CSI has another great sketch and challenge running the whole of August. It´s always fun to look for clues to solve these cases. The evidence on my layout this time is solid white background, flowers, eyeglasses, puffy stickers and wet medium. For testimony I chose the topic girlfriends.
A couple of years ago I went to Barcelona with six friends of mine. Every second year we travel to a new place together. Up till now we have been to Bergen, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Riga, Rome, Warszawa and Barcelona. These girls are always fun to spend some days with:-)
This case file suggests to document a summer getaway, and I had plenty of photos from different vacations to choose from. The photo I picked here show the joy of my son on the playground close to a house we rented in Denmark. It was freezing cold outside and very windy the whole time we were there. Still, the kids loved it, and never noticed that we had to buy them warmer clothes.
You can join this challenge up till the 31. of July.
Testimony: Document a summer getaway
Evidence: Triangles, scallops, sun and stamps
Dersom du har bilde frå camping eller turar i skog og mark, vil dei passa perfekt til denne utfordringa hos CSI:-)
Mi side handlar om bursdagsfeiring ute i ein lavvo. Sjølv om det var midt i februar, koste ungane seg utandørs, og jenta mi ville absolutt pynta seg med skjørt, og det utanpå regnbuksa:-)
Photos from camping and field trips are perfect for this CSI challenge. My page tells the story of birthday celebration outdoors by a lavvu. Even though this was in cold February, the kids enjoyed themselves running around playing and exploring the surroundings. My daughter of course wanted to dress up in a skirt (on top of her rain gear;-)
Evidence: wood background/accents, animals, trees and stitching
Av og til treng ein eit bursdagskort i ein fei. Vanlegvis lagar eg berre eitt om gongen, men for eit par veker sidan hadde eg plutseleg bruk for tre. Dei vart ganske like, men det er ok då bursdags"barna" bur i tre ulike land;-)
Folkevognbussen er av merket Sizzix, og kjem frå Livs synytt på Stord. Dei ferdigbretta korta med konvolutt i craft kjem også frå denne butikken. Kjempekjekke å ha på lur:-)
Sprelske fargar i denne månadens utfordring frå CSI:-)
I solved this month´s major case by using the following evidence:
white background, stripes, animal, eyeglasses, googly eyes, speech bubbles and stars
The testimony chosen is "journal in a speech bubble" and inspiration word "super".
Visiting Hollywood quite a few years ago, we met lots of familiar characters by "the walk of fame". My son, five at the time, recognized some of them, but were quite reluctant to posing with "Superman", as he was certain this was not the right one:-D.
Did your know CSI was looking for new members for their design team? If you are interested, take a look here. It´s such fun creating layouts based on these exciting case files, and the team members are so talented, creative and supportive.
Testimony: journal about your husband and inspiration words home and comfort
This page is about the many times our daughter woke up in the evening smelling her dad´s late night cooking. She used to get up, tip-toeing into the living room nicely asking for a bite. She never got a no from my husband. He loved sharing his food with her. Even after bedtime.
Some years ago we went to visit the Norwegian royal castle. My three year old was sure she would meet the royal family, and as we were approaching the entrance, she said anxiously: "I want to stand behind you when she comes out." I asked her who she meant, and she answered: "The queen." She was so sweet and serious, and I had to break it gently to her that maybe the queen was busy today and not able to meet us.
Den 1. i kvar månad er det flott skisseutfordring hos CSI.
Eg held på med siste innspurt i å få ferdig dottera vår sine album, og berre måtte ha med denne historia. Litt makaber, men eg vel å sjå humoren i den;-)
Lås inn salmiakkflaskene dykkar, folkens!
The first of each month CSI has a great challenge including a sketch.
I am trying to finish my daughter´s photo albums before her confirmation in May, and just had to include this story:
When my daughter was little, I warned her about the detergents in the kitchen cupboard. One day she answered the door, I heard her say on top of her voice: I know how we can become angels! Come and see! We just drink this!!
No need to say those bottles were soon locked away in a safe place!
Hiv meg med i siste liten på februarutfordringa i Project Life i Norge. Denne gongen vart eg inspirert av både tekst, naturbiletet og fargane. Mi side handlar om ein ettermiddag me tok med alle fotoapparata våre på hausttur. Mange flotte fargar ute, så det var ikkje vanskeleg å finna gode motiv. Ei kjekk stund for heile familien:-)
I am joining the February challenge in Project Life Norway. Inspired by the colours, the text and the nature, I made a page about a photoshoot with my family an autumn afternoon a couple of years ago. We had great fun:-)
My page tells the story of a baby sleeping bag made of sheepskin from Norwegian wild sheep. It´s really warm og and cosy, and was given to my first child in year 2000 by my parents. Later it was handed down to my second child, then my three nephews and last year my niece. A very useful gift to our children from their grandparents.
Evidence: clouds, die cuts, triangles, people icons, the alphabet as a design element
Testimony: Choose an item in the Scene as a jumping off point
A fun, new case file is launched at CSI today. Pop over and have a look at all the gorgeous inspiration from the design team and guest designers:-)
This is how I solved the case.
Evidence: stripes, trees, food, sth curly/loopy
Testimony: Journal about a meal (, if you can call this a meal?)
Some years ago we went to Madam Tussaud, and suddenly I discovered that my husband had bought marshmallow sticks with chocolate on top for the kids. Oh my! The sticky mess! Why on earth would they sell something like that in a wax museum?!
It all went well, though, and the kids reeeeaaallly enjoyed it;-)
Evidence to solve the CSI case file this time: chevrons, stars, jewels, decorative border, stamps and people icons
Testimony: Document something about winter
A wintery scene from the ice rink some years ago. We skate so seldom it´s like learning it all over again each time we go. Usually the rink on our island is prepared for the Christmas holidays, and unless it´s raining, we go at least once. We tear the kids (and adults) away from the screens, and although there are protests in the beginning, they (we) are very happy on the ice. Last year we practiced skating backwards, and even remembered how to do it this year. Great fun:-)
