CSI Challenge #12 "Just You"

" Di's layout is stunning! The photo is absolutely precious, and we love the mix of elegance with the touch of whimsy Di added with the balloons, feathers, and curvy branches. The distressing is gorgeous, and it really shows off the punched border at the top. The composition of Di's page is beautiful, and the touches of black are just striking!"....CSI

Thanks CSI For "Featuring" me
 in the Top Five this week...Di  xo.
 I have to stop doing this, I've JUST finished my layout for challenge #12 over at the CSI blog, with just over 1 hour  to the deadline!!!! This is crazy. I have been soooo busy these past few weeks I didn't think I would have time to enter, but last night about 9pm I thought , hey you can do it, & so I have burst a valve to get it done on time. I am at work today too I must add, so all things considered I am happy with myself. I had to join in this week as green is my favourite colour, especially this kind of pallette.
For my "Evidence" I have used three things, 
1. Hot Air Balloons, 2. Flowers & 3. For something Fluffy I used some  black feathers.
For my Testimony I have taken inspiration from the word "Magic" & made up a little quote,
"The Magic Of You".
I have stayed true to the colours. I have used Gesso on my background, distressed all of my edges & done a bit of border punching as well. All these gorgeous flowers I have used are from  "Green Tara" of course. The big aqua one at the centre of my cluster is one of their NEW fabric flowers & I have just been dying to use it.
I have also used lots of "2 Crafty" chipboard including this gorgeous flourish, frame, butterfly & words.
Well thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you like my layout.
Until next time.   Cheers Di  xoxo
