Happy April, CSI Members! A new month brings so many new things to CSI: a new sponsor, new Guest Detectives, and a new team of Special Investigators. April is National Poetry Month, so that's the theme that will tie all of our Case Files together (yes, we are hoping you will try your hand at writing some poetry this month!). Our Case File also has a brand-new look, thanks to Michele Singh.
We want to thank our March sponsor, Words or Whatever, for their generosity in sponsoring us, and their awesome design team for providing inspiration all month. A hearty thanks to Melinda Thompson, our Special March Guest Detective, for sharing her gorgeous creations with us. And a great big hug and thank you to our first team of Special Investigators--Debbi McCue, Ellinor Bergdahl, Jennifer Shaw, and Sarah Martin. Their amazing contributions show why they were chosen as Special Investigators!
Now on to April. We are thrilled to have The Paper Bakery Kit Club sponsor us this month, and their design team is going to be with us all month providing fantastic inspiration! Joining us this week are Sarah Hill, owner of the Paper Bakery, Amanda Johnson, Angela Gutshall, Erin Yamabe, Grace Tolman, and Mary Ann Jenkins. CSI Detective Tina Walker is also on the Paper Bakery design team.
Our Special Guest Detective for April is Sarah Klemish! We just love how she's interpreted the Case File with her clean and classic style.
And our April team of Special Investigators is sure to wow you. This month, we have Adrienne Ford, Heather Jacob, Helena Virpi, and Tracee Provis joining us. Their gorgeous work has caught our eye in the gallery time and time again, and we just had to ask them to be a part of CSI team this month!
Please use the links to visit all these ladies' pages in the Guest Detective forums and say hi and hear how they responded to our Interrogation.
So, are you ready for the first April challenge? The first week of April marks National Week of the Ocean. Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 14.

We can't wait to see what you create!
Happy April everyone! What a great challenge for this week. I love the photo the color scheme was pulled from. Can't wait to get going on this one.
Looking forward to seeing what you'll make this week, Trina!
Awesome Case File this week (as always!!) Thanks so much for the chance to be a Guest Detective!!
So happy to have you playing with us, Mary Ann!
Very beatuiful case! The DT's work are all fab and very inspiring.
It's a challenging one for me, having boys' photos to scrap... ruffles, balerina pink, buttery yellow with a touch of peach... I guess I'll have to be very creative with this one... LOL but I think I will give it a try :).
Thanks for so much inspiration, ladies!
Challenge is good, right? :)
Why not scrap about yourself, Libeeti? Perhaps even a picture of you as a child?
Otherwise, focus on the other colors and use pink just to accent.
Thank you, Debbie, for your reply and ideas!
I did as you suggested and did a lo with my photo...
Evengually the challenging part was the 'greenish brown'... I didn't have anything like it in my stash, but I didn't give up! and I loved the sanding effect! I totally forgot using this technique so thank you for bringing it.
Looks like an awesome challenge, I'm excited to have a go at this one as I am new to the site....looks like it will be lots of fun :-)
Welcome, Kristie-Anne! Oh, I do hope you'll play--it's so fun! Looking forward to seeing how you solve the Case File!
This inspiration pic is just adorable! I Really luv the soft pretty colour scheme! Hopefully I get a chance to play along!
gasp! I LOVE these colors and ohhhhh my gosh to the DT's inspirational pieces. Oh boy what a perfectly soothing palette
I wonder what fun Escape Kitty will be having this week!
