When I saw the title piece from the Craft Happy set in my Bramble Fox box last month, I knew I wanted to use it for Case File No. 307 for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, since we're celebrating our 8th birthday this month. Here are the Case File and clues:

I was in love with that badger and all of the drawings by Rebecca Jones, so I decided I'd use them on my layout to commemorate the 8th birthday and the whole detective theme of CSI, so I used a lot of the clue, which were drawn from the Scene.
How awesome is that Bramble Fox title piece? I just love how they use different fonts in their titles. I cut the inside out of that little magnifying glass the badger is holding and added vellum in place of where the glass would be.
For the life of me, I couldn't get that vellum for the inside of the magnifying glass cut file to lay flat. when I posted it in the design team page, Nina Straume said she liked my partially hidden journaling. I hadn't planned it to be like that, but in retrospect, I think it's kind of cool that it's partially obscured--kinda adds to the "mystery" theme. I love happy accidents like that! That little star is a Bramble Fox Perspextive too.
I added my photo to the CSI preview image and layered up some papers and other elements and added the current Case File number.
I have a die cut that has a whole bunch of elements inside of the spiral notebook die, one of which is the little chevron arrows. They were sitting on my desk, and that made me think of the Bramble Fox Arrows V2 set that I had and I glued the red die-cut arrows on top of the white Perspextives.
This layout is going in my album I call "The Pursuit of Scrappiness." This Bramble Fox Perspextive is the perfect piece for documenting this wonderful hobby of ours!
If you haven't ever used Perspextives, they're so much fun to work with. The Fox Box is an awesome way to try them out. You get a couple of sets, plus some exclusives, and by subscribing, you get a 15% discount on other orders.
