Escape from the daily routine

Edit: On the Watch List

Today I'd like to share with you my take on case file #105 at CSI, and for some other challenges.
Here's case file #105 at CSI, with the fab sketch drawn by the talented Em Stafrace:
Here's how I solved the case:
Sketch - checked (I skipped the banner between the title and the small photo, but otherwise kept very close to the sketch);
Scheme - all 5 colors are there;
Evidence - circles, stars, stitching;
Testimony - I used the inspiration work 'Escape' both for my title and for my journaling (on the hidden tag), which says: "Routine can be so tiring. day after day - work, household duties, taking care of the kids, same supper, same place, same things.
Sometimes I just want to break away, but it's so  hard to do. Instead, I put some groceries in a basket and off we go the sea side. Playing with the waves, building sandcastles, eating on the mat, having lots of fun. This is my kind of escape from the daily routine, my very needed escape."
I guess most of you, moms, can realate to my journlaing, isn't it? :)
I was also inspired by the moodboard at Scrap Around The World:
My first inspiration was the beach theme, and the sand on the right upper photo. I was also inspired by the bouquet in the basket on that photo and by the cluster of tea cups, layered one on top of the other.
Here are some close-ups on the details:




The flourish chipboards were painted with Portfolio oil pastels and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The small frame (Imaginarium designs) was also painted with Portfolio oil pastel and heat emobossed with honey embossing powder, the same as I used for the stars on the background.
I matted the photos with a recycled item - a package of Hebrew alphabet set, so it also goes for the recycling challenge at Scrap Africa, and since the matting is with polka dots pattern, it also goes for the polka dots challenge at Frosted Designs.
The flowers were made with Die-Namics dies. 
Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. Your comments are much appreciated.
דף חדש שנוצר בהשראה של כמה אתגרים, ומשלב הרבה טכניקות, הן בבניית הרקע והן בשימוש בצ'יפבורדים.
השתמשתי בצ'יפבורדים לבנים וצ'יפבורדים קראפט, שעברו טיפולים עם צבעי שמן ואבקות אמבוסינג. הפרחים נחתכו עם תבניות חיתוך של die-namics. הרקע עבר טיפול של מסיכות עם אבקת אמבוסינג, דיו דיסטרס, חותמות, מיסטים (ירוק ואפור). הכותרת הורכבה מטיקרס ומאותיות מקולקציה של Fancy Pants.
תודה שקפצתן לבקר וכמו תמיד אני שמחה לקרוא את תגובותיכן.

Great page Libeteeti! Looooove the splattered and stamped background and the lovely photies! Gorgeous page! Can totally relate to your escape...and te seaside is definitely a great one, but is too far away for us. For me it's sometimes a walk to the park, or a swim at my parents place...or just a little quiet scrappy time! It's sometimes just grabbing those 10min! ;-) Thanks so much for playing along with us at Scrap Africa! ;-)
