CSI (Color Stories Inspiration), one of my favourite scrapping challenge sites, has its 5th birthday this month. Debbi Tehrani, creator of CSI, has invited Retired CSI Detectives to help celebrate by making a page or two for January and I was thrilled to be asked - especially as I have promised myself I will get back to some scrapping this year, so it's perfect timing!!
Here is the beautiful Case File #221
As it's the first Case File of the month, it includes a sketch by the talented Em Stafrace from The Nifty Pixel
In order to solve the case, you must use: the sketch; all five colours in the Scheme; at least 3 clues from the Evidence; at least 1 clue from the Testimony. Here's how I cracked it ...
So, what clues did I use??
Scheme: predominantly watermelon pink, with pale yellow/ivory, dk choc brown and touches of apple green and turquoise. The neutrals are allowed as extra.
Evidence: tiny dots, string, stamped word, enamel dot, leaves.
Testimony: This is a picture of my niece when she was a little girl. I've described her personality in the form of a recipe. I've also mixed handwriting fonts with letter stickers in my title and subtitle and taken the words life and sweet as inspiration. My journaling reads as follows:
"Take a bowl full of beans, add sweetness, sprinkle with hundreds and thousands of questions, throw in a stubborn streak, temper with affection and season to taste with laughter and fun, add a dash of devillment and garnish with plain weirdness. Marinate in a mixture of joy and adversity and leave to develop for several years and you will have a young woman to be proud of."
Well, this has really got my scrapping mojo going again - I'm going to start on the next one now!!
Thanks for popping in today, see you again soon :o)
