My Weekend Scrap Retreat ***OUAS***CSI#63

Hello,I am here to share with you a LO I did using Nadia's beautiful sketch for this month & also playing along with CSI....
On this LO I used the beautiful Vintage Summer Basics Collection from Maja Design,out of this collection I used 1933 bs,1943 bs,1912 bs,1909 & memories,I also used Send a Postcard,Send a Post card bs & Wishing You out of the Vintage Winter Collection. The Scrap Fx Chipboard used on this LO is Wordlet Scrap Retreat (2011043) & Dress form A Classic (2011248). Here is Nadia's Sketch for March......
I did hidden journalling on the tag behind the photo.With 5 dogs & moving my elderly parents into my home,I am pretty tied down as a caregiver,so my favorite thing to do on weekends is to Scrapbook.It is my stress release,in the summer I spend a lot of time in my garden. Here is case # 63 from CSI......
For the evidence I used the color palette, ribbon,flowers,pearls,tape measure,stripes,vintage elements,mesh,metal,numbers,stars,lace,tag,sewing & dressform. For the testimony I documented my creative space's,documented my hobby's & used the word inspire.I have 2 creative spaces,& 2 hobbies,they both require a lot of my time,but I love both,they are  therapy to me. To me scrapbooking & gardening are the same,they are about design,color & texture & both reward you with beauty in your completed project.My creative space in my garden is my whole yard, I do a lot of mass planting,so the color & texture takes you from the front yard to the the backyard in the same theme.I scrap space was my living room, dinning room,a room never used & is now used everyday,it is my space!!!! I spend a lot of time on my LO's hand stitching , layer's & distressing,then comes the detail,I can get a little carried away with that.Here are some close ups of detail......
Thank you so much for taking the time to look.....Rachelle
