It's Good to Be Queen

Oh my goodness what a great way to start a month and start a summer!  Look at these fabulous colors for this weeks Case File over at CSI!!!
When I originally saw the color swatches, I thought "military" and started digging out my husbands Navy pictures...but the more I dug, the more I didn't "feel" the vibe.  So, I just browsed thru my picture files and I came across this picture of my dd Erin.  This was take in November, but the colors of her shirt matched so well..and she's a bit of a Drama Queen.. sooooooo  LOL

 My journaling is hidden again this week.  I took two manila tags and covered each with patterned papers.  On one I used Michele Singh's digital creations, CSI Coordinates, that she creates for each and every casefile and are available to our CSI members for FREE..  One tag has my wish list for Erin.  The other, has some sentimental mom journaling.  Eeewww gushy stuff.
I was originally inspired by Susan Stringfellows sketch #84, but this is where thing went awry.  Folks, you can be inspired by a sketch and have your layout look NOTHING like the inspiration.  What's important is that YOU were inspired.  If you've taken a creative turn, it's okay.  I just wouldn't try to spin that in a contest or anything like that..  (folks will scratch their heads and say "Um, not seeing it!")  But do share when and who you receive inspiration from, it gives them a thrill and keeps us honest.
 I had fun playing with some Canvas Corp stitched tags, my rubber stamp and many of my Tim Holtz gadgets and trinkets.  I've been inspired by Tammy Tutterow again on the tag, she stitches, inks, stamps  and just makes wonderful things with tags.
 I hope you enjoy this weeks Case File.  I highly recommend playing along and seeing what YOU create!  We'd love see what you make!  Until next week!!
