate the doodles on the case file.

Ledger paper print (scrap behind the photos)
Cat / other animal (butterflies and owl)
Clock (on the journal card)
Stamps (random stickers)

The journaling on the card is in "list form"

The Scheme:
Bright White
Sage Green
Dark Sage Green
Candy Apple Red

Made it before the storm shut down the computer!
