Happy Friday! It's been so lovely logging on and seeing the gallery this week! Our gallery has been a veritable sea of tranquility, swimming with all the beautiful work you've done for Case File No. 32. We continue our theme of "Down by the Sea" with another awesome Case File, and we're sure you'll enjoy the nautical theme.
We are enjoying having Peace, Love & Scrapbooking as our August sponsor! You can read all about them on the front page. We are excited to have Pam Pritzl and Lisa Haiss, from the Peace, Love & Scrapbooking design team, join us as Guest Detectives this month.
Our August Special Agent is Bente Fagerberg. As you have seen, from the first two August Case Files, Bente is a master at distressing and using color to complement her photos.
We are also excited to have our August team of Special Investigators back again with gorgeous creations: Ali Parris, Belinda Spencer, Debbie Standard, and Milagros C Rivera.These ladies' work has consistently caught our eye in the gallery, and we are thrilled to have them with us 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."
As always, Michele has created a gorgeous set of printables for you! Check out all the awesome nautical elements Michele included this week!
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 this week's challenge? Our theme for August is Down by the Sea. This week's Case File was inspired by the beautiful photograph of a the Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket.
Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 33.

I've always loved this colour combo but rarely use it. Will see how I go. I'm still working on #32, but 33 is my favourite number!
