I am hooked on the challenges over at CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration), even after completing just two of them. They are a real challenge with colour, design and journaling requirements.
I chose this picture because it reminded me of how being close to my children makes me happy and balanced. Although I am really glad that I have lost some weight since this photograph was taken. It may only be four kilograms but it made a huge difference to my appearance.
This is CSI File #19:
‘The Evidence’ that I used:
Multiple small patterns
Circle in the design – circular flowers, a patterned paper with circles on it, border punch with a circular design
