Happy Friday! How beautiful the gallery looks! Thank you for all the beautiful inspiration you share with us every week!
This week, we are celebrating the milestone of our 25th challenge with a little bonus twist to our challenge: Choose a CSI Detective's layout that inspires you and scraplift that layout! We can't wait to see what you do with this special twist!
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!
Emma Trout, this month's Special Agent, is back with another amazingly detailed and beautiful layout.
Our team of Special Investigators is sure to inspire you again this week: Arnlaug Koppang, Irma Peredne, and Paloma Carvalho are back with gorgeous pages. These ladies are enthusiastic participants at CSI, and their work consistently catches our eye in the gallery. Please keep Elaine Rolfe and her family in your thoughts, as her husband is very ill. We hope to bring Elaine back as a Special Investigator at a future time.
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."
As always, Michele has created a fabulous 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.
We continue our celebration of 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 inspiration image (aka "The Scene") was found on Pinterest, pinned from a site called weheartit.com.
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. 25.
(Remember to scroll all the way down for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more thorough explanations of the Evidence and Testimony.)

This looks like a really fun file! Can't wait to get started on it, have a great weekend everyone :)
Looking forward to seeing what you make, Teresa!
I love the colours and both the evidence and testimony! I have one more week of leave and am about to go through my rediculously large photo collection for inspiration, thank you Debbie and congratulations on reaching the first 25!, Best wishes, S
Thank you for the kind words, Susan! Can't wait to see what you make!
Oh, my! This file is gorgeous! perfect for my boyish layouts :)). The coordinates are fab and the CSI Detectives' layouts are stunning, full of inspiration.
A question about the special twist - is scraplifting one of the detectives' layouts a mandatory requirement or is it only an extra one?
Hi, Libeeti. We'd love to see you give the scraplifting a whirl. Maybe you can just choose an element if you're not comfortable lifting a whole design?
If you really are against doing this, you don't have to. :)
Oh, Debbi, that is perfectly ok with me! it's such a nice idea, the only problem was which one of you, talented ladies, to choose for scraplifting... LOL
I've already done my layout, doing exactly what you suggested :).
I only need to take the photo and uplaad it.
I really loved this case file. Thanks for so much inspiration here.
Awesome, Libeeti! So happy you're having fun at CSI!
I so love this colour combo, it fits for so many types of photos and topics. Lovely work everyone!
Great one, hope to be able to play along this time. ( just hope that it is not too stressful in the hospital this week) I already have an idea what to make. Have a great weekend
Oh, I hope you have a peaceful week at the hospital so that you can play, Diana!
Dear ladies I´ll let you know something: It´s being so hard to choose one page to lift....lol
