A Trim

The colors at CSI are some of my favorites!  I love green and blue and this week we had various shades of both paired with brown.  This speaks nature to me.  I did a layout about giving our favorite tree a much needed trim.  We got dirty and we got wet (it started raining halfway through), but we got it done.

For my evidence I used foliage, wood, clouds, and a boarder.  The leaves came from a Cricut cartridge and I just love them!  The shape is just fun.  I cut them out of the two shades of green and in various sizes and let them explode from the photos in the center.  I love the wood embossing folder by Tim Holtz.  It's one of my very favorite folders.  Applying darker distress ink over the raised parts just gives it a very dimensional feel.

For my journaling I talked about my home, the tree and how it is part of my home.

  1. I love everything about this page, Laura!! Great job using the colors and the scattered leaves are very awesome! And I especially love the way you arranged your photos into a photo strip!

  2. Wow Laura, you are really rockin' these cases from CSI! Love the diecut leaves and spray ink :)

  3. Haven't been here much and I apologize. Just want to let you know that this page really jumped out at me. Love the rhinestones on the leaves. Awesome colors -- miss you all!

  4. A gorgeous the two different shade of green for the leaves, the misting and the embossed neat!

  5. I think this is one of my favorites you've posted recently! Love the colors, filmstrip, and the tumbling leaves are so cool. But what I really noticed is how it all is grounded with a simple border strip. You knocked this challenge out of the park!
