CSI 53 - solved

Happy New year!
Wow that was a much longer hiatus than I anticipated, I hope everyone's 2013 has started well.
I am hopefully back to normal now after the Christmasness has faded til the next time, I wanted to pick a word for the year and it took me ages to decide, but I finally did and my word is TRAVEL.
I have a lot of trips planned for this year both spiritual and physical  so I hope this will be a good word for me in 2013.
My first share for the year is Case file 53 over at CSI, and before we go any further I just want to wish them a very Happy Birthday and congratulate Debbi for creating such a wonderful home for us scrappers!
I almost shied right away from this palette as it has the dreaded colour purple/lilac in it but I'm glad a persisted as it is a beautiful combination
This was the file
And here is my take, and the first page of my book of me that I plan to do throughout 2013, using my scraps and older stash.

I decided on 81/2 x 11 for my book and had forgotten how nice it is to scrap this size
My evidence
Flowers - the mask I used is a floral one
Metal - Arrow paperclip
Texture Paste
Fabric - I used gauze behind my picture  & my thickers are felt
I wrote a Haiku

Sitting Quietly
Immersed in an awesome book
Is what I love best
I have used all the colours and then some got covered up when I layered my pic so I added a few small pops with the brads and epoxy sticker
There are lots of fun things going on at CSI this month why dont you investigate and play along
