18 - Bloom

This wonderful lady is the staff development teacher at our school, and she's retiring. I was asked to make a cover page for a scrapbook one of the teachers is making, and I thought this was the perfect Case File since her name is Sandy Flower! We are all writing messages to Sandy on separate cards that will go in the scrapbook. I've left my message at school, but it's about how with her patience and unconditional love and caring, she's helped students and teachers grow and bloom. I'm going to miss this wonderful teacher!

Evidence: oversized flower, bling
Testimony: Inspiration words: bloom, growth.

Here are some close-ups.Details about products are on my blog if you're interested: http://debbitscraps.blogspot.com/2012/05/bloom-csi-case-file-no-18.html

My pages are 8 x 8. I used a Creative Scrappers sketch for my layout.

Thank you so much for looking at my page.

What a fantastic gift you are giving Debbi! It's breathtaking, I am sure everyone at school would like for you to do a page for them! Fantastic type details, and all that layering, so neat. You really are a pro!

Mrs Flower is surely going to adore her gift, especially with such a beautiful cover! she looks like the genuine thing with a smile that lights up her whole face. Beautiful take on the sketch and as always, just wonderful little details. Especially like the little "garden sign" with the stick pin and the pretty banners. xoxo
