Happy August! {ALREADY?!}

It's time to share my Design Team project for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Here's this month's case file 235:

I met Lisa, who is now a dear friend, through scrapbooking, so when I saw this case file includes purple (Lisa is a purple-aholic!) and the topic was girlfriends, I thought it was a perfect chance to celebrate finding a "kindred spirit" in my scrappy friend who shares my love of cats and scrapping {of course!}

  1. Oh Carrie! This is my new favorite too! You really out did yourself!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it (especially because there's purple!). I am honored, touched and truly humbled that you picked me to showcase. Your close up photos are breath taking, like I could just reach out and touch and feel the real thing! Absolutely love the stamping & the purple cheesecloth & the microbeads - every detail adds its own beautiful touch. This is gorgeous!!!!!!!!! Thank you for making my day and for being in my life! You are a wonderful friend and I plan to hold on to and treasure every moment of our friendship. Love, Lisa :)

  3. How nice to put a face to the name. Lisa is always the first to comment on your layouts, and I can see how much she admires your work.

    Beautiful use of the CSI colours, Carrie. It seems that everyone went for purple as in the scene picture, where I went more by the colour description. I love the texture of the coloured cheese cloth. All the different types of little beads add such pretty touches. The flowers and leaves are so pretty. There is an overall softness to the layout that makes it quite special. Great job, as always. ♥
