DUSTY ATTIC joins with CSI #160

Hey there! Sooo excited to be Guest Designing for this month over at CSI #160.
Dusty Attic is the main sponsor this month. So of course, I've incorporated some of their lovely chippy onto my page.
Here's the FABULOUS case file:
And a really interesting sketch from Em Stafrace!
I've used all the colours. Some are little touches like this sage green in the pearl heart
And the dark seaweed with the Glimmer Glaze splots:
 This one has a BIG story. You'll notice I've 'adapted' the sketch to fit the amount of journaling!
 Here's Tim with his US girl, Sal. Behind the photo & chippy is a sort of tree trunk pattern.
That's a rub on from Studio Calico. Tick one for the Evidence:
 As you can see, instead of a large photo [I don't have a printer that would do that], I've used pp and washi in the different shades of blue/green from the case file:
 Stamping is also in the evidence. I used a Kellie stamp set to do a repeat stamped title.
And the chippy has been heat embossed:
Finally, another bit of EVIDENCE is metal. So I've also heat embossed this as well.
The little tie is another touch of the deep seaweed colour. Here's a closie:
The Dusty Attic chippy I've used is below:

I do hope you get a chance to join in with this lovely case file! 
I hope your Easter holidays have been a nice, relaxing break......
Take care ~ blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥


  1. Such amazing little details, as usual Lizzy - and with this one you've outdone yourself !! such a beautiful postcard photo and such and interesting LO. I've never done a CSI challenge as I'm unsure how it works - do you have to put all that evidence in the LO? and do you have to use all those colours? what about the sketch? Thanks for inspiring me , again, by sharing your talented creativity <3

  2. What a gorgeous page! Love all the texture and elements you used; the colors are fab!

  3. THIS is a most fabulous page! My aunt (the bestest one I have) is in San Fran and I love to visit her! Fabulous place and awesome sauce page! Super cool chippy treatment!

  7. Wow ! I loved how you have built the page around photo and following the Sketch !

  8. HI.. Love your blog header.. love the blingy hearts!! I think you did an amazing creation for this CSI! all your journalling tells the story.. they look a lovely couple.. sounds like they are adventurous too! love your take on the sketch.. I didnt have a big photo either so just did paper and stamping.. My layout was the first one I have ever done.. they are really good challenges.. I guess I just dont think of them.. I will try and do some more in the future.. and N's ankle has turned all sorts of colors with the bruising coming out.. still swollen and sore.. did a good job on it I reckon.. hope it is healed by the time she has to go back to school in 2 weeks!! have a fabulous day!
