Happy Friday, CSI Suspects!
A new month brings all sorts of new surprises--a new sponsor, a new theme, new Guest Detectives, to name a few. Here in the United States, March is known as a windy month, so March Winds is our theme that will tie together all of our Case Files.
We want to thank Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits once again for their generosity in sponsoring CSI for the month of February and a special thank you to Laura-Lee Audit, the company's owner, for the inspiration she gave us as our Guest Detective. You still have the rest of the weekend to get one more layout into the gallery for a chance at winning a prize from this awesome company.
We are excited to announce that Words or Whatever is our sponsor for March! You will definitely want to play along this month for a chance at winning some of their awesome laser-cut chipboard! We are delighted to have Emma Allen, Gillian Lester, and Monique Follett join us as our Guest Detectives from WOW. Throughout the month of March, other members of the Words or Whatever design team will be joining us as Guest Detectives. Watch for their beautiful work to be showing up in the next few weeks!
Speaking of Guest Detectives, our March Special Guest Detective is Melinda Thompson. Her gorgeous style is certain to inspire you! Be sure to stop by Melinda's page in the Guest Detective forumto get to know more about her.
We have a special feature that we're introducing this month: Each month, we will be inviting a team of Special Investigators, drawn from the players here at CSI, to join the Design Team for the entire month. For March, we have invited Debbi McCue, Ellinor Bergdahl, Jennifer Shaw, and Sarah Martin. If you've been visiting the CSI gallery, we're sure you've noticed their beautiful work. We're so excited to have these ladies here to provide special inspiration for you this month! Hop over to the Guest Detective forum to learn a little more about them.
And one more exciting surprise for the new month: We have put out a design team call. Be sure to check out the call in the Full Disclosure forum.

Beautiful layout by the guests and the team! Love the case file, it has some of my favorite elements, birds, text, definitions, and the fun hot air balloon. I started my layout on Monday, but have been sick since Tuesday, so I haven't been able to finish it yet.
So sorry you've been sick, Anna-Karin! Hope you're feeling better soon! Just as soon as you've finished, let me know, and I'll add your layout here.
Fantastic work from everyone! Wow! Such a wonderful array of styles. Love seeing how everyone has interpreted this, and looking forward to seeing what our members create this week!
Dearest Anna - Feel better soon! We miss seeing you!
LOVE this weeks challenge and am so looking forward to seeing everyone's creations! Happy Saturday everyone!
