There's a New Challenge in Town

Do you like scrapbooking challenges? I just love them! Challenges always get my mojo going, and I always love seeing what others create using the very same challenge.

Trish gave me permission to share this exciting news: I just launched my new challenge site, CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, and I hope you'll come check it out. It's a color challenge, but it has some interesting additions to it, one of which focuses on journaling.

One of the things I love about a color challenge is that it really gets me digging through my stash to find just the right colors. I find myself rediscovering papers I forgot I had that I bought long ago and never used. Also, I always have papers and embellishments leftover from the WIP kits because Trish stuffs the kits full of scrappy wonders, so CSI is a perfect opportunity for using up some of those leftovers.

I gave the site a fun "CSI-vibe." Our design team is known as the CSI Detectives, our members are Suspects, our challenges are Case Files to be solved, and our gallery is called Framed.

Our challenges are revealed on Friday, and they run a week from the Sunday following the reveal, which gives players an extra weekend. Here's our current Case File:

And the layout I made (I swear I didn't plan this challenge for these pictures--it was completely serendipitous that I came up with this page):

And here's a top-secret sneak peek of the upcoming challenge, which will be launched tonight:

(Yes, we have an Alice in Wonderland theme running in January, in honor of Lewis Carroll's January 27th birthday.)

I do hope you'll come play. It's such a fun challenge and we have a really friendly bunch over there! We have prizes from monthly sponsors (The Dusty Attic this month), and Trish has promised that WIP will sponsor an upcoming month, so I'm very excited about that! I hope to see you appear at CSI as one of our Prime Suspects!
