CSI - Special Investigator - Case File #85

Another week and another Case File over at CSI!
Love the inspiration file for this one.

And how I solved the case:

The photo is of my grandparents in Holland when they were engaged, in 1938.
I used a number of die-cuts from Kaiser, which allowed the layout to come together fairly quickly - well certainly not as long as it usually takes me. I think I'll use these die-cuts more often!

SCHEME: I used all the colours, but took the aqua to be a little darker.


  • tags
  • numbers
  • frame


  • Write your journaling on a tag
  • Hand-write your journaling in cursive - I haven't written in cursive for a long time, so it's my version of cursive.:-)
  • Inspiration word: SAVE

Journaling reads:
'Jeroen and Antonia are playing up for the camera, pretending to be busking to save money for their wedding.'

The layouts for inspiration are just AMAZING. Please make sure you have a look HERE.
