CSI Casefile #252

Hi peeps!
It´s time for the mid-month challenge over at CSI and the casefile looks like this:

As usual you can either freelance the challenge OR follow the clues given on the site. I chose to freelance (again) and came up with this layout:

This is how I solved the case:
When I saw the photos and the prompt about home it got me thinking about what makes a home. To me it´s all about family so I decided to make my page about that AND using the fab color scheme for this challenge.

To make my page I used this fab collection  and frames by On A Whimsical Adventure:

So RUN over to CSI and get creative with this gorgeous file! Just click HERE!
Hugs, Carina

Layout for April Kraft+ Challenge

I just love creating with kraft paper so the Kraft+ Challenge is just up my alley! This month the recipe looks like this:

This was a bit tricky but here's my layout:

Here is how I interpreted the recipe:
  • Old: I used an old collection by Simple Pleasure Designs (The Little Things)
  • New: I took the photo of me today
  • Something borrowed: I used a template that I borrowed from my friend who used to design under the name The Nifty Pixel
  • Something blue: Well, lots of blues going on here so I think I got that one covered!
Here are the collections I used for my layout:

I am also a sucker for Mommyish actions and I used two different for this layout:


The template I used is made by The Nifty Pixel - Christmas Cheer V.2, but it´s no longer available.

All the stuff is linked so you will find them easily and If you also wanna do the Kraft+ challenge just click HERE.

Thanks for popping by - and don´t be shy! 😉
Hugs, Carina

Join me!

Being a bit late here but since it is a new month it means that I am doing a new Art Journaling challenge over at The Digichick! This time I wanna challenge you to make a layout about your favorite TV-show! I made mine about "Supernatural":

I really, really love this show, but right now I cannot watch any episodes here in Sweden due to the fact that the company that showed them has not renewed their rights - boohoo! I hope that will be fixed SOON! I am starting Season 10 the next - so no spoilers please!

To make my layout I used this gorgeous kit and overlays by Manu Designs:

Now I am sure that you all are super excited to join me so just click on the pic below to get straight to the challenge over at The Digichick - see you around!/Carina
