February is the month of love and Valentine’s Day, and this week’s scene was found at Bouf
when searching for an image of a romantic getaway.
So are you ready for this week’s challenge? Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 58.
How I solved the case:
I used all 5 colors from the palette which conveniently appeared in these beautiful Prima papers.
I used another picture from my recent trip to Florida and as testimony, I journaled about my daughter’s love of the beach.
I used metal, String and Twine for Evidence.
Here are some close-ups:
There is also a great challenge at Berry71Bleu
and it asks you to use blank space. I’m usually not one to leave blank space on a layout but this time I did and so I’m entering it for this challenge. It is hosted by Anupama!!
