CSI Challenge

Sizzix is sponsoring the challenge blog, CSI (Color, Stories, Inspiration) this month, and the Design Team have been invited to participate as guest designers!  For  those of you who have never gone on this site, it's a weekly challenge using "case files".  There's a photo for inspiration (The Scene), a palette of five colors (The Scheme), prompts for elements to be used (The Evidence), and journaling prompts to be used to tell your story (The Testimony).  For those of you who have trouble thinking of ideas for your layouts, this is a great site!  
I participated in this week's case file #64.

Here's my layout:

For this color combination, Kaisercraft's collection, "Pickled Pear" was perfect.  For my flowers, I used Sizzix's Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die, Tattered Flower Garland Decorative Strip and the Tattered Pinecone die

For my "Evidence" I used rub-ons, stamps, a bird and leaves.  For the hard part, the "Testamony" or the journaling, I chose to write about something I love about me and also the words Create, and Imagine.

I hope you check out the CSI site and join in, there's lot of inspiration and some great prizes!

Beautiful page Jan! Love all the flowers, the great design, the now and then photos, the treatment you gave the Bird Branch (which I also used this week). How great that they have all chosen creative jobs! I hope my creative play will have the same effect on my son :)
