When You Wish Upon A Star

Case File#95 over at CSI this week was perfect for a vintage picture of my sister and me playing horses on a wintery day out many years ago ...

Here's the Case File (click on the image to enlarge it so you can see all the Clues)

CSI Mastermind Debbi Tehrani has found another inspiring Scene for us to investigate this week. From this image, Debbi takes five colours for the Scheme, as well as ideas for design elements and journaling prompts.The idea is to solve the Case by following all of these Clues to make a scrapbook page -
  • All 5 colours in the Scheme
  • At least 2 items of Evidence
  • At least 1 piece of Testimony
Here is how I solved the Case (again you can click on the image to enlarge it) ...

The design was scraplifted from a beautiful layout by one of my scrapping heroines Heather Jacob for Scrap365 -- thanks Heather, hope you don't mind! :o)
  • The Scheme: all the colours are there
  • The Evidence: paint; distressing; wood; tie something; metal; tearing.
  • The Testimony: I've used the IW "reminisce" an documented an old story, which I've handwritten around the edge of the page. It reads as follows:
" Playing horses on a fallen tree. When I was little I believed my friend when she told me that if you broke a ginger nut clean into three pieces your wish would come true ... I wished for six white horses and when they didn't arrive, my friend told me that they had gone to live with her Aunty by the sea until I was a grown up lady and could go and claim them - I totally believed her!" 

Here are some close-ups so you can check out my evidence ...

 ... metal, wood and something tied ...
 ... distressing, paint, something else tied ...
...more tearing and distressing.

See? it's easy-peasy - why not give it a go yourself?! You have until Sunday week to upload your page - check out the CSI Gallery for loads of inspiration and ideas :o)xxx
