I'm a Princess - Lil Laura

Another fun challenge at CSI this week!  I wait until the case goes up and then peruse my photos and pick out something to scrap.  I decided to go retro this time and scrap a couple of childhood photos of me.  I had a couple of fun retro lines of paper from October Afternoon and Crate Paper that I thought went well with these era photos.

For my evidence, I did major distressing, made use of metals and mixed straight lines with organic shapes.  For my testimony, I wrote the roots of the matter.

I was pretty excited about my metal piece, the sub-title!  I just got a set of metal stamps.  I have had these metal tags forever and really didn't know what to do with them.  I hammered my sub-title right on with my new stamps and then worked some black ink into the crevices.  I like how it turned out and feel I will be using them a lot!

The layout
