Magical Transformation

Transformation seems to be a bit of a running theme for me this month!

Case File #75 over at CSI this week was full of those gorgeous pastel colours which I LOVE the look of but always struggle to actually work with for some reason - I pull out all these beautiful papers and trinkets and trims and then manage to turn it into a big porridgey mess!

Here's the Case File in all its pastel prettiness - perfect!


CSI Mastermind Debbi Tehrani has found another Scene for us to investigate and from this inspiration image she has pulled the colours, design elements and journaling prompts. These are the Clues you have to follow in order to solve the Case
  • All five colours in the Scheme
  • At least two items of Evidence
  • At least one piece of Testimony
For further help in solving the Case, you can download the CSI Coordinates - these are free printable patterned papers, images and journaling spots designed especially for each Case File by the amazing Michele Singh.

And here is my solution to the case - a porridgey mess which I couldn't even manage to photograph very well ... tsk ... I had a lovely time with it though!


The Scheme: I used all the colours, plus kraft
The Evidence: lace; chevrons; flowers; distressing; jewels; ruffles; wood; door accent; heart; gold.
The Testimony: I documented our home-made wedding - when you open the door, there is a photo of the marquee all ready for our wedding picnic. Months of planning and creating, culminating in several hours of hard work with a dedicated group of wonderful friends had transformed a slightly dodgy-looking hired marquee into the magical scene I had imagined and there was a moment when we all suddenly paused for breath and saw what we had created ... the journaling reads "With a lot of hard work and help from our friends and a sprinkling of magic, at last the unpromising hired marquee was transformed into the vision of loveliness which I had imagined - don't you just love it when a plan comes together? <3 x"

Here are some pictures of my evidence under the magnifying glass!
