1st Harvest {CSI Case File No. 203}

We have a fun new Case File open for investigation at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

Here's the page I made:

Clues I used...Evidence: all of the clues; Testimony: childhood memory, 6-word memoir, Scene inspiration.

I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers:

Here are some details. I used all kinds of old papers on my page, including Ki Memories (blue) and Chatterbox (yellow). The orange polka dot is K&Co. The yellow in the background is Echo Park. I cut the little house and the leaves from some We R Memory Keepers papers. I was determined to use all the clues, and I was stuck on how to fit a transportation element into my page, and then I remembered I had a sticker with a tractor! That chipboard frame is by Crate Paper.

I've had this Cosmo Cricket watering can forever. I was happy the colors worked out for my page. I added a puffy heart to it. The little wood veneer bird is by Studio Calico.

Here's another fun puffy sticker, and he's holding a vegetable--also a clue for the Case File. That little speech bubble was cut out of a patterned paper, and I added rub-on letters for part of my title.

That wood-veneer star-shape reminded me of a sun. The little garden spade is from that same Cosmo Cricket chipboard sheet as the watering can, and I was able to get a string onto the handle for another clue.

This was a really fun Case File to play with. I hope you'll play along. We've got ten awesome sponsors donating prizes this month:
