Always Imagine - CSI/Scrapmatts Guest Design

Hello Scrappy friends, welcome to my blog today.

I have a combined CSI case file 202/Scrapmatts page to share.
This challenge is open for the entire month of June.

The Scheme
All colours used


Solid white background
Grid pattern with the white texture paste
Speech bubble
Border punch
Enamel dots

The Scrapmatts chipboard pieces are:-

CB 1232 Film Strips 05
CB 1237 Scrap Words 23 A

The green word is from Heidi Swapp

The texture was created with a Scrapmats Stencil ST 1003


I journalled about a building constructed by these two kidlets.
The story is on the back of the page.

It was a cold and rainy day during the school holidays and you were restless because you couldn’t play outside.

We decided to build a garage with toilet roll tubes. You glued the rolls together in a pyramid shape and stuck them onto a heavy piece of cardboard. Working in harmony, you debated each move in the process, deciding together, what would fit where. The final step was to paint the whole structure green and see which match box cars would fit inside. You joined a box on the end so the planes could land on the roof. You were so proud to take your building home to show Mummy and Daddy.
