Naturally Beautiful - CSI

CSI case #84 ends tonight, and I managed to complete this layout on Friday, so it's time I shared it! It's all about vacations and travel this month so this week I went for more memories of our trips to Norfolk when the children were younger (2001 this time). I have featured pictures of my father and my daughter, Catherine on a visit to Holt Wild Flower Centre.

Here are the details of the challenge, showing the Scheme, Evidence and Testimony.
 There is also a sketch.
To solve the case I used all the colours in the Scheme: my papers were a very mixed bag - Little Yellow Bicycle - Paradise -Earthy Dots; My Mind's Eye - On the Bright Side - Stripe (leafy green side); Basic Grey - Oliver - Sticker sheet, Mason (Navy) & Greyson; Crate Paper - Portrait - sticker sheet.

Evidence: Paper with stripes, fabric, twine, circles (buttons).
Testimony: A story of a get away together - the words 'escape' and 'explore' are included in the journalling, some of which can be seen on the layout the rest is hidden under the pictures and on the reverse of the tags.

I also used lots of sticker strips from the Basic Grey and the Crate Paper collections, Kaisecraft Grid stamp, several colours of Glimmer mist, Prima Resistant Canvas shapes.
I added a little back pack charm to reflect Catherine's bag in the photo.

 The Prima Resist Canvas Shapes were spritzed with the Glimmer Mists and then some Stickles glitter glue was added to highlight, they were then added with layers of 3D foam to give dimension.

The fabric strip is left over linen from an old cross stitch project with the edges frayed. The smaller butterflies were created from left over papers and a 3 in 1 Martha Stewart punch. The title is Basic Grey letter stickers for 'Naturally' and 'Beautiful' was cut on the Cricut with the Theresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge.

Happy Memories of a beautiful day!
Thanks for looking.
