Happy Birthday C.S.I.!

Look Who's Turning One!
Welcome to the CSI Birthday Blog Hop. I am proud to say that I am a detective over at CSI. It's a fantastic place to get really creative and make some great scrapbooking pages, using Debbi's fantastic case files.

Here's a note from Debbi, founder of C.S.I:

CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration turned one this month, and we've been celebrating with fun and festivities all month long. But what's a birthday party without presents? We are rounding out CSI's birthday celebration with a huge pile of presents! The talented and very generous CSI design team, aka the CSI Detectives, have prepared special blog posts for you this week, and all you have to do is leave a comment on participating design team members' blogs for a chance to receive a present from them! The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you'll have to receive a gift!

We also have the brand-new company Blue Fern Studios joining our blog hop! Our very own Detective Michele Singh is the designer of this company's beautiful chipboard, and we are delighted to have Blue Fern Studios join us to celebrate our birthday on the month they were introduced to the world!

The CSI Birthday Presents Blog Hop will run from January 25 - 29. Winners will be announced in our Full Disclosure (Announcements) Forum the following week. A newsletter will go out to members once this announcement is posted.
Here is a list of the blogs you will want to visit:

So, how would you like to win some chipboard?
In honor of the big birthday bash, I'm giving away TEN packages of Blue Fern Studios chipboard!  These are all small enough to fit in a regular letter-sized envelope. I will draw ten winners using Here are the designs:
