A new month another challenge.

Merry Monday everyone! Over the weekend I created a page for CSI: Colour, Stories, Inspiration  I always find the time to browse through all the amazing creations by the DT at CSI but I've found the challenges quite daunting. However I've finally bitten the bullet and had a go. It was made very easy by the fact that I'm in love with the colours this week and had the perfect photos to match :) Gotta love that!

So here is the Case File:

And this is my take:

I've had this lovely sheet of Basic Grey Pink Paper for soooo long and I've been waiting for just the right photos to come along. Here are the closies:

Hidden journalling:

I so love pink & green together with a little black & white thrown in. I was tweaking this page right up until this morning (10 mins before I had to be at work), but I think I'm happy with the end result.  The photos were taken by Steve Hill (my DD's partner) on their recent trip to Paris - I'm so jealous! So expect a few more layouts with a Paris theme :)

Thanks for looking and please leave some lovin' so that I know you've visited.


  1. Ah Paris, sigh, gorgeous Jo and I am like you I was drawn to this colour palette as well. Love your cluster and little bird house and the bike. Gorgeous pic and love your title

  2. This looks gorgeous and well worth the wait to use the paper. I too love the title.

  3. came over to exciting! Jo, your work is absolutely worthy of CSI. I felt intimidated initially too, but it's a warm and welcoming place to play. No one thinks they are superior and best of all, we get dragged out of our comfort zones. Your page absolutely yells spring and to have spring is Paris is the cherry on the top. Beautiful :)

  4. What gorgeous photos and a lovely layout! Beautiful job!
