CSI Case File #52 - let me count the ways..


Hello and Happy Sunday!

Friday, was the last Case File reveal for CSI and it was a Wowzer!  I don't know how long I sat at my computer and stared at the DT reveal.  It was incredible and so full of crazy talent!

Let's not waste anytime and get right to the reveal!

and the lovely coordinates...

Before I show you my take on the Case File, here is the evidence I incorporated into my layout.

1.  Use woodgrain (there is a subtle hint of a woodgrain stamp on the background)
2.  Use twine/string
3.  Use paint
4.  Use newsprint paper
5.  Use tags
6.  Use circles
7.  Use number stickers

My journaling 'prompt/idea' is actually a combination of several of the testimony ideas.  I was going to list 9 ways I loved my children, but instead, I choose to include a copy of the poem 'How do I love thee, let me count the ways...' by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.  I tucked the poem in the envelope behind the photo.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Please be sure to stop by the CSI website and check out the amazing reveal! 

On a rather sad note, this will be my last 'official' Design Team layout for CSI.  I will be participating on the weekly Case Files from time to time, but need to step down for personal reasons.  Make sure you follow along in January 2013 as we will be celebrating the ONE YEAR anniversary and have many fun challenges and activities in store for you!

I hope your holiday has been a wonderful one and your New Year will be blessed!

As always, thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!
