Tell Your Story. It's our tagline, and here at CSI, it's one of our missions to get our members to delve deeper into journaling--to document the meaningful bits and pieces that make up our lives. We would like to shine a special spotlight each week on a member who did an exceptional job telling their story.
Sindi's unique design caught our attention in the gallery. We were intrigued by the juxtaposition of the modern graphic elements with the heritage photos. The symbolism of her design became evident when we read her thoughtful reflections on this special photograph.
Each week, five layouts that caught our eye will be chosen to feature as our "Most Wanted." With so many amazing layouts in the gallery, it was incredibly hard to narrow the "lineup" down to five, but here they are, in no particular order. (Please click on the title beneath the layout to take you to the layout in the gallery where you can leave the creators some comments.)
Congratulations, ladies! Gorgeous work! Be sure to find your badges here.
You may have noticed that we have more than 5 Watch List layouts. I included the following in my newsletter, but just in case you didn't read it...
As CSI evolves, we try to think of ways to make our little challenge better and better.
Every week, members of the design team nominate layouts for Star Witness, Most Wanted, and Watch List, and then I tally the results. Often, the votes are very close, and layouts don't make it on the front page by possibly a tally or two, so the wonderful artists of those layouts never get to know they were even in the running.
I thought it would be fun to put on the Watch List all of the layouts that got votes from the design team. There will still only be 5 Most Wanted because the Ning gallery only allows room for 5 featured layouts, so those will still be reserved for the five layouts with the most tallies.
We hope that allowing for more layouts to be highlighted on our front page and in the Under Surveillance archive will be an exciting new change for you!
Because this will take me extra time to add all the html code (unfortunately, I can't just copy and paste the layouts), I have decided to put the badges in the Under Surveillance forum (pinned at the top) rather than send out individual letters to the people who received the badges.
I am so honored to be among this group! Thanks so much for choosing my layout. Aw shucks....
A Gallery FULL of beautiful stand out work! Well done to ALL!
