CSI Case File No 263: Pumpkin Carving


I love fall colours, and because we carve pumpkins every year, I have lots of photos to match the color scheme. I therfore made two layouts inspired by the scene, and chose to document something about autumn in 2005 and 2006. The clues that I used are: leaves, apple, pumpkins (are they fruit?) numbers, animal (fox), something woven and lace on the tags.

Look at this awesome scene and be inspired by the design team and  CSI Case File No 263 over at the CSI challenge blog.  I loved it:-)


Deadline: October 31st.

CSI Case File No. 262: Butterfly Waltz by Brian Crain

The second case file of this month over at CSI is perfect if you want to make a page about your pet. If you don´t have one, you could always go for one of the other options in "testimony", or just be inspired by colours or "the scene". Here it is:

My DT page is about a Saturday in August, when my teenagers played a lovely piece called Butterfly Waltz on piano and soprano saxophone in church for their older brother at his wedding day. I picked the word "happy" from the testimony, and used the following clues: stripes, brads, dots, insects/butterflies, leaves, flower, rhinestones swirl, hearts and music-themes elements.

CSI Case File No. 261: Dance Explosion

While I was relaxing on holiday, my daughter and her friend went to summer classes in ballet, hiphop and modern dances. So for testimony I chose to document this. On the photo we are in the centre of Oslo, looking for the dance school. The evidence I used was solid white background, clip, diagonal stripes and a number.
I really loved the colour combination of the challenge, and intended to use all of them, but it became a challenge with my limited holiday kit:-)

You can find the challenge here:-)
It lasts all month and closes on the 30th of September.

Case File No. 260: Cute

 Inspired by the girls and their floral dresses in this challenge, I made a page of our Sweedish summer girl Edith. She was so cute in her mum’s t-shirt and sun hat walking from the beach. 
For evidence I used solid white background, floral pattern, stripes, people embellishment, travel-themed elements, flowers, watercolour, ribbon and twine.

Case File No. 260 is found here:-)

Case File No 259: Surfing in Sweden

The first August case file from CSI has a colour combination that I just love. Perfect for my surfing page, which I made on holiday with only a few tools;-). Here is the challenge:

And here is my layout. 

For testimony I chose to document our children trying some kind of surfing on holiday in Sweden. The evidence are solid white background, architectural elements, transportation stickers and triangles.

While on vacation, I planned to do some scrapping, and packed a few necessities that unfortunately was forgotten in my husband´s car as he was heading home before me. I then "had to" buy a few new supplies, and one of my new favourite things is this alphabet maker from We R Memory keepers. I used it on all the three layouts I made.

CSI Case File No. 254: Bedtime

A new challenge is up at CSI! Have a look at this inspiring case file:

My DT page is inspired by the colours, and also the list of evidence that you can find at the bottom of the challenge page here. The evidence on this page is flowers, label, bling and gold glitter.

My layout is about a very common situation in my sister´s house. Someone really loves Peppa Pig:-)

CSI Case File No. 252

In this challenge I was inspired by the scene; the stripes on the bedspread and the suitcases under the bed that made me think of travelling. From the list of evidence I chose: stripes, dots, circles, washi tape and puffy stickers.

Because I loved the colours so much, I made another page:-). 
From the evidence list I picked circle, clouds and triangles.

Here is a link to the challenge:

CSI Case File No. 249: Write about your name

Første utfordring frå CSI i mars. Eg valte å løysa oppgåva på den tradisjonelle måten, ved hjelp av stikkord og forslag til tema. Det finn du nedst på CSI si side her. Eitt av tema var å skriva om namnet sitt. Eg syntest det passa fint å skriva historia bak sonen vår sitt namn. Det er sjeldan eg skriv direkte på sida, men mange seier det er noko eg kjem til å bli glad for seinare:-)
Det er mange sponsorar denne månaden, og flotte premiar å vinna. I tillegg er utfordringane svært inspirerande:-).


I chose the traditional way of solving this case file, telling the story behind my son´s name. Vetle means "born in winter" or "a cub". In some places in Norway it also means "little". As we wanted to name our son after my father Malvin, we thought it would be nice with a "little Malvin" in the family, in addition to (big) Malvin. Vetle Malvin soon grew up to look alot like his grandfather, and we were pleased by our choice. Now, being almost 2 meters tall, his name is quite ironic, and most people think it´s very funny.
For evidence I used wood, banners, woodland animals, triangles/trees, arrows and twigs.


Mitt DT-bidrag:-)

CSI Case Files Nos 247 and 248

I want to share with you my two latest pages made for CSI. The first challenge is telling the story of happy little girl playing in the sand on the beach in Spain. The colours were perfect for the photo I found.

The second layout I made after being inspired by nature in "the scene". I had a cute photo of my daughter painting a potato plant. She had learned about potato plants at school, and wanted to show us how they looked. 

These case files are great fun, and the colour scheme amazing. Have a try, and win great prizes:-)
Have a nice day!

CSI Case File No 246: Baby Bunny

Endringar i CSI frå 2018 av! 
No kan du køyra freestyle, og ikkje lenger vera bunden av dei tradisjonelle fargane og "spora" som er foreslått. Det er nok å laga ei side basert på inspirasjon av biletet/scena, og skriva litt om kva som inspirerte deg. 

Du kan sjølvsagt halda fram som før, også, og løysa oppgåva på den gamle måten. Det viktigaste er at du får lyst til å scrappa og ta vare på minne som er viktig for DEG. 

Flotte premiar er det kvar månad. Lukke til:-)

Mitt forslag til løysing:

Eg vart mest inspirert av scena, og haren fekk meg til å tenkja på nokre bilete eg hadde liggjande av dotter mi i ein jakke med kaninøyre. Eg likte godt fargane som høyrde til, og valde å bruka dei på tradisjonelt vis. Eg treng nok litt tid på å køyra freestyle sjølv, og måtte støtta meg på foreslåtte spor nedst på CSI si førsteside;-)
