Hard at Play - CSI DT challenge 120

Take a look at the whimsical case file this week- Isn't it cute?
I hope you will be inspired to play along.
To have a look at the creativity of the Design Team
 A few close ups.
The floral paper is by Simple Stories, Elements, "Fresh Air"
An old flair from my stash - October Afternoon "Sidewalk"
I used Gesso and a roller stamp "Wild & Free"
Some builders tape
A splash of Dylusions "Fresh Lime"
I chose to write a Haiku about a day in the life of DGD.  She’s a hundred mile an hour kind of girl.  Restless, always busy, darting about like a rainbow lorikeet, never settling anywhere for long.  I found the limitations of the haiku difficult, but it made me focus on each word.

Textured paper - dry embossing on the blue
Mixed media background
Animal accents - on the flair
Wet medium

Restless legs skip by
Throw sand, chase the dog and cat
Now quiet and still



  1. Awww..this is super cute & the Haiku was just too much THINKING for me!!! I really love the pretties on this page.....I did mine today. LOOOVED the colours!!!

  2. This is just precious - love that pp and never thought of putting gesso on a roller - will have to tray that! Gorgeous page. When I first saw this in the DT forum I thought that little heart held an easter basket of things - now I can see it!

  8. awwww another casefile nailed. The haiku is so clever and I think it suits her to perfection. I love the CAS style of this page too, the gesso looks wonderful on kraft and I love the typed haiku and flowers in the bottom corner. Another stunning layout made with so much love for these grandies of yours.
