CSI Case File No. 228

Here comes CSI Case File No. 228. Great palette, and fun to solve.

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.

Here is my take on the second case file of April.


Evidence: chevrons, branches/flowers, silver metal, jars, puffy stickers
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.

CSI Case File No. 227


Loved the colours on this case file, and made two layouts:-)

Title: Please!
Evidence: Animals, flower, triangles, circular elements
Testimony: Journal about pets

Unfortunately because of allergy we can not have a furry pet. But every time we visit my sister, my daughter grabs the opportunity to cuddle the house cat Luna. 

Title: I want to stand behind you when she comes out
 Evidence: flowers, circular elements, watercolour, animal, metal, frames
Testimony: Put your story in a frame

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.

CSI Case File No. 225

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!

Project Life February

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:-)

CSI Case File No. 224: Villsauposen

Loved the colors on this case file from CSI:-)
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

CSI Major Case File No. 223: Sweet lunch

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;-)

CSI Case File No. 222: Ice Skating

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:-)
