CSI Case File#3 - Live with Abandon/Life Stops for No One

Happy Friday!  I love Fridays for many reasons - the end of the work week - SUPER YIPPEE!  a weekend ahead of crafting, and reveal time at CSI - Colors, Stories, and Inspiration.

Debbi has outdone herself once again...the challenge this week was a tough one.  I had originally intended NOT to create a layout.  I was struggling with the colors and the inspiration prompts and couldn't find the right match.  But, I was looking for a challenge, so last week, I pulled the challenge back out and ended up with TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT layouts, using the same prompts. 

Here's the challenge...

WOW, you say?? too.  :)

So I pulled out my stash and went to work.  Here's my first layout and a short video that explains my design process and challenge elements in more detail.

'Life stops for no-one'

The elements I chose to incorporate into this layout were the following:
* doily print*
* circular elements*
* repetition *
* Use second person point of view *

Here's my second layout, and part two of my design process video.

'Live with abandon'

The elements I chose to incorporate into my layout was the following:
* tags*
* gold metallic elements*
* journal on a tag or series of tags *
* Inspiration words: fulfillment *

I hope you find time to play along with this week's challenge.  Have a great weekend and enjoy your crafting!

Both of these are amazing Tina and it doesn't look like you struggled at all!! I love the black background on the second one!! The purple is killing's been in the past two color schemes!! :) That is my least favorite color of all, but since it's a challenge, I will find some way to make it work!! :) Thanks for the inspiration!!
