Here are the Case File and clues for this challenge.

I started out with the magic number. I picked a paper cart and went to my 29th folder and found this old Crate Paper collection and then found a picture to match and the layout just evolved as I worked on it. This old Crate Paper collection is one of my all-time favorites, and the colors matched up with the colors from the Case File. I wish some of the scrapbooking companies would do a revival of some of their old papers! Other clues I used were old plain brads, and I fussy cut elements from a paper I wouldn't use in its entirety.
The title came from the caption on my friend's Instagram photo. I used a bunch of old letter stickers: The blue ones are the old Poolside Thickers by American Crafts. The green ones are Webster's Pages. I had to rub some green Distress Ink to get them closer to the colors on my page. And the orange-red ones are old Sassafras Lass alphas.
I needed something in the bottom left, and decided I'd add a little flock of birds cut from one of the Seasons papers. And I love it when I can find phrase stickers to match my story!
