2nd LO with my April kit

Hi again


Here is my second LO using my April 'Crime of the Century' kit.. so called because it co-incided with my 100th blog post and it is based on a CSI case over on the Counterfeit Challenge Blog.



Amongst other things we were tasked with creating LO's that showed a dream holiday, using 'something sheer', patterned paper and to use crystals. 



This LO uses all of those elements. The photo was taken on holiday in Turkey in 2010.. which was a dream holiday for us as we love dinghy sailing in warm waters. These photos are of my dear husband showing off his skills. I was really pleased with the photos as I was in the boat next to him and getting these pictures of him moving was very difficult. I certainly 'trashed' more photos than I kept!



I used this sketch from the Stuck?! Blog


Flowers weren't really appropriate so I swapped them for stars.. as he's a bit of a 'star' to me.. awwww... 



..and here is the LO I came up with. I used various sized crystals, pearls and gems for the water droplets and some punch outs from a Martha Stewart fan punch for the water sprays. Most of the papers were scraps I had included in by CK kit which I have linked as there is a small giveaway for my followers at the end of April.  Do pop over and have a look.. and remember to leave me a comment to be in with a chance of the prize. 


Thanks for stopping by!
