Happy Friday! It's a new month, which means lots of new and exciting things at CSI!
Our newest CSI Detectives make their debut this week! We are excited to welcome Adrienne Ford, Annette Gearside, Anita Stokes, Ellinor Bergdahl, Heather Jacob, Helena Virpi, Maiko Kosugi, and Sarah Martin to the CSI Detective team!
We have an awesome new sponsor for May, C'est Magnifique Kit Club, purveyor of beautiful and elegant kits. The C'est Magnifique design team are here as our Guest Detectives, and their inspiration is très magnifique! Joining us this week are Nadia Cannizzo, Valerie Serfozo, Camilla Ekman, and Fi Kenward. Thank you, Leslie, for your generosity in sponsoring CSI this month!
We want to thank Sarah HIll and the fabulous Paper Bakery design team for their beautiful creations throughout the month of April. We appreciate your generosity and inspiration!
Our Special Agent this month is Anna Sigga. Her beautiful style is sure to inspire you. And we have gathered a very talented team of Special Investigators for May: Ashley Horton, Gayle Price, Helen Wallace, and Jennifer Snyder. Their gorgeous work has caught our eye in the gallery again and again, and we are delighted to have them join the team this month!
Please use the links to visit all these ladies' pages in the Guest Detective forum to say hi and to hear how they responded to our "Interrogation."
A new month also brings a brand-new theme. May is Gifts of the Garden Month, and we have a beautiful series of Case Files to play with this month!
As always, Michele has created an awesome set of printables for you! CSI Coordinates can always be found at the bottom of the reveal threads. Scroll all the way to the bottom, where it says "Attachments." They are just above the reply box. Read about some tips on how to use these cool printables here.
So are you ready for the first challenge of May? Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 18. Our fantastical "Scene" that inspires this week's Case File comes from Ruche, as seen on Design Sponge.
(Remember to scroll all the way down for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more thorough explanations of the Evidence and Testimony.)
