Hi everyone,

It's Case File #102 this week over at CSI - a challenging colour combination for me, but lots of fun design elemnts and journaling prompts and as it's the second Tuesday in the month, we also have a sketch from Emma Stafrace at Page Drafts.

Here's the Case File (click on the image to enlarge it so you can read the clues)

Each week, CSI Mastermind Debbi Tehrani finds a new Scene for us to investigate. From this image, she take sthe colours for the Scheme, inspiration for design elements and techniques and ideas for journaling prompts. CSI = Color, Stories, Inspiration.

To solve the Case, all you need to do is to make a scrapbook page using the following clues:

  • All 5 colours in the Scheme
  • At least 2 items from the Evidence list
  • At least 1 piece of Testimony

The photos on this page show my eldest son Richard when he was 20 months old and his little brother Tom was about six months. I was going through a seriously life-consuming bout of OCD, so I was continually checking and cleaning, and Richard loved to help Mummy ... here he is outside with his duster and his polish cleaning up the yard - bless! :o)

So, did I follow all the clues?
  • Sketch: a dream to work with as always
  • Scheme: all the colours are there
  • Evidence: leaves, birds, dots.
  • Testimony: this is written on a tag which I trimmed with wooden leaves and tucked behind the photo.
"Rich you were such a sweet little boy, always ready to help and busy doing nothing with your imaginary friends Cast Iron and Beano. This picture was taken when you were 20 months and Tom was six  months old - at this time you used to love pottering around with Mr Sheen and a duster, helping Mummy. Here you are polishing up your truck and you can see the tail-end of Badger the cat walking off in a huff because she didn't like the sound of the spray. Four Lanes 1984 xxx"

Here's a close-up so you can check for clues ...

Thanks for looking at my page - check out the gallery over at CSI for loads of ideas and inspiration and why not have a go at solve Case File 102 yourself? You have over a week - ages! :o)

Happy Christmas! xxx
