A: This will depend on whether your case is a state or federal case. I am licensed in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals (federal), but not the state of Colorado. Either way there are time and procedural requirements to file your appeal. You should consult an attorney to guide you through the process.

A: First, I am not a Colorado lawyer. That being said, I think your question is "how do I file a notice of appeal." If your case is in State court then, generally, you file a notice of appeal in the trial court. Along with the notice is any fee required to file. And generally, the notice of appeal has to be filed within a certain time frame, 30 days from the final judgment of the trial court is a rule of thumb-- but check your State's appellate rules, or contact the Clerk. After you have filed the notice of appeal, there are several procedural steps after that. If you were represented by an attorney in your case in the trial court, perhaps that attorney could help.
