From the evidence column, I opted to include circles, a clock, wet mediums, and something that flies. From the testimony column, I went with journaling in a circular shape.

Journey – Case File No. 160 CSI Color Stories Inspiration and Creative Embellishments

I’m up on the Creative EmbellishmentsĀ blog today sharing how I cracked the CSI Color Stories Inspiration Case File No 160. CE is one of the CSI sponsors this month! šŸ˜€ After taking a really long break from crafting, it was really fun to get my hands dirty and get a little grungy with this one. Sketch challenges have always been a fave of mine and I’m always especially challenged by color challenges, so this was a great way for me to get my feet wet again. šŸ˜€ I went with this pic of Larry and Alex at the best 2 years ago. Yes…I am STILL scrapping those pics. lol Anyway, here’s what I came up with:


Here’s the case info:
