Happy to Wander | CSI Case File No. 291 + Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday

We've opened our new Case Files (challenges) at CSI: Color, Stories Inspiration. Here's my layout for the first Case File, which I also create for Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday:

Here is Anna's fantastic layout I scraplifted:

And here are the Case File and Clues:

I used all the colors in The Scheme and the following Evidence clues: floral pattern, stripes, cameras, globes, travel-themed elements, hot-air balloons, clouds, gold elements doily, hearts, brush font lettering, labels, Nuvo drops, glitter. Testimony clues: journal on a label and inspiration word wanderlust (minus the lust).

Here are some details. I combined old and new stash on this page. I rarely use a black background, but my layout was just looking "blah," so I swapped the white background I originally had for black, and it really made the purples stand out. That sweet heart globe is from Bramble Fox.  That "wander" title was made with some really old Scenic Route rub-on letters. 

I used some newer papers from Pinkfresh Studio with some older papers in my stash, including a BasicGrey one.

I've been on a mission to use my stamps, and I happened to have a whole bunch of hot-air balloon stamps I'd never used. The clouds are cut from a Paige Evans paper. I used Nuvo drops for the first time. These are clear with gold glitter, which is why I used them (the glitter clue), plus Nuvo drops were a clue. I don't love the way these look on the black paper, but I'm sure they'd look awesome on white.

I remember when hot-air balloons was a very trendy motif on scrapbook stuff. I think they're pretty and add a touch of fun and whimsy to a page about any kind of adventure.
