I made this layout for the case 42 over on the CSI, Color, Stories, Inspiration challenge site and used Sketch 343 from Sketch Inspiration.  I am also participating in WOW Wednesday over on the blog for my local scrapbook store, Cat's Creations Scrapbooks
I made this to go along with the page I did last Friday, using some My Minds Eye "All is Bright" paper.  Even though it is part of their Christmas collection, it doesn't look like it is Christmas paper.  The "scheme" in this case are:  rose red, buttercream frosting, spring green, bluems (navy blue), and aqua blossom.  My background paper has the buttercream frosting and aqua blossom in it, the polka dot paper, the swirl , and embellishments have the red, and the navy is in the banners up at the top, as well as the top brad in the embellishment cluster on the left.  My "evidence" is the polka dot paper strip, the circles, the textured paper for the photo mats, and the flowers on my banner/journaling spots up at the top.  My "testimony" is the flowers on the journaling spots up at the top of the page. 
I used things from numerous manufacturers:  My Minds Eye - the background paper, the polka dot paper, the piece of washi tape ast the bottom, the pearl swirls and banner; Basic Grey - the stiched brads; Glitz - the calendar tag; Cloud Nine - the square epoxy spot, the quote tag in the middle of the banners at the top; Reminisce - the circle sticker.  The photo mats are cardstock by Wausau and I used a Fiskars paper crimper. 
Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win some blog candy from Cat's Creations Scrapbooks.  Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog.

Nice job Marilyn! I don't know how you do it. I can't seem to think to use that many techniques or items on my layouts!
