Greetings to all of my happy scrappy friends! Today I'm sharing a layout that I created for the design team at CSI...AKA: Color Stories Inspiration.

The prompt for Case File No. 210 is a treat to work with. I think the colors are beautiful, and the choices of evidence as possible additions to your layout is fun.

The backgrounds for all of my work are full of texture and dimension. I feel adding those two elements contribute a great deal of interest in the piece as a whole. 

Liz enjoyed getting to add her bubblegum to this gum wall and naturally, a photo was necessary. Who doesn't enjoy blowing a bubble every once in a while? 

Layering, painting, embossing, texturizing, 3-D work, fussy cutting and inking were techniques used for this layout.

Thanks for stopping by and especially for leaving a comment! 


  1. Beautiful.. the colors are amazing.. love all the details..

    1. Lizzy, thank you for the kind remarks! I always enjoy knowing that people have stopped by.

  2. Gorgeous, Patty! I love the texturing. The watery-colors in the background are reminiscent of the gum wall--perfect! And I just LOVE those little hanging hearts from the top!

    1. Carrie, thanks for noticing and comparing the colors to the gum on the wall. I looked up Seattle Gum Wall on line and apparently many "contributors" are getting very artsy with their gum designs. Thanks for stopping by honeybee!

  3. Gum walls smell like GUM!! We've seen several in our travels and it surprised me that the gum still has scent! Fun page, fun photo, PIC! <3
