Hey You!

Today I have been having lots of fun with Case File #64 over at CSI. Most scrappers are probably the same as me - we don't scrap about ourselves that much - but this one really got me thinking about my relationship with myself. Here's the Case File (click on the image to enlarge so you can read it!)
Wow! Debbi did it again didn't she? CSI stands for Colour, Stories, Inspiration and this definitely has all three covered. The Scene is an inspirational image from which Debbi pulls the Scheme, the Evidence and the Testimony.  There is also a set of CSI Coordinates designed by Michele Singh to help CSI members solve the case - these are printable pp, journaling spots and images and they're brilliant!
To solve the Case, you must use

  • All 5 colours in the Scheme
  • At least 2 items of Evidence
  • At least 1 piece of Testimony

Here's my solution, with a school photo of me at about seven years old.

The Scheme: used all 5 colours (although the photo doesn't show the true colours)
The Evidence: bird; rub ons; words as embellishments; jewels; circles; leaves; pen work.
The Testimony: from the scene "love who you are"; what you love about you ; IW "you".

Over the years I have given a lot of thought to what I would like to be able to go back and tell my seven-year old self if only I could. There was a lot going on in this little head already and there is so much I would like to tell her, but if I had to fit it onto a small tag, this is what it would say:

"You're allowed to say 'No'
You deserved to be loved
You will be happy
Believe it x."

This little girl didn't love anything about herself - this is me finally giving her a hug.
Annie :o) x
