My Big Boy




This weeks colours at CSI are so bright and happy - perfect for these photos of Benji's 4th birthday. Here is my take for the CSI design team. 

These are two of my favourite photos - I love the photo of his Thomas cake (lovingly baked by his big sister natalie) and I love the proud little smile on his face as he rides his brand new 2-wheeler bike for the first time (albeit with trainer wheels). 
My papers are a mix of the beautiful 'Maggie Holmes' collection (from Crate Paper) and Studio Calico goodies. From the evidence list I chose circles and tone on tone and I made a circular journaling tag with a sentiment running through the middle to satisfy the testimony criteria. The gorgeous chipboard number strip is from 2 Crafty. I painted it with black distress paint and coated it with dimensional magic. Here is a wee close-up.


I love how glossy the end result is. 
Hope you are having a great weekend and you have time to visit the CSI blog and have a go at this awesome challenge yourself!
