20 - Happy Trail

Oh, how I love this Case File! And oh, how I love Michele's printables!

Clues I used: Evidence: dots, mushrooms, bugs, stitching, kraft background, staggered heights, white space (believe it or not, I was going to add more stuff but decided to leave a little breathing room), and felt letters; Testimony: Inspiration Words: slow, trail.

I used the current Creative Scrappers sketch. Here are some closeups. I have details about products and the full story behind why I scrapped these pics on my blog, if you're interested in that type of thing: http://debbitscraps.blogspot.com/2012/05/happy-trail-csi-case-file-no-20.html

Thank you so much for looking at my page! :)

This is adorable. I love how you used twine to create the bees trail!

This page is so wonderful Debbi! Love that you document your drive to work and the photos are great. Fabulous details, the circles, the mushrooms and twine. Love it!

This vibrant page packs such a punch in the gallery. Reading your story made me smile too. Love the little brads outlined and like Shaunery, I'm amazed that you get all this on on 8x8 page :)

Love that sketch and the great use of all the colors!  Those little bugs are so cute!

Very clever idea for a page, and very clever using Christmas paper for a not really Christmas LO. Although if I lived on the East Coast, I would love to have one of those trees for Christmas.

Sooo loved reading about your commute and the background to these photos. Your page is utterly adorable and whimsical with the little critters and bees - love the trail of twine - Michele's coordinates are perfect! Love love love it! xox

Okay I'm still amazed that you cram all of this onto 8x8 pages and STILL created "white space"   HOW Wha? Doh??  Awesome as usual and LOVE the pop and vibrancy of this layout!  Great cutie patootie coordinates... that woman who makes them.. genius!  ;)

Debbi!  I just love this layout!  It is a great design and how you used the coordinates is just wonderful!

Fabulous Debbi!  I adore those little bees scattered about and the trail of twine (great idea).  There are so many wonderful, rich layers that add so much interest.  Just fab work.
