The Problem with Hello {CSI Case File No. 259}

Our latest challenge at CSI went live a couple of days ago. Here's my page:

Here's our Case File. As usual, I use the traditional clues because, since I make up the clues, that's sort of how I interpret The Scene in the Case File. If you're new to the challenge, just scroll to the bottom of the reveal to find those  clues. I used as many of the clues as possible. I obviously used the color scheme. Evidence clues I used include a text pattern, patterned paper with a hand-drawn look, speech bubbles, architectural elements, transportation, travel-themed elements, trees, cursive font, triangles, and stamping. Testimony clues include documenting a trip and putting my journaling in a speech bubble.

Here are some details. I used a whole bunch of odds and ends on this page, some very old. That one of the things I love about our challenge is that it has me digging through my stash. For example, that blue text paper is really old Scenic Route paper, as are a couple of layers behind the photo. Those colors in the Case File immediately called to mind Scenic Route's Metropolis. The globe is a cut file from the Silhouette store. The flair badge is from A Flair for Buttons. The little houses are cut from a Dear Lizzy paper. That cool metal airplane is by EK Success. I snagged that for cheap at Tuesday Morning last summer.

The speech bubble is a stamp. That xoxo stamp is super duper old, a Pebbles sticker. I think I cut the little black camera out of an Amy Tangerine paper.

I hope you'll come play with us, and be sure to go check out the reveal. Some AMAZING stuff from the design team. We've got 13 sponsors donating prizes this month, so make sure you play!

Another fabulous page Debbi, I love that title and the way you've made it up with several different fonts, and the perfect assortment of little knick-knacks for embellishment. It's one of the things I love about CSI Case Files as well, how they get me rummaging through my drawers! :o)xxx

Great take on the challenge, Debbi. My eye is drawn to the title work. I love the placement of the letter stickers, how the "M", the airplane, and the speech bubble, overlap the large "hello". I also love how the title turns into the journaling for the layout. So well done. TFS. ♥

Debbi - I love how your long title/journaling work makes your eye "sweep" across the page. This case definitely has a travel feel to it, but your page isn't really "travel" themed. I love that you've interpreted this image that way & that idea will be used by me as inspiration for future Cases. X
