Here is the page I made. It's another page for Monica's book. If you don't know about Monica, she's my best friend's daughter, and she lost her 23-year-old husband to bone cancer after a long battle since he was diagnosed at 17. I'm grabbing pictures off of their Facebook pages to make a book so she can remember the happy years she spent with James. I was so happy when I found these photos that seem custom-made for this Case File.
Clues I used to solve this case: Evidence: Stripes, labels, something transparent, angles, stuff in a pocket; Testimony: Top 10 List; title from Inspiration Word
The sun wasn't cooperating today, and I had to brighten my background, which was coming out all uneven. The background is textured cardstock. The black border is digitally added.
I used the current sketch at Creative Scrappers as inspiration for my design:
I dusted off some old Heidi Swapp transparent flowers for the transparent element clue in the Case File. The yellow circular bit is from an old American Crafts Backyard paper. The title is also by Heidi Swapp--really old. Her pink stuff matched the Case File really well, and Heidi had a lot of PINK back in the day!
Here's a little pocket I made to tuck some elements in (another piece of Evidence from the Case File). The Top 10 journaling card is in the CSI Coordinates, as are the pink and teal striped papers. I thought I'd leave that blank so Monica can journal some of her favorite memories with James.
I also tucked into the pocket some quotes that pull out of the same pocket. These are really old "Words to Go" from K&Co. Remember them? They came in those Chinese take-out containers. I picked out some quotes that I thought went well with the photos. How awesome to be able to rescue some of these old pink Making Memories clips.
I love the jars from the Neapolitan paper by American Crafts. I added sparkles to the hearts . The little banner flags are also from American Crafts. Those little hearts I trimmed came from an old Dream Street paper and matched the colors exactly. The "Delightful Moment No." is in the CSI Coordinates.
This was a really, really fun Case File! I hope you'll come play for a chance to win an Echo Park collection kit of your choice and just to play for FUN! Also, I'm scouring the gallery looking for future guest designers, aka Special Investigators, so if you haven't been playing regularly, come on in and crack some cases!
Come see what the fantastic Detectives and guest designers made this week. It's always a thrill to see all ladies putting their different styles into the same Case Files and working their magic!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
