Has there ever been one of THOSE lines that come out, that you just have to have, like yesterday? Well, for me the new MME lines that came out at Winter CHA were a MUST-HAVE! I have been drooling over them for months now! So, when they finally came in at my LSS...well, let's just say I was about to burst with excitement! Now on to the damage...I purchased $70 worth of the new lines!! YIKES! I know that sounds bad, but I do get a 20% discount for being on the DT, which brought it down to $55. Then I fortunately had $25 in store credit for some items I had sold in consignment, so luckily, I made it out with only paying $30 out of pocket for a bag full of amazing goodies!
So far, I have created two pages with these lovely products. The first, I can't show until later in March, because it is one of my DT pages for Sketch Support. But I can share the one I created yesterday for Case File #7 at CSI. It's a mix of On the Bright Side and some of the Mrs. Caroline.
I kept looking at this color scheme all week, thinking how in the world am I going to use this? But once I decided to use the red as the dominant color, everything else feel into place. I incorporated smaller amounts of the pink and purple, by using purple baker's twine and pink in the honeycomb shapes and for the butterfly. The evidence and testimony worked perfectly with the theme of my photo and layout. I chose distressing, wood or woodgrain, and stripes for my evidence and for the testimony, I used the inspiration word "root" for my journaling.
So now that I have solved Case File #7, I am REALLY looking forward to "cracking" Case File #8, which was posted last night! It has an AWESOME color scheme and I must say that I am happily delighted...because there is no Purple in this week's color scheme!! :)
