CSI: Color Stories Inspiration is Five! Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration! I had so much fun with their challenges during my time on the team and when I was asked to play along for one of the anniversary month challenges, I was not going to say no! I haven't scrapped in awhile so I have to say that everything was a challenge, but I love the colors and inspiration

Click HERE to see the challenge and all of the layout examples from amazing present and past designers.

and here is my layout

I used a fun background paper from DCWV that has sparkles in it and then cut a giant snowflake from white cardstock with my silhouette. The vellum under the photo is there so that I could use my pretty typewriter to journal on the edge of it. :)

The inspiration I used were snowflakes, stars, pearls, something fuzzy, and glitter

Then I drew some tiny dots and stars and splattered with gold mist

In Canada with DCWV Christmas Plaids

Happy 2017! I am sorry that I haven't shared any layouts in quite awhile. I hope to have more time for some scrapping soon. I know everyone has lots of holiday photos that need to be scrapped so I am sharing a layout using the gorgeous DCWV Christmas Plaid Stack and the background from one of my fave stacks, the Embossed White Stack. 

here is a closer look at the left side. The cardinals are cut from the paper that has the labels and tags. 

The gold accents in the Christmas Plaid stack are not overwhelming and just exactly what you need for a little something special.

When we were in Epcot, we bought candy in most of the countries to bring home and share with the boys on Christmas Morning so I included the little candy box on my layout.
