CSI 38

I really enjoyed playing along with CSI last week so decided to join in again this week. If you are not familiar with this challenge site you should check it out. You get a sketch, a colour palette, and some extra 'clues' to inspire your layout.

Here's my layout for Challenge 38:
Some close ups:
The little cup and teapot are from the hybrid downloadables that are available free to use from CSI.

These wee journal spots are also from the hybrid sheet-love the sentiments:

'Life is just so daily'- ain't that the truth?
So, how did I arrive at that layout?

Well, firstly the inspiration picture, the sketch and the colour palette:
The sketch comes from Once Upon a Sketch, who have joined forces with CSI for a month.

And then 'evidence' - i.e. the techniques and embellishments. I chose these from the longer list:

■newsprint patterN
■china/silverware/cups/pots, etc. as an accent

And finally, 'the testimony' - i.e. the jumping off point for the journalling:

■Document a daily routine.
■Inspiration Words: together, read, daily-- use these as inspiration for your journaling, not just as a title

So, using all those 'clues' has lead to the case being 'solved'  with the creation of my completed layout.

Pam this is gorgeous. I must get into taking photos especially for the layout and move away from family a little. My last challenge for Scraplounge was completed by Noah so that one went down the drain as there was no time to complete another. (He lets himself into my scraproom and uses anything which takes his fancy)
