I am pleased to announce that I was invited to be a Guest Special Investigator for CSI this month of April!
This is my page for CSI #66
I used all five required colors.
Evidence: buttons, arrows, something fuzzy (flocked paper), ribbon, hearts (large metal heart), holes - washers.
Testimony: A layout about my parents on their honeymoon in Williamsburg, Virginia in 1947.
I have handwritten the journaling as a postcard. This is on the back of the actual postcard seen on the left side of the layout. The postcard can be slipped out by pulling the attached string, (which is not visible in this photo). The prompt was to write something funny about the subject, and I chose to write, as I imagined my Mom would write, on the back of the card. We were asked to use some of the inspiration words, and I chose to use the word - point.
The journal as a postcard reads: "Hello Everyone! Well, here we are, and wouldn't you know it, married life is not what it's cracked up to be!!! Case in point: we got hitched and look what happened, we were immediately thrown into the stocks!!! Marriage has made us laughingstocks, bound and jailed for the rest of our days. Why didn't anyone tell us this???!!! Sue & Ernie
P.S. Just kidding, we're having a great time!!!"
I used a lot of personal items belonging to my parents on this page.
The photo is actually 2 separate photos which I pieced together to make one photo. The large tarnished heart (bottom left) is a bookmark that belonged to my Mom. Also the silver button above the postcard, and the tiny red crystal buttons belonged to her. The postcard is actually an old postcard from her collection of postcards. The Joker card belonged to my Dad, as did all of the many washers on this layout. The key and lock surround were part of his collection of old hardware, and the watch face is set into an old watch back of his.
Thank you to all who look at this page, I appreciate it so very much!!!
