Case File No. 240 - Deadline: October 31, 2017

We're back with our mid-month challenge, and we've got a sweet new Case File for you! Don't forget, our first October challenge stays open for the whole month too.

So, are you ready for the new challenge? Grab you forensics kits, CSI players, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Major Case File No. 240.

CASE FILE

We're mixing things up in October with the themes for our Case Files. Did you know that October 15th is National Cake Decorating Day? We found a lovely and delicious Scene by English artist Lynn Horrabin. Our journaling prompts give you lots of options, so don't think you have to scrap a birthday.


Remember to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this reveal post for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more detailed explanations of the Evidence and Testimony prompts.

For our Russian players, Detective Anastasia has translated our Case File into Russian:

GUEST DESIGNERS
We're delighted to have Lisa Moen join us as our Special Investigator this month! Lisa's has been playing with us recently, and her work caught our eye. 


Hello! My name is Lisa Moen and I have been scrapping for 20 years. My husband Greg and I live in central Wisconsin. We have 2 children- Sierra is a sophmore in college and Austin is a senior in high school. These 3 are the subjects of most of my layouts. Besides scrapping, I enjoy camping, reading and spending time with my family. 

I recently starting playing along with the case files here at CSI and enjoy them!

Check out more of Lisa's work on her blog, Lisa's Scrappy Hideaway.

We also have Elena Smoktunova, from Scrapmatts joining us as a Guest Detective.
