Its week two of my Special Investigator spot at C.S.I and this weeks Casefile #41 is a fresh soft pastel palette that is right up my alley. I am loving all the muted tones of late and this one didn't disappoint. I created another digital page using a sequence of photos I took a couple of years back of myself and my trusty Canon 1000D EOS. I love these photos and although I have used them a few times already they were a perfect contrast to the color palette.

My Evidence includes lots of {texture} and {layers} using various digital brushes borders and element stacks to reflect that. An {Ombre} cardstock base, some cute hearts and some wire brackets for the {Gold Elements} and finally in a very loose way the camera lens represents {Something that opens}.

My testimony is based on the Journal Prompt #12: Early Days, from the 
It invited you to discuss how our childhood defines a lot of who we are as people. This specific journal prompt, wanted you to talk about one significant moment in your childhood. It was a difficult one to go with but I was up to the challenge. 

So journalled about my childhood without a father and how this saddens me even more so now that I have a child of my own and witness daily how amazingly close my son and husband are. But I also talk about how I share some commonalities with my father like the love of photography and that if anything this is the one thing that inherently connects us. Anyways no matter how poorly I wrote it, it was somewhat cathartic perhaps I should share more about the things that cause me pain...hmmmm baby steps tee hee!
