You Have My Heart

I actually got to sit down today and work on a page...and actually get it finished all in the same day!  I incorporated 3 challenges into this layout (which I haven't done in a while).  I used the sketch for the My Mind's Eye Blog Challenge 32 and also Case File #6, at CSI.  The last challenge I used for this one, is the Jan./Feb. Issue Challenge #8 at Club CK, which was actually posted today.  The challenge was to use one of the techniques from the 25 Ways to Use Stickers on Your Layouts article.  I chose technique #3, which was to ink the edges of your sticker and create a dome effect using dimensional glaze.  I used diamond glaze over the MME banner/date stickers.


For the Evidence portion of the CSI challenge, I chose to use 2 patterns with the same color and wood accents.  My journaling was written from the aspect of the inspiration word, "comfort".  For the MME sketch, I rotated it to fit the portrait aspect of my photos.

I hope you find a little bit of inspiration from my page or maybe from one or more of the challenges mentioned here.  Make sure you stop back by on Friday to see my layout for the upcoming Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs.
