How Sweet

I was quite inspired by this CSI Case File, I had ideas swimming through my head instantly.
Coupled with a fabulous sketch from over at Chookscraps the layout pretty much put itself together!!

I have rotated and centered the sketch, cos thats the kinda gal I am
 I like things straight and linear
and I'm learning to accept this!!!!
Have used some old EP Be Mine paper scraps as it was
just the perfect match for the CSI colour combo.

As you can see from the photo my darling daughter is now
waaaaaaaay taller than me and darling son isnt far off. Seems I'll be the
shorty in the family all too soon!
However after adding the finishing touches to the layout I thought it needed a pop of colour.
So I coloured some Collections butterflies with Copic markers
to add a little extra colour to the page.

More Pan Pastel play

Have been playing around over the last few days with some texture paste and Pan Pastel as I wanted to incorporate these two mediums on my next layout. Thought I shoud experiment first before stressing as I go direct to the layout!! Really love how this tag has turned out and now the fun of putting a layout together can start.
