"That Smile" Time for a new Case file at CSI Color Stories Inspiration!

Hi again. Time for a new CSI casefile and a big load of  inspiration!
The colours this week are very classic and not really colours that I use very often but still I am quite happy with the outcome. I should use them more often!

First I will share the layout as it appears in the reveal, only because I really like the way it looks placed within that cool frame. I just love that masking tape and the arrows.

Here you get the gist of the challenge for this week and if you go to the CSI blog you can read all about the names/codes of colours etc at the bottom of the reveal (after all the guest and DT inspiration). 
There are some very beautiful examples that you might want to check out!

My papers are a mix from all different manufactureres; Pink Paislee, Glitz, Les Papiers de Pandore, October Afternoon and also from page 2 of the awesome printables on offer as a freebie at CSI
Really cool stuff!

Luckily I had the 'perfect' photos for this case. 
Beatrice is very much used to me running wild with my Nikon and taking photos all the time. This leads to that particular smile that says I'll smile if you go away....

On this day we had been to the sales and of course Beatrice had biiig bags to carry home! 
We were staying with my sister in Norway and she also loves too take a lot of photos. 
My journalling says that Beatrice was much happier to be photographed by her aunt because it was something new and different. She/we had a lot of fun!
For my 'evidence' I used; Wood(buttons), liquid medium (paint,distress stickles), cloud, glitter and 
of course triangles in my banners.
My 'testimony' is using journalling strips (and I added them by threes).

A little closer view of some of my layered elements that I even have sewn around.

I am not quite sure but I think that large velvet bloom is made by Petaloo. I don't have the packaging any longer. It is a real beauty though!

This is my little cloud I cut out for evidence. I gave it a coat of gesso with my finger and I added a small amount of glitter to it,too.

These are my triangles and my wooden buttons.

Thanks for taking a peek at my latest page. I am off to work on next weeks colours!
Enjoy your week end!!
