holiday festivities 22

Mona Pendleton | Friday, December 6, 2013 @ 4:05 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I have some exciting crafty news to share! Debbi Tehrani, (Owner) of the Color Stories Inspiration site has invited me to join along as a Guest Detective this month! In case you are not familiar, CSI is a weekly scrapbook challenge site that encourages one to try new colors schemes and to tell your stories.

Here is this week's story:
I created a holiday layout featuring a photo of my sweet dog Griffin.
I added a few flower embellishments from my stash and some die cut foliage that was made using a few Spellbinders dies:
I adhered a few metal frames that I pulled out from my stash that were probably about 10 years old or so. To add a little more shine, I rubbed on Silver buff and for a dangling accent, I tied a few jingle bells to one:
To incorporate circles and for added design, I stenciled on circles using the Graduated Dots stencil:
Here is how I incorporated the different elements from the story:


Color:
Used all of them
Evidence:
Frames, Silver Accents, Something Dangling, Something Shiny, Circles
Testimony:
Journal about the holidays. Inspiration words: Family and Peace

Thanks so much for visiting! For some amazing inspiration, please visit the CSI site and see what all the other designers created. I hope you join along in the fun!
Be Sweet ;)
