Bold and bright colours for the challenge at CSI this week. Luckily I had these photos of our DGD to scrap, in her little ladybird outfit on her birthday.
I used a # 3 sketch from Scrap Friends which you can find HERE They have really great sketches.
If you'd like to play along you have until
As usual, I used a mixture of old stash, such as the Sassafras lass alphas and a sprinkling of new, like the simply lovely frame by My Mind's Eye. The music acetate is by Kaisercraft and the Ladybird at the bottom is actually a zipper pull by Birch.
The stars are made through a Tim Holtz stencil
Here's how I solved the case.
Paint (on the stickers)
You had a magical time at your second birthday party. It had a Charlie and Lola theme and lots of the people wore costumes. You were dressed as a Ladybird and looked very cute with a big red flower on your top and black spots on your tulle skirt. With your black tights and boots on, your were ready to boogie. The Ladybird persona suited you very well, because you like to flit from one thing to another, eager to be among the action.
I’m not sure how much of your birthday you will remember, but you certainly enjoyed the activities, especially planting the seeds at the potting bench. Unlike your Grandparents, you are an extovert and we were delighted to see you enjoying being the centre of attention. However, when the candles were lit and Happy Birthday was sung, you had a rare moment of being bashful, hiding your face in your hands, before popping out again with a beaming smile.
