CSI - 101 - BELIEVE in the magic of Christmas

This is the challenge for this week.  I loved the colours, but found it difficult as we dont have white Christmas's so, I just improvised!

Here is how I solved case 101:

101 - BELIEVE in the magic of Christmas! Scheme - the colours are all there.
Evidence – Frames, Silver accents, Ribbons, Something Shiny, Circles, Christmas Accents & Something transparent.
Testimony – IW:  Peace, Family, Ready.  Journal about the holidays.
“We just love Christmas morning.  Often Jack and I end up waiting for the kids to wake up so we can open all the presents and spend time together as a family.  We were ready and waiting for the kids very early.  Riley was very tired and kept yawning – but the girls were great at keeping the peace and making sure that everyone was happy.  I love the way that instead of a gift opening free for all, the girls hand one gift out to each person and we all watch as they open their goodies.”

CSI - 100 - 9 Months

100 - 9 Months

Here is how I solved case 100:
Scheme - the colours are all there.
Evidence – Stripes, Stars, Glossy Accents, Flags, Frames, Bricks.
Testimony – IW:  Picture, Stay, Light – add a border to the journaling spot

“I really don’t like having my picture taken.  But sometimes you just have to have one to remind you of something special.  When I was 9 months pregnant with Riley, This photo was taken of me and Mitchell.  Hard to believe, but Riley was born the week after it was taken – he was supposed to stay in there for another week, but he decided he was going to come early!  I am so glad that Jack snapped this photo otherwise I might not have a record for Riley of me carrying him.  At the time, I thought I was huge, but looking at this photo, I think I was just right – not too heavy and not too light.”

This was the case file that I was given - I really loved the colour pallette - there is something to be said for simple colour schemes:
