'Jubilee' CSI case file #206

Morning everyone!

It's time to reveal this weeks new case file over at CSI - color, stories, inspiration!
So let the investigation begin for Case File 206!
This case file is open until the 22nd July. So why don't you have a go with this gorgeous colour scheme (I loved this one) choose your 'testimony' (subject) and then make your layout including some thing from the 'evidence' (embellishments) list! As always there are some amazing prizes to won at the end of each month, so come and 'solve' a case with us!


Here is how I solved the case with my layout!


You all know I live in the United Kingdom, so as the colours are the same as our national flag I have easily been able to scrap something about 'patriotism'. I chose the Diamond Jubilee of our Queen from 2012. It was party month and everyone had street parties and house parties and school celebrations and entered into the spirit of it all!
We had a party at our house which my friends came too with all the kids too and we had a lovely time, dressing up in red white and blue and the kids all had their faces painted with the union jack.

My Evidence used:

* stars
*stripes
* something woven
* flags/banners
*jars
* fabric
* metal
* circles

My Testimony used:

* topic - journal about 'patriotism'
* Inspirational Words - celebrate

As always here are the close ups.
