Case File No. 6 is Live!

We just went live with Case File No. 6 over at CSI!

I decided to work with a sketch so I went in search of sketches and found a sketch I had used back in August, from the Studio Calico blog:

I decided to scraplift myself and created this page.
Clues used:
Evidence - wood, metals, two patterns the same colors
Testimony - Illuminate your subject with the backstory.

I love color challenges because they have me digging through my stash to find the colors. I used a wide assortment of papers on my page--BasicGrey Origns, BasicGrey Offbeat, two different Crate Paper patterns, My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow, Scenic Route (the leaves), and SEI Dill blossom.

Here are some closeups. My story wouldn't fit on one journaling spot, so I decided to use a hinge to attach both to my page so the top page could lift up--plus it served as a metal accent for the Evidence. The hinge, which I bought a while back when they became trendy, is from a hardware store, and the sparkly yellow brads are by Doodlebug. My journaling reads:

It all started on our trip to Maine. We girls ordered lobster; you ordered a gargantuan steak as big as a whole plate. Everyone in the restaurant was astonished when you ate the whole thing. You bragged about it for a long time. And now, whenever you see a mammoth steak on the menu, you have to order it. And we always wind up reminiscing about that time you ate the giant steak in Maine.

These letters for my title (not a very original title, I know) are by Making Memories. They're actually made of wood. And the metal brad is really old, also by Making Memories.

The little printed chipboard circles are by SEI, from the Dill Blossom collection. I just love that line--an oldie but goodie!

I always like to add word stickers to my page because they just add that extra bit to help tell the story. I thought this phrase was a funny one--I put it because Farzad always thinks he can eat that giant steak, and I can imagine that he'll still be trying it when he's an old man!

The design team did an amazing job with these colors. You'll have to go check out what they made, and please play along! You might win a prize form our January sponsor, Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits, or be picked for our Under Surveillance lineup!

Thank you for visiting my blog today and reading about my page! I hope to see you over at CSI!
