I was thrilled to participate in the team up between CSI and The Cut Shoppe, I created a layout based on challenge 169, which was a bit hard for me. I really had to step out of my comfort zone for the colors, which isn't a bad thing, it just made me think a little harder than I usually do.
Here's the challenge.
Here is my take. I found patterned paper that seemed to work for the colors in the challenge, then built my layout around it.
Here are some closeups, you'll notice I used the free NSD cut file for this layout. You can still grab the set, which is AWESOME, right here.
I enjoyed the challenge, and really like the layout I created. Make sure to check out all of the CSI challenges here.
