MJ Live {CSI Case File No. 116}

We have a rockin' Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration this week!

I'm finally getting around to scrapping a picture from my 50th birthday. All the pictures were taken with iPhones at my party, and I am not at all happy with the way I looked. Sigh.

Farzad had a surprise party for me and hired a Michael Jackson impersonator. So fun! Anyhow, here's my page. Clues I used...Evidence: music elements, monogram, circles, metal, buttons, labels, silhouette, electricity, solid black background. Testimony: journal on several journaling spots.

Here are a few details: Papers I used are We R Memory Keepers (green triangles); Simple Stories (stripes, grid behind picture); Echo Park (viewmaster), Pebbles (gray stripe). The music paper is something I found online and printed on cardstock. The wood pieces are all by Studio Calico. Enamel dots are by My Mind's Eye. Those little chevron metal dots are by Cloud 9. The tickets are by My Mind's Eye.

I cut the title (both the MJ and the Live) with my Silhouette Cameo. I used a Stencil by The Crafter's Workshop and some pastel chalks for the red circles. I rescued some very old Fontwerks labels for my journaling spots. That red label under the MJ is also really old, by Creative Cafe.

The white stuff in the background is a Kaiser Craft stamp which I stamped repeatedly with embossing ink and used white embossing powder. I've been on a mission lately to use up some of the gazillion buttons I have.

This was a super-fun Case File to work with. If you haven't had a chance to play this month, you'll definitely want to give this one a try--you have until Sunday midnight for a chance to win a voucher to A Piece of Cake Designs to buy some of the sweet scrappy goods below:

The detail on your pages always blows me away, my friend! My gosh, this is stunning! LOVE the background with the big stitched circle, the embossing and the stenciling. And all those tiny cut out triangles! Wow! LOVE all the paper layers. The mix of buttons and candy/metal dots is really fabulous, too!
