Guess What.....I am a CSI Special Investigator.

Keeping this to myself  has been so, so hard.
Finally,  I can share with you my Happy and Exciting news.
YAY!!!!!
I am honoured and thrilled to be a
 "Special Investigator"over at CSI for the month of October.
A Big Thank You to Debbi Tehrani for inviting me to join the amazing list of  CSI Special Investigators.
CSI is an incredibly well organized and run challenge. If you haven't had a look, do yourself a favour and check it out, I'm sure you will love it.
Today I will share my first layout as a Special Investigator.
This is the case that needs to be solved

and this is my layout.
{sweet}

The Scheme...all 5 colours used, .only a hint of the blue though, but if you look closely its there.
Evidence...pearls, book pages, hearts, ribbon, handmade flower (Thanks to the lovely Mary Bennetts for this               beautiful flower), lace, distressing, stack elements (Hearts), and Rhinestones.
Testimony...Tuck your journaling between layers so that some of it shows.



Lots of close ups 
If you have time and need some inspiration to get scrapping then have a look at the weekly challenges. 
It would be great to see you join in and have some fun.
************************
I am actually pinching myself at the moment. 
Thanks to my Beautiful Mum.... she is the one who encouraged me to start scrapping
and honestly I cannot believe where I am at, at this moment.
(when I first started scrapping I was afraid to even tear a piece of paper).
Having my own blog and sharing my work was not something
 I ever thought I would have the courage to do.
I love my blog,  I love joining in challenges and sharing.
Thanks so much to my amazing group of friends for your encouragement,
support and help in getting that up and running.
I never ever thought I would have my layouts published in magazines,
(thanks again to my friends for all your encouragement and help)
 or be A Guest Designer, (Thanks Sandra), and from there join Design Teams.
I really appreciate all my beautiful online friends too
 who always pop in and leave me such wonderful comments.
I love reading each and every one and they brighten my day.
If you are reading this then you are one of them...Thank You. xx
***************************************
I have some more VERY exciting thing I am busting to share.
Who would have thought...certainly not me.

Have a wonderful day.
Janice xx
