Happy Birthday - Guest designer for CSI

Happy New Year to you all, I have you had a wonderful Christmas.
CSI are celebrating their fifth Birthday and Debbi kindly asked previous designers
 to return and join in the fun.
to see what all the talented designers have created to inspire you.
The cat paper is from Crate Paper, Cute Girl, "Sassy, impertinent".
The tiny enamel heart dot is from Prima.
The flower die cuts are by WeR Memory Keepers.
The puffy triangle stickers are from Heidi Swapp.
I used Faber Castell whipped spackle through a Jenni Bowlin stencil for the texture
and a Kaiser craft die for the Happy Birthday title.

The Scene - All five Colours used were used.
The Evidence - I used Triangles, Banner, String, Enamel dots, 
Leaves, Cooking inspired item (cupcake)
The Testimony - Document a Birthday
I chose to scrap these fun pictures about a “Hello Kitty” party.

If you've never played along at CSI, this is the perfect case file to start with.
It comes with a great sketch by Em Stafrace as an added bonus.

I love reading your sweet comments and thank you for taking the time to leave them.
