Play mom & baby --- CSI case # 221 / January Stash Challenge

Hello all,
I can't believe it took me three weeks to finish my layout for CSI case # 221, and for the January Stash Challenge at 2 Peas.  I kept changing papers, couldn't quite place the flowers, and I didn't really know what to say in the journaling. If that wasn't bad enough, I had to replace a large piece of turquoise paper after everything was glued down because I dropped a big glob of brown paint on it trying to add a few splatters. I almost threw the whole thing out ! Thankfully I found another piece of turquoise patterned  paper in my stash. Turns out it's nicer than the one I had originally chosen. Go figure ☺.

Here's the CSI challenge:

The colours: pale yellow/ivory, turquoise, watermelon pink, yellow green, dark chocolate brown are all there.

From the Evidence list I have: tiny dots, grid pattern, string, different coloured letter (word) stickers, and leaves.

From the Testimony I chose to mix my handwriting with some letter stickers (on the hidden journaling card).

I also followed the sketch fairly closely.

For the January Stash Challenge at 2 Peas I chose three items from the list;
 * Something floral : the background frame border, and the washi tape.
* An unloved tool : my corner rounder, and 2 different Stampin'Up flower stamps. I haven't used those particular tools in quite a while. A shame really because I love the extra touch they give to my page.
* Your handwriting : on the hidden journaling card.

The photos of my grand-daughters were taken by their mom. I journaled about Rosalie's dream of being a mother and how much she takes good care of all of her "babies" which include her little sister, Coraline.

Thank you for stopping by and for any comment you may care to leave.

Have a great week,
Jacynthe ☺
