CSI Challenge 97 - Remember

I'd programmed this to upload on a certain day and just realized it didn't happen...whoops....I need remedial lessons on blogger.  Better late than never!

Thanks for the great the inspsiration mood board Debi and the sketch Em.
   I loved the challenge this week.

I used two very old papers as the base, Wild Asparagus is the green and the blue is by Basic Grey.
The strips are all Kaisercraft, as is the wooden title.
The stencil is Crafter's workshop - Mini Diamonds

Dry Embossing (on the silver sprocket)
Diamond shapes
Transparent accents (film strip)
Something reflective

I went to Cheddar X and chose to write about a habit of one of our DGS's


Here you are trying to avoid your afternoon sleep,
by snuggling up to Pa.  At two & a bit you are mostly
biddable and sweet natured. However, once you have
made a decision you are not going to do something,
nothing will change your mind.  All the coaxing, and
cajoling makes not a scrap of difference. It’s like trying
to move a Rhinoceros with a feather. Luckily, we have 
learned not to insist on things happening when we want
them to and in the fullness of time, you sometimes saunter
off and do whatever is was we asked.  Love Granny,  April 2013

  1. So cute!! Love the look of this & that stencil!! For prescheduling you need to put in the date and the time you want it to go live then actually hit the publish button. Scary I know - but it won't actually publish until that day!!

  2. I absolutely love your take on Em's sketch for this layout and that little boy is just too cute for words... I love little face... I can just imagine the cogs turning - trying to get his own way :D I love the punched border at the top it is so effective and the stencilling is so light and pretty and I think you are genius that you get your typing in exactly the right place... HOW do you do that. I have binned so many papers because I can't get it right. Another stunning layout Helen. xox
