Recording the occasion

To be honest I don't really like this photo of us but it was the best we could get on a windy day in Amsterdam doing a selfie! But I did want to scrap the occasion, our wedding anniversay & this weeks CSI case file seemed perfect for the job.
Before you know it... have shared over half your life with your Best Friend.

I enjoyed getting out my stamps & inks to alter the background for this page.
From this case file I used all 5 colours for the scheme. For the evidence I used hearts, stripes, tie something, white space, 2 different alphas & something transparent. For the testimony I journaled about a friendship.
This sketch from Sketchbook 365 was perfect starting point for this page. 
This finished page also uses a small photo meeting this months Merly Impressions challenge too :)
Many thanks for looking x 


  1. I love what you've done with the background....and the sentiment is perfect.
