What is CSI for me - AFSC June 1st reveal plus case #124 at CSI

We have a new challenge for you at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge:  what is you favorite pastime on your computer. For a very long time I was simply  stumped by this challenge, and didn't really know what am I going to make for this one. Once again our team leader at AFSC, Anne, came with gorgeous ideas, and bingo!, I had an idea - my all time fav challenge site - Color, Stories, Inspiration, aka CSI!! 
The color palette of case file #124 was also very challenging for me - so girly :), so it was a perfect match - a challenging theme with a challenging color combo.
And so I've made a layout about 'what is CSI for me'. I printed CSI's banner, with a little bokeh effect (not well seen on the photo), and gathered supplies in the palette colors, and this is what I came up with:
This is how I solved the case:
Scheme - all 5 colros are here.
Evidence - butterlies, flowers, glitter, wings, stars, plaid pattern, swirls, tiny brads, bokeh photo effect.
Testimony - I wrote 7 facts (fun? sure fun!) about my topic:
1. Anticipating every Friday eve for the new case file reveal.
2. Meeting new on-line friends.
3. A great combo of colors, elemnts and journaling.
4. Makes me think out side of the box, getting out of my comfort zone.
5. Enriches my creativity.
6. A source of inspiration.
7. A warm and friendly community.
I used StudioFourteen40's flair (brights set 6)
Here are some close-ups on the details:

Now it's your turn to show us what is YOUR fav pastime on your computer.
Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate every comment you care to leave me.
