Memo Monday & sneaking in for a ...

...challenge. Yup. I sorta decided that maybe I could just join
in with ONE a month? And I used to always join with CSI.
I think this one 'called' me as it is open for a whole month.
Suits me, with my slower blogging posting thingy happening atm.
So, here's the CASE FILE FOR #221:
Colours - ✓  Evidence = triangles, letter stickers, enamel dots
& puffy stickers; Testimony is the mix of stickers and handwriting.
Apart from the obvious green, blue and brown, there are touches of
the pink & ivory in the layers behind the photos:
I'm trying to do more multi photo LOs. Have you noticed?
I seem to have a never ending pile of snaps to this is an effort
to get through them a bit quicker.
And it worked well with Em's sketch!
Nothing much else to say ;)
Below is one of the locator word stickers I got on sale with a Project Life kit from K-Mart
here in Australia.
Some of the alphas are from it too.
Some are Felicity Jane & Thickers, as well:)

Meanwhile over at Sian's FROM HIGH IN THE SKY blog
I'm joining in with MEMO MONDAY.
This was a good week for me, as I received some HAPPY MAIL.
Now, this is a broad term to encompass things like Pocket Letters,
Flip Albums and the latest trend LOADED POCKETS.
I'd never received one before. This is from Tanya Leigh,
a lovely NZ scrapper.
She actually SEWED the pocket from MATERIAL.
That floored me!
I got it as part of an 'after Christmas' swap, where we could
send whatever type of Happy Mail we wanted, as long as it
was Christmas themed. Brilliant!
Those little tabs above? She DESIGNS them!
You can see why I was soooo happy eh?
Mail like that can come any day.
And today I'm making up some 'HM' to send out.
Nothing 1/2 as fancy as this, but still, I'm enjoying making it!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my post & here's to some
Happy Scrapping at yours!
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
