Happy Friday! We hope you enjoyed the first Case File for the Queen's Birthday month, and we can't wait to share this week's challenge. We think you'll agree that this week's challenge is the bee's knees!
We are delighted to have the Little Black Dress Kit Club as our June sponsor. One peek at their site, and you will know that Little Black Dress is a hip, trendy, fashionable kit club. Little Black Dress is going to give prizes to three lucky winners this month! And we're so excited to have their design team join us as Guest Detectives for June. Joining us this week is Valerie O'Neall.
Our team of Special Investigators is sure to inspire you this month: Arnlaug Koppang, Irma Peredne, and Paloma Carvalho. These ladies are enthusiastic participants at CSI, and their work consistently catches our eye in the gallery. We were very sad to hear that Elaine Rolfe will not be able to be with us for the rest of the month. Elaine just learned that her husband is very ill, and our hearts go out to her. Will you please say a special prayer for Elaine and her family?
Please use the links to visit all these ladies' pagesin the Guest Detective forum to say hi and to hear how they responded to our "Interrogation."
As always, Michele has created a fantastic 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.
As you learned last week, we are celebrating all things royal in June, as June is the month of the Queen's Birthday! My very good British friend, Tracee Provis told me that this year is an especially momentous year, as it's the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. This year, the Queen will celebrate 60 years on the throne. Our delightful inspiration image (aka "The Scene") came from Susan Mitchell, illustrator of whimsical, magical images.
So are you ready for this week's challenge? Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 22.
(Remember to scroll all the way down for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more thorough explanations of the Evidence and Testimony.)
Our talented team of Special Investigatorshave solved the case this way...
And here is how the CSI Detectiveshave solved the case, arranged by predominant color in the order of The Scheme...
EVIDENCE (CHOOSE AT LEAST 2 ELEMENTS)
TESTIMONY (CHOOSE AT LEAST 1 ELEMENT)
We trust we've left enough clues for you to solve the case!
The deadline for completing Case File No. 23
is Sunday, June 17, 11:59 p.m. EST.
Thus, you have a week plus the two weekends to complete your layout.
(See count-down timer on the right-hand sidebar of most pages.)
We can't wait to see what you create!

Printables are truly inspired--thanks Michele! I am SO inspired to try this challenge, thanks to a small encouragement from Erica, who responded in my Introduction. I already have the picture in mind; very rarely am I inspired in order! Let's see if I can make the deadline!
Michele's Coordinates are awesome, aren't' they?
So glad you introduced yourself and that you're jumping into the Case Files. Looking forward to seeing what you make, Shari!
