Double Agent for CSI and Megs Garden

This month Megs Garden is sponsoring over at CSI 
There are some truly magnificent prizes to win 
for Megs Garden 

 for CSI 

Megs Garden is sponsoring for the entire month of June.
There are 4 case files in June, one each week .
The first case file #126

I added some kraft paper to blend in with the vintage theme .
For My background, I primed with gesso, stamped and added some texture paste with a mask
I colored my swirly images ( from the mask )  with ink ( the orange is brighter IRL ?)
Here it appears more rusty than orange ...sometimes this happens with photographs.???? 

Megs Garden Items used  
Correspondence Collection.
blue vintage brads
vintage trinkets  
open paper flowers
leafy dies

flowers, leaves, hearts, numbers, flourishes.
I used the inspiration word celebrate in my journaling.
A reason to celebrate !
This photograph of my Mother and Father was taken in circa' 1935
on their engagement .
My Mother died at age 46 when I was 12.
