CSI-80- Scraps of Elegance- Gina's Designs


Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing my take on CSI-80.

I created my page with a variety of elements from former Scraps of Elegance kits. This one includes mostly Websters Papers.
I used banners, triangles, flowers and patterns for my evidence.


Around the outside edges of my page I used a distress marker to draw some overlapping lines to frame the page.

My background treatment includes misting and gelatos painted over a mask for a watercolor effect. After they dried I outlined the shapes with a distress marker.

The beautiful word phrase is from Gina's Designs. I just inked this one with Walnut Distress Ink. I also used lots of stamping in the background and for my flowers. 
These flowers are a Heartfelt Creations stamp I cut out and then colored with Gelatos.

My testimony is a journal to my daughter:



You are easy to love…

At 7… painted pink toes and sweet strawberry scented hair…
You walk in a skip and giggle on a whim…
Your hazel eyes melt my heart and your butterfly kisses melt my soul…
At 7…you still hold my hand, kiss my cheeks, call me mommy, snuggle on my lap and think I put the moon in the sky every night just for you…
Braids, sidewalk chalk, jumping waves, riding bikes, swinging high and vanilla ice cream with brownie bits are it takes to make you happy…
At 7 you are easy to love…


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I appreciate each and every visit. :)

One of my favourite layouts in the gallery. I just love the layout but it is the journalling that really got me. Love it. Thanks for sharing. Love the photo of the outdoor bed. How cool is that.

Lisa this is so pretty. I really love your background. What a fabulous idea to outline the gelatos with the distress marker. Would love to try that.
Bear Hugs,
