As soon as I saw the colours for this week's CSI Challenge I knew the photograph I wanted to scrap! The colours just cried out vintage and a sepia photo.
The little girl in the photograph is my mother-in-law, Mollie, and this is a rare family photograph, as her father spent many months at sea away from the family home. The sea was in their blood as my mother-in-law was a Wren in the Royal Navy and her older brother was a steward on large liners. Sadly the little boy in the sailor suit died at a young age during a routine operation.
In addition to using the colours of the scheme I have also used:
- silver metal
- vintage text
- textured paper
- and the word HOME.
I am really enjoying making these paper flowers using Donna Salazar's Spellbinders die Bitty Blossoms.
They are becoming quite addictive!
There are some jaw droppingly wonderful layouts by the CSI Design Team - all amazingly different! Click the link HERE to have a look.
Thanks for looking and have a lovely weekend!
