For the love of Apps


I had such big plans for National Scrapbooking Day, but oh I’m so easily led.  The sun came out to play this weekend, and that meant my garden was calling me.  Still, I did manage to pop my head into the CounterfeitKit Challenge Blog and checked out their sketches and also one of the case files, they had from the amazing CSI : Color, Stories, Inspiration site. 
So yesterday evening I bought my “kit” down and scrapped while watching the tv.  Normally, I’m forever running back up to my craft room to get something just right for a layout, but only being able to use the kit, certainly made me focus. 
I used this lovely sketch from the site
And this case file
And here’s what I came up with

I honestly, don't know if I'm doing it right LOL.  But I used the colour scheme (best, I could), dots & stripes and buttons from the evidence file; handwriting broken up in different places, as requested in the testimony. But even if I've not done it quite right, I had fun, so that's all that matters really.
The layout is all about one of my all time favourite apps … I’m addicted to my iphone, totally 100% … I’m forever checking out instagram (another obsession) on it, and playing with different photo apps.  A while back I found one called Toast .. it allows you to add filters to the photos you take and change them completely! I just love it. 
Anyway, the photos show the view from our kitchen at the little house, I just never get bored of looking at it, and photograph it constantly … hence the need for more photo apps J

So thank you Counterfeit challenge, you’ve got me hooked on you

  16. Great page, and I love that you were able to do it in front of the TV - I know exactly what you mean about running back up to the craft room! I had to laugh because I used to be always worrying if I had gotten a challenge "right" . . . although if anything my problem is that I can be too literal. I try not to worry too much any more, and just focus on making a finished product that I'm happy with. And I've never attempted a CSI challenge before - just too many different elements to include at once!
