Those Blue Eyes
(CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration Major Case File No. 228)

I am excited to have been able to solve not one but two case files
this month from the CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge blog!

This is Case File No. 228 that was the main inspiration for my layout.

I was immediately attracted to the Scene of this Case File.  
What a lovely living room decor!

The Scheme held so many of my favorite colours:
 teal, blue, green and even though it was definitely a challenge
to try to get the right shades, I think I did a pretty good job!

I incorporated many clues from the Evidence list: a solid grey background, chevrons (going vertical on the grey and white patterned paper and on a brad), arabesque shape with the chipboard, flowers, embossing folders (I used 2 - polkadots on the alphas spelling 'blue' and leaves to create the white cardstock leaves), silver metal (several brad edges) and puffy stickers (white Thickers). 

My Testimony consisted of 2 clues: writing about 
my husband's beautiful blue eyes on an artisan-shaped label.

I am super pleased with how I solved this case
and am hoping that you enjoy my layout as well.

Until the next creative crime-solving challenge!


  1. Fantastic layout. I love that you weren't afraid to use flowers on a masculine layout. Great background detail too. Thank you so much for playing along with CSI. xx

  2. Your husband does have beautiful eyes, and the blues in the palette were perfect for your photo. Beautiful layering and textures on here!
