We 3 are Family

Hi everyone!

I love this picture of my brother Ivan, my sister Mandy and me on my wedding day in the summer of 2011 and I thought it would be the perfect fit for Case File #111 over at CSI this week.

Here's the Case File, put together by CSI Mastermind Debbi Tehrani - full of delicous summery sorbet shades and icecream inspirations ...


To solve the Case, all you have to do is follow these clues to create a scrapbook page ...

  • Use all five colours in the Scheme
  • Include at least two items from the Evidence list as elements in your design
  • Take at least one item from the Testimony list to inspire your journaling

Here's how I cracked the case ...


I started with one of Emma Stafrace's amazing sketches over at Page Drafts ...


This sketch is part of the "Love is Everywhere" 2014 Valentines Release - lots of lovely sketches, inspiration and prizes wooHOO!!!

So, did I follow all the clues?



  • The Scheme: all the colours are there
  • The Evidence: polka dots, wood, stickers, border punch, sprinkles, three of something
  • The Testimony: I was initially inspired by the childhood memory, then kind of got carried away and forgot about it, then ended up sprinkling my journaling about the page - phew! 

I don't often get to see my brother and sister these days, but we have been through a lot together and I miss them so much. It was a huge effort for them to be here for our wedding and it meant the world to me to have them with me on the day. If you click on the image to enlarge it, you should be able to read the journaling more easily.

Here are some close-ups so you can check for clues ...



Polka dot button ... border punch ... chipboard stickers ...


... wood veneer camera ... woodgrain alphas ... tiny letter stickers ... sprinkles of sugar dot hearts, buttons and sequins ... word sticker ... more polka dots ...


... the three of us ... the photo cut into three ... the number 3.

Pop over to CSI for lots of ideas and inspiration - it'll have you looking at your scrapping stash in a whole new way ... :o)

Oh wow how special Annie... I only just got mine done in time then I saw it was midnight Aussie time so I am not sure I got it in on time. Had too much yummy time of late and got so far behind in my scrapping :( nevermind.
I love what you did with this sketch and the colours and papers are just wonderful I am so glad that they made it for your wedding ... so special.

I didn't find your layout on CSI Annie. It's lovely. I like the way you cut the photo in three parts.
