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...

We can't wait to see what you create!
Awesome colour scheme. Am really liking the sound of these challenges.
Fun case file! I'm working on my page for this one and it's proved to be fun and challenging. The lavender color has been throwing me for a loop! Lol.
I must admit, I wasn't really crazy about these colors, but did find the perfect pic for them. Others have done so good with it, that I changed my mind. It is a challenge after all so I'm going to give it a shot.
I love seeing all of the responses to the color challenge... I'm dying to see what the journaling prompts lead to... I remember teasing Debbi about yellow all the time.. it was my krptonite! Now..it slides into a layout with ease.. Soooo glad I was challenged with "my" colors! You can flip thru' my albums and see evolution of my scrapping (green, green, green, grey, grey, brown, brown, green, green, YELLOW! PINK! RED! )
I just posted (pant, pant, out-of-breath sounds) Even though we've got the extra days, I still wanted to get it done before Case #3 is posted! This one just would not come together for me - I did two others and threw them in the garbage. I've been a bit obsessed, and haven't spent much time viewing and leaving blog love the way I like to...whew!These colours were beautiful but tough!
Oh, I hade made a LO for this but forgot to put it up. Well, it was fun anyways, and that's the most important :)
Oh, please share, Ellinor--better late than never!
