Hi everyone, it's time for a new color palette at CSI!
and this one is an absolute stunner

and since I am a Special Investigator here's my framed piece
I certainly get a kick out of this!!! LOVE it!

here are some close ups of my work, the stars are sequined beauties made by Harmonie
I switched the pink centers for pearls to go with the palette
the extra stars from my punch were scattered around the page

here's a close up of my journaling documenting our trip to Culebra to snorkel among sea turtles, so magical and so special!!
Now I wanted to tell you about my net, it is a circular piece that is found in butcheries to wrap meat before baking, oh well I am resourceful. My mother brought it for me from a butcher in North Carolina since it is not sold here in Puerto Rico.
Little did she know I would use for scrapbooking.
I split it in half and then manipulated it around with my sewing machine so that it looked like a fishing net.  The way our fishermen drape it to dry after coming from the sea.
Then I broke it further to make way for my journaling!
there are real sea shells also as my ephemera on the net!

Thanks so much for being such cool investigators and coming to read some more here.
If you are a regular visitor, thanks!!! and to see the full view come to CSI to see the page!!!

Luv ya!
