Canoe Adventure: CSI Case File 234

Summer lake scrapbooking layout in orange, blue, and yellow featuring fish, chevrons, glimmer mist, ball jar, and glossy accents


It's time to share my Design Team project for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, case file #234! The mid-month challenge for July is full of bright colors and fun inspiration celebrating summer getaways (but you don't have to scrap that theme if you have something else in mind, just be sure to use the colors, evidence, and testimony from the case file).



If you haven't joined in on the fun yet, I invite you to come over and play! I'll give a quick run down of the rules for those of you who are new to the CSI challenges, or to scrapbooking challenges in general.

Disclaimer [in small print]: Scrapbooking challenges can be addictive. Proceed with extreme caution!

The scene is the inspiration for the case file, which contains a color scheme, clues, and testimony. To complete the challenge, use all five colors, choose THREE of the clues for your layout, and choose one of the journaling prompts (testimony).

Here's a link to the Law and Order page (rules) for the rest of the details.

I fussy cut the fish from a paper I've had in my stash for years, and added "bubbles" by using Glossy Accents

My testimony was about a summer trip we took, canoeing down the Black River in Wisconsin (and how we had a family of snakes join us in one of the canoes!). I always refer to my dad as the adventurer because no matter what he did, it always turned into an adventure, so Heidi Swapp's wood die cut "Adventure" was the perfect title.

I fussy cut the jar from BoBunny's Butterfly Kisses paper.

I hope you get a chance to join in on this challenge (and have the chance to win some fabulous prizes!). Head on over to the CSI blog and check out the rest of the Design Team's projects, then get out your paper and scissors!

  2. Love how you nailed the vivid colours of the challenge. The page design is fabulous. I love the strips of torn papers. The fish, the flowers, and the bubbles add fun elements to the page. Don't you love it when you finally get to use something that's been in your stash forever ! Great job. TFS. ☺
