A couple of challenges

Hi There!

2 posts in a day WOW!! I have been getting my mojo on with a couple of challenges this month! Callenges are such a great starting point!

I had a play over at CSI- ColorStoriesInvestigations for Case File# 33

The nautical theme & colours really caught my eye!
If you have never played at CSI the rules are you need to use the color palette plus 2 lots of eveidence & 1 lot of testimony . I used a mix if MME & Websters Pages plus some cute ephemera that CSI supply for every case file with the CSI Coordinates!

My Evidence was liquid medium (gesso), wood grain (the background MME paper) transparent (a transparent Websters Pages Yacht Club frame) & nautical elements (CSI coordinate ephemera)

My Testimony was journal strips & a riddle from Dr Suess Oh the places you will go. " you have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes, you can streer yourself  any direction you choose"

The next challenge I played along with was over at the Cheery Lynn blog. The challenge was to create something using a Cheery Lynn Die with the theme doily.

 I have used a Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily & the Cheery Lynn French Lattice Die. I have so many of their gorgeous dies on my wish list! They all have so much detail to them!
I have used Prima Almanac papers & notecards with a MME ribbon.
I will be back soon with a couple more challenges!
