Woo Hoo I'm a "Special Investigator"
at CSI for July
"Enjoy the Moment"

Hello bloggers. I am sooo excited to share some news with you all. I was invited to be a
 Guest Designer over at CSI for the month of July. We are called "Special Investigator". Oh I am so thrilled & flattered to be invited. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity Debbie.

This is Case File #27 & here  is the criteria. Such a lovely colour palette & a great set of "clues" to go with it. In my layout I have used a rare photo of myself, even though it is not a perfect photo as there is some shadow on my face, it fitted the criteria well. What a shame we can't go back in time & re take such pics.

As you can see I have used lots of "mediums" on my background & about four or five different mists to achieve some nice textures & a blend of colours. I was rather happy with the outcome of my background. I have also used a 2 Crafty chipboard word which I cut up!! I often do this, I just trim them to say what I want & then save the bits I cut off to use on another layout! This actually said 
"Enjoy this Moment This Moment is Your Life". I have also used one of their beautiful Flourish Borders called   Hariet's Border. 

For my "Evidence" I have used  four  pieces to solve my case. I have used flowers, leaves, sparkles in the shimmer of my background & a rainbow effect of sorts. I have created a sort of rainbow effect in my background with the use of mists, "definite artistic interpretation" me thinks !!!!! Of course all my beautiful flowers & leaves are Green Tara of course.

Now for my "Testimony" I have used two things. Firstly I have journalled about the outdoors & secondly I have started my journalling with "a taste of something wonderful" which is taken from the testimony list. This photo was taken on the deck of a Cruise ship whilst sipping a cocktail & embarking on a wonderful holiday so this is what my journalling is about.

Well thanks for stopping by & I hope if you have time you might join in the fun over at CSI.
Until next time.
Cheers Di  xi
