Sisters - CSI Case File #45

Hi Everyone

I hope that you are having a super weekend and that you are at least finding a little time to scrap and be creative.

I had some fun this morning, creating another layout for CSI. This challenge was such a great one and I loved the colours.

I had this really sweet photo of my sister and I, and I have been wanting to scrap it for quite a while now, and this was the perfect opportunity.

Here was my creation.

I used Echo Park papers, Dots and stripes and This and That, with Crate Paper Toy Box stickers. The stamps used were Chiswick, with a Design Worx chippie, Pink Paislee alphas and Prima flowers.
I did some pencil shadings on the background, but with the lighting, it does not show up so much.

The journalling says this:
Once upon a time, there were 2 sisters. They loved to play "housey house" with their dolls and teddies and tell stories of faraway lands and adventures! They had an entire enchanted garden to playn in, with fearsome trees to climb and conquer and rescue helpless and injured animals! Life was a playground, full of excitement and woven tales!

Here are some close-ups.

This layout certainly brought back some memories.

Thanks for visiting today!
Hope you have a restful and happy Sunday!
