My 1st CSI Design Team share Play

Hello Everyone!!
I am very excited to share my 1st layout as a new Design Team Member over at
 It is such a gorgeous colour combo.
Case File No. 121
This is how I solved it;
The Scheme; I have used all 5 Colours; deep burgundy, ivory, white, black, light gray
Evidence; something transparent, flowers, book pages, cord/twine/jute.
Testimony; Document 4 interesting things about your photo;
1.This grand old piano belonged to Sarah's Nanna Nicholls and sits pride of place in our hallway.
2.Sarah had Piano lesson for 3 years.
3. Sarah loves to play but isn't home much anymore.
 Whenever she does come home she love to sit and play.
4. I love listening to her play. I often sit an listen and wish I could play.

We would love to see you join in and share your layout in the gallery.
Happy Friday! And Happy May! A new month brings lots of new surprises, and this month is extra-special because our brand-new Detectives are making their official debut! Please welcome: Adele Beck, Anna Sigga, Cathy Cafun, Cindy Fortin (aka Violette), Felicity Wilson, Jacqueline Moore, Janice Nicholls, Libeeti Frenkel, Maria Rose, Michelle Whorwood, and Terhi Koskinen 

This is how the challenge works

Tune in each Friday evening (around 6:00 p.m. United States EST) for our weekly reveal to see the current Case File.
The Case File contains the following elements:
"The Scene" - This is the inspiration image from which the color palette, inspiration, and story starters are drawn.
"The Scheme" - This is the palette of five colors you must use. You may add neutrals (black, white, kraft, cream, gray, brown) to these colors. Please try to get your colors as close to this swatch as possible, but don't drive yourself crazy or not play because you don't have the exact shade of a color. If you'd like to add an additional color to accent, please restrict it to about 10% of your page.
"Evidence" - These are elements drawn from the inspiration image that you should include on your page. They may be products, techniques, or other design ideas. Choose two or more to include in your layout. If you see other elements that inspire you in this picture, feel free to add those, too!
"Testimony" - This is the journaling part. Choose one (or more) elements for your journaling. The journaling elements are also drawn from the inspiration image and may be in the form of topic ideas, journaling formats, journaling approaches, or words to inspire your stories. They are meant to spark ideas for you to tell a story on your page. You can combine them, use them as a jumping-off point, or you can always use The Scene (inspiration image) as inspiration for your journaling.
"The Sketch" - New for 2013, CSI is joining forces with the Page Drafts. Em Stafrace, creator of this awesome sketch site, is creating an exclusive sketch for CSI the second week of each month. You may interpret the elements in the design as you wish, but use the basic composition of the sketch. You may flip or rotate the sketch to suit your design.
Detailed Clues - Detailed clues for the Case Files can be found at the bottom of the Case File thread, after all of the design team's layouts are displayed. The clues that are given on the Case File image are explained in more detail in this spot. Links related to the Testimony, RGB codes, and so forth are found here.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope I have inspired you to join in this week.
If you cant find your way around or need to know something, I am more than happy to help...Please Ask.
