Yes I was so inspired by the colors that I did 2 layouts last week! Head over to play with the new case #30!
Adorable little kids! which inspired me to do a layout on my class photo when i was a primary 6 kid.. Those were the carefree days... Ha o ya dont forget about the lovely coordinates!
And the result...
 I used all the colours stated, and for the evidence, i used:
- Distressing (my favorite technique and a must-have in all my layouts)
i distressed the sides with a mixture of vintage photo, pine needles, spun sugar and peeled paint.
- bricks below the white cardstock
- childlike elements like the icecream from the coordinates at the corner
- metal from the brads in the rosettes i made from the papers of the coordinates
- hinge at the side of the frame
- Usage of 4 patterns in the rosettes
For the testimony, I chose:
- to document about one of my childhood story, in which is the class i had much fun with 
unforgettable memories (journaling at the back of the layout)

Hey everyone, been so busy with school work to update the blog .. finally got the time to do the csi layouts after finishing my school projects!
Case #29 consist mostly my favourite colours.. especially the pink shade (strawberry icecream)! yummy as usual! Head over to the site and check it out here ;)
As usual, i just love the coordinates made by them!
And so after seeing the colors for this case, I immediately remembered about a shop i came across in Tanglin Mall called Tatty Marsh, which has loads of vintage stuff, ranging from tea cups to very cute and vintage-y home accessories! So this is what i came up with ...
 Cute stuff, arent they? Heehee :) I used all of the stated colours for this layout ..
And for the evidences, I used:
- stripes on the handmade flowers
- a little rolled paper at the corner
- the woody feeling paper given by the coordinates
- gave the whole layout a weathered look by distressing the edges with my favourite distress ink colour (vintage photo)
- pocket made from the wood paper with the top 10 and bottle sticking out :)
Lastly, for the testimony, I chose:
- to journal on thin strips about the things they sell in their shop that attracted me
