La La Land

Here we are in June already. Where did May go?

I am really pleased to have been added to the talented group of ladies on the design team at http://csichallenge.blogspot.com  I've been thinking of giving it a go for a while now, and decided to try it out for the 6 months term. Thank you Debbi. ♥

If you haven't played yet, why not give the challenge a try. The rules are simple;

*Use all 5 colours. Neutrals such as black, white, and kraft (tan) are allowed.
*Choose at least 3 items for the Evidence list as your embellishments.
*Choose one (or more) of the prompts from the Testimony list to write your journaling.

It's that easy.

Debbi posts new challenges on the 1st, and on the 15th, of every month.
You'll be challenged and surprised at how beautiful your layouts will turn out.

Ready to play ?

Here's the challenge for the month of June.



I have to admit, when I saw the colours and the Superhero theme I thought, "Oh, oh...".  Royal blue has got to be one of my least favorite colours. I had none of it in my stash. A trip to Michael's fixed that. I did, however, know exactly what my layout would be about, and it had nothing to do with superheros.


Here's how I solved the case:



The colours Royal Blue, Turquoise, Bright Buttery Yellow, White, and Primary Red are all there.

From the Evidence list: Stripes, Twine, StarburstsStars and tiny Hearts.

I chose the Inspiration Words, Super, Awesome and Wow, as a kickstart to my journaling. Those words clearly represent the way I feel about La La Land.

I would say that the journaling is the most important part of my layout. If you haven't seen La La Land, and plan on seeing it, you might want to skip the journaling as it contains spoilers.

And there you have it. I enjoyed working on my very first Design Team assignment, and hope you'll find something that inspires you to join us.
 
 
I'm leaving you with the movie trailer for this magical movie. Enjoy !

Look at that hair !

Hello ladies,
I thought I would combine two challenges in one layout this month. The first is Case File 229 at CSI, and the second is the Tic-Tac-Toe board at Scrap Our Stash.

Here they are:

And here is my layout
 
 
From the Tic-Tac-Toe board I chose the left column Journal card, The Colour Yellow, and 3+Pattern Paper.

**********************************************************************************

For the CSI Case File, I incorporated the five colours: Turquoise, White, Lemon Yellow, Pale Blue, and Grey.



The Evidence include:
- Plain cardstock
- Flowers
- Word/phrase stickers

For the Testimony I wrote my journaling in a loopy cursive.

The translated journaling reads;
"Look at that hair !"
It's no wonder that is what most people say when they see Coraline. Not all two year old little girls have such long hair.

**********************************************************************************

I hope you can take inspiration from all of the beautiful layouts posted on both sites.

Thank you for taking the time to look at mine.

Jacynthe ☺
