CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration) Case File #18

I found this cool challenge today at CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration) whilst finalising some details for a special project.  Anyway the challenge is to use the Case File details (below) and some simple instructions to create a layout within a week and a weekend.  You have to use all five colours, at least two pieces of evidence and at least one testimony item.

I have used all five colours (the light grey is the silver bling, silver letters and the lightest grey journaling pen I could find) in the scheme.  From the Evidence list I have used Websters Pages Bloomers, flowers, an oversized flower (well for me anyway) and bling.  The Testimony I included was to journal about the growth of Quentin’s love for his Grandma, to include a bit more journaling than I may have ordinarily on this page, and to use the inspiration words of extreme and growth (actually growing) in my journaling.

This is my layout:


The journaling reads:  “Quentin calls his Grandma, Mar Heidke.  He loves her so very much, and that love is always growing stronger as time goes by.  It may sound extreme for a 38 year old man to love his Grandma so much, but thats LOVE.”
