CSI Challenge #14 "Treasured Memories"

Hello blogland friends. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Just finished my layout for challenge #14 over at CSI. As always the criteria was amazing. See below for details.
For my Evidence I have used :
1.  Ruffles.....I have gathered some printed tissue paper which I firstly inked to match the layout.
2.  Animal Accent..... I have punched some butterflies.
3   Wet Medium.....I have used Glimmermist, Gesso, inks & paints.
4.  Sanding.....I have sanded the edges of my photos.
For the Testimony criteria I have :
1.  Journalled..... "Looking Forward"
2.  Used the Inspiration Words in my Journalling..."Innocence & Time". (I have tucked the Journalling Tag in behind the photos as I was running out of room!!)

Now I am really happy with my layout as I have used some things out of my stash that I have been saving up & coveting!! You know how it is, you just keep hanging onto certain items!!! I just adore this fairy & I just needed the right layout to use it on & I think this was it. I've fussy cut it & layered it up over my photo.
This photo was given to me by a friend, thanks Jamie. She had it taken by a local photographer JasArt Photographic Art. This girl takes fabulous photos of babies, I actually scrapped another that the same friend gave me of her daughter  a few weeks back which you may remember. She puts wings & all sorts of other gorgeous things on them. Such beautiful photos.
 As always I have also used lots of yummy Green Tara flowers, including one of the NEW fabric flowers as well as some of their Rosebuds. I have also used some Green Tara lace,  Trim & the big bow is one of their NEW crinkled satin edge organza ribbons. It makes lovely bows.
I have also tucked some very pale link feathers into the bottom of my cluster & some tiny pearl sprays & a sweet little Toadstool as well. Lastly I have finished off with a 2 Crafty chippie word that I have painted & Glimmermisted.
Sorry I have included so many close ups, I guess I just got carried away, but I do loooove this photo & the fairy!!!!
Well thats about all, I do hope you like it. Until next time.
Thanks for stoppin by.   Cheers Di  xoxo
