Hello and Happy Friday! Who is ready for a PARTY?? A CSI Party that is!
CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration turned one this month, and we've been celebrating with fun and festivities all month long. But what's a birthday party without presents?
We are rounding out CSI's birthday celebration with a huge pile of presents! The talented and very generous CSI design team, aka the CSI Detectives, have prepared special blog posts for you this week, and all you have to do is leave a comment on participating design team members' blogs for a chance to receive a present from them! The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you'll have to receive a gift!
We also have the brand-new company Blue Fern Studios joining our blog hop! Our very own Detective Michele Singh is the designer of this company's beautiful chipboard, and we are delighted to have Blue Fern Studios join us to celebrate our birthday on the month they were introduced to the world!
The CSI Birthday Presents Blog Hop will run from January 25 - 29. Winners will be announced in our Full Disclosure (Announcements) Forum the following week. A newsletter will go out to members once this announcement is posted.
Here is a list of the blogs you will want to visit:
But what's a party without a SUPER DUPER CSI Challenge to go with it?? Check this week's challenge out.....
And the lovely coordinates by Michelle!
Here is my take on the challenge!
My evidence includes:
1. Use clouds
2. Use something that dangles or hangs
3. Use something translucent
4. Make a little packet that holds little bits of something
5. Use plain cardstock background (there is a sheet of white cardstock as my background)
My journaling is hidden behind my photo. I took inspiration from the following testimony: '13 hints for a happy life'
13 tips for a happy life
1. Give people more than they expect.
2. Be generous.
3. Be forgiving of others and yourself.
4. Be loyal.
5. Be honest.
6. Take good care of those you love.
7. Be bold and courageous.
8. Smile more.
9. Love yourself.
10. Eat chocolate.
11. Pet a dog.

13. Never stop dreaming.
I can't wait to see how you are inspired by the challenge this week.
