A Beautiful Case @ CSI

Hello all :)

I've been a little slack blogging of late but do plan to organize myself a little better over the coming weeks as I really need to! 

Life is starting to slow down a little after the craziness of last month.

This weeks case over at
is a truly gorgeous one and along with the awesome sketch for inspiration from
Emma Stafrace
I tell you case#110 will be a breeze for you to crack!!!

Here is how I solved it!


 Colour Scheme- All colours....I really loved this colour scheme, it's right up my alley, so to speak!
Evidence- Flowers (Prima), a single feather I found in my front yard, pearl stick on thingy's
Testimony- Written on back of layout. Sidney you looked so stylish and fancy for your Year 6 Farewell Dinner. Very Stunning, in fact!! 
Your dress, shoes, hair and make-up came together perfectly with a little help from Samantha!

The flourish
and the word Cherish
are from 
the Doily's, kaisercraft stamp, flowers, twine and wooden button and wooden word 'DARLING' are from

Yesterday 14th February (Valentine's Day)
Roy and I celebrated 22 years of marriage....WoW!!! 
22 years and we have almost been together for a total of 26 years

 and now!!!!

Photo: 22 years of marriage today! #happyvalentinesday#loveforever 

We went out for a lovely lunch together.
xxxx love you honey!

So my plan is to blog a little more over the coming weeks, hope I can do it!

Hope you have a little scrappy time this weekend

Love and scrappy hugs
