CSI: Colour Stories Inspiration - case file #220

Live Everyday With Intention
case #220

How I solved the case.
The scheme: pale buttery cream - photo mat and journal strips, pale pink - pink heart on enamel spot, micro beads on chipboard, pale aqua blue and pale minty green - photo mat, muted red - floral embellishments.
Evidence: wood veneer stars, wood veneer and enamel hearts, flowers, sprinkle something - micro beads.
Testimony: the inspirational word "tradition".

I love the finished layout for this case, but this is very different to what I envisaged when the case file was first released. I am loving scrapping the photos from my daughter's (Kenzie) formal and this layout started with the photo. Initially I thought the beautiful mint green of Caitlin's dress would be the perfect highlight for a light, pretty, pastel page. But I was not happy with any of the more pastel background papers I had. I also found it difficult to work the 'muted red' into the I decided to make the red a focus.
