What an amazing first week we had! Thank you to all the CSI Members who joined our site and jumped right in to solve the very first Case File. What a thrill to see all those wonderful layouts in the gallery! If you haven't yet had a chance to solve Case File No. 1, you still have time (see the black counter in the right sidebar of most pages. You will always have a week plus an extra weekend to complete the challenge.
Last week, we were so excited to announce that The Dusty Attic is our January sponsor. Mistra Hoolahan and Michelle Grant, our guest designers from The Dusty Attic design team, and Nadia Cannizzo, our special January guest designer, are here again this week with absolutely gorgeous inspiration.
If you haven't had time to familiarize yourself with the challenges, you will want to take some time to read the article "How the Challenge Works." Also, please take a moment to read the guidelines here for some logistical rules.
We continue our January Alice in Wonderland inspiration with another image from the Tim Burton film. The colors this week are so lovely and bright and positively dreamy. You will again see how versatile the color scheme is and how the look of this palette can change dramatically, depending on the neutrals you use and the proportions of the colors you design with.
Now, CSI Members, get out your forensics kits and get ready for some sleuthing as we reveal Case File No. 2...
