Remember - CSI Case File no. 96

Hello Everyone

I am so pleased that I have found some time this week, to play along again with the CSI challenges.  They really are so super and have been the starting point for many a great page.

Here's this weeks Case File.

Here's my take on it.

Evidence: Typewriter font, metal accents, flowers and clocks
Testimony: Using "Remember"
My journalling is on the back of my layout and is in typewriter font.
It says this:
This was your very first Christmas with us! You were just 5 months old and we were so excited to have a baby in the house at Christmas time. You were just content to sit on my lap and watch the Christmas lights flashing on the tree. For me, this was the realisation that you were the greatest gist of all and such a blessing! - Dec 2007

It's amazing how some moments are just are so clear in one's mind and this is one of them! I really wanted to document this moment in time!

This little outfit that Joe is wearing, was also a gift from my brother Mark and I remember how cute and sweet Joe looked in it!

This is certainly a little moment locked into memory and is also documented here too for safekeeping!

I have really been diving into my stash and this is no exception! I used the For the Record 2 Collection from Echo Park, that has never even been opened until now. I am so pleased as it fitted perfectly with the colours I needed.

I used my Chiswick clock stamps for the background. I am so chuffed with how it turned out. I then used some MME enamel dots for the centres. The flowers used are Prima and Petaloo, and the washi tape is also MME.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super evening!
