Hi everyone! This month we have a special case file at CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration in cooperation with Scrap365 magazine. Scrap365 is a fabulous scrapbooking magazine, if you have never looked at it, I hope you will do so. There is so much inspiration, lots of technique articles and it features scrappers from all over the world. I am glad to be one of the CSI team members to be published in this Scrap365 issue (October/November, issue 18), with the layout in this post.
This special case file is open during the whole of October and the people who are picked as the five top layouts will be invited to be guest designers at CSI in December.
There is a book theme at CSI this month, and that is always a favourite of mine. I am very glad that my son loves books too and we spend a lot of time reading his books. This layout is about that. From the evidence items I used: circles, bird, book pages, crown, stencils, and hearts. From the testimony items: my layout is about books and reading and I also made a little book to hold my journaling and more photos.
Thank you so much for looking! I hope you will join us this month in our special case file.
