Mystical and CSI

This month we've been sponsoring the CSI Monthly Challenges. Each month the CSI Blog publishes two challenges that anyone can participate in. The inspiration is based off an image known as the scene The CSI team give a number of clues that you can use or you can pull your own image from the scene. Check out the Challenges on the CSI Blog. And then see if you can figure out the clues I used to solve the case with the layout above.

(Supplies used: Cocoa Vanilla: Bohemian Dream, Endless Summer, Boys Rule Clear Stickers, Simple Stories Hello Summer, and Kaisermist: Yellow.)

Birthday Cyber Crop

Welcome to our October Cyber Crop.

October 2008,  I purchased Mystical Scrapbooks.  Over these past 10 years I've seen a lot of changes to our craft, trends come and go.... and then come back again 😊
I seen people come and go, and I’m lucky enough to still know some scrappers from when I started about 20 years ago!
I’ve seen kids grow up via photos and layouts, online friends that I’ve never meet in real life that are still dear to me today.
Facebook has changed many things for us, we closed our on-line forum several years ago now as people moved over to Facebook more and more, and this year we moved our photo gallery over as well.  Facebook being much easier for people to use and comment on layouts.
Design Team members have made this journey possible for me, and I've been so lucky to have had so many great DT members over the years... My deep thanks to them all.
Mystical has been a wonderful journey for me, one that I hope to keep going for another 10 years.

Challenge 1 - Use 10 embellishments only

Paper, card-stock and multi mediums are not included...
Stencils and stamps are counted as 1 no matter how many time you use them.
BUT everything else is counted as single items... ie: 3 rhinestones are counted at 3 items.

Again I've used 2 paper ranges here, Cocoa Vanilla - Love Always and Fancy Pants - Trendsetter 
The flair is from Just Add Flair, and chipboard sprayed with Kaisermist… doesn't show up in the photos, bit it has a gorgeous gimmer to it.

1 stencil,  1 flair and 8 bits of chipboard = 10 embellishments

Challenge 2 - Add a banner and a flourish 

I've used 2 paper ranges here, Cocoa Vanilla - Love Always and Fancy Pants - Trendsetter 
Green Tara flowers, including the Azalea range  and my flourish is embossed chipboard.

Challenge 3 - Tic Tac Toe

(Supplies used: Pebbles Spring Fling Words, Kaiser Mist, Fancy Pants Happy Place Papers and Word Stickers.)

Don't forget: I'm also celebrating this month- it was my birthday on the first and once again I'll be giving away a $20 prize pack picked by me for you to one of the challenge participants this month. (Drawn by a random pick from all the entries in the monthly and cybercrop challenges).
