Hello happy scrappy and blog friends! What a blessing that it has stopped raining in north Texas! We thought for a while we were going to float away! Today, I'm sharing with you,  Case File  #265 for CSI (Color Stories Inspiration).

Here is how I solved the case:

The Scene: I used all five colors.
Evidence: Frames, flowers, something
      transparent, metal, something shiny, gold and
      silver accents
Testimony: I framed my journaling.

Here, you can see all the layers, paper tearing, painting, use of a template, and tons of beautiful embellishments! 

Two of the sources of beauty and joy in my life are my adult children. I know that my son is more handsome, but he is a wonderful son and has a good heart. To me, that is beautiful.

My journaling reads, "One of my favorite poems is about beauty. Beauty of the heart and soul. I believe it applies to men, women, boys and girls. Follow this heartfelt poem by Audrey Hepburn for a happy and fulfilled life."

Ms. Hepburn's poem reads as follows:

Beauty Tips

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. 
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. 
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. 
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it 
     once a day. 
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone. 
People, even more than things, have to be restored, 
     renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never
     throw out anybody.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one 
     at the end of your arm. 
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two 
     hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the 
     figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. 
The beauty of a woman is sseen in her eyes, because that 
     is the doorway to her heart, the place where love 
True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. 
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she 
And the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years. 

Thank you to everyone who leaves a comment!
