Baseball Game: A Field Guide {CSI Case File No. 232}

We've got a brand new challenge at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration:

Here's my page. Clues I used to solve this challenge: Evidence - wood background, wood accents, mesh, animals, stitching, starburst shape, labels, vinyl, enamel dots; Testimony - Write a field guide.

Here are some details. My page started with the idea of creating a field guide to document this baseball game we attended when Tracee was visiting two summers ago. I'm not a baseball fan, but my teammate was singing the National Anthem to open the game, so I went to support her. Anyway, a clipboard seemed a perfect element to use for a field guide. I just happened to find this woodgrain paper in almost the perfect shade of blue. The clipboard is a Silhouette cut file. That silver clip is a metallic silver paper. The little cameras were cut out of an Echo Park patterned paper.

The brown letters are vinyl Thickers, which I used for the vinyl clue. The red and blue letters are rub-on letters that I've had in my stash FOREVER.

I found those baseball tickets on an Echo Park paper. How perfect! The starburst stamps are from Heidi Swapp, and I thought they looked like the fireworks that we saw at the game, plus they fulfilled the starburst clue. I think the camera was cut form an Amy Tangerine paper. The wood piece is by Studio Calico.

The baseball and pencil are also Silhouette Cut Files, and the bird, which I used because of the animal clue, is also by Studio Calico.

I hope you'll come by and see what the rest of the team made with this fun Case File, and definitely, you'll want to play along. We've got nine sponsors donating some awesome prizes:

Génial ! What a clever idea to use that clipboard as the journaling block of your layout. The journaling was fun to read too. This layout has your touches all over it even though it looks different from your
usual style. Really interesting take on the challenge. Love it ! TFS.
