TCR # 125 and Swedish Inzpira magazine

What a beautiful day it has been this Friday, really hope tomorrow will be equally nice. Hubbs has gone to Mama Thai around the block, no cooking this evening! Max, Elsa and Alice have a treat waiting too - can you believe it but our fur babies are crazy about tinned corn! shrimps are sneered at but when they see me take out the tin from the cupboard ... bonanza!

Another yummie treat is the palette just released over at The Color Room. It is designed for the Swedish scrappy magazine Inzpira.

Ingvild Bolme is our GD for the month of August and boy is her layout totally droolworthy!

The DT has come up with some mighty amazing layouts again and Ayeeda has made a fab tutorial on how she made her mixed media page this week. That girl is incredibly inspirational! a total blast when it comes to creativeness.

Well, I didn't go the full monty this time but there is still some mixed media on my page - "This Guy Is Mine".

Nothing fancy with the 2Crafty chippie gate, just covered in Stickles Cinnamon and that's it. Used a Prima packaging and stamped bricks and script. Some Tim Holtz washi tape.

This is the best bit: modelling paste, gel beads, lace, gauze, gold acylic paint and mist.

Cut a crocheted bloom in half and stapled them onto the page.

The punching of the kraft cardstock was a happy accident. The cardstock was too soft so it stuck good into the punch and I had to bend and bang it on the desk to make it come unloose. Looked kind of neat when I had pulled it out so I went along and used it any way.

Before I leave you, I'll show you a peek of the next case file over at CSI:

With this I say bye bye for now and wish you a really wonderful weekend! I'll be back with my two pages for the case file 34 after the weekend.

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila
