Here are the Case File and Clues.
I used most of the clues, wood background, animal print (the stencil reminded me of an animal print), pattern with illustrated objects (the cameras), animals, metal, glasses, cameras, clock, a phone, book pages, Polaroid frame (by one of our sponsors 2Crafty--they also made the film strip), texture paste, plastic (the letters), buckle, something glossy, jewels, and buttons. So that's everything except the food-themed items.
Here are some details. I started with the gray woodgrain background.I looked for some animal print paper and found a tiger stripe but I couldn't make it work, and then I thought of a stencil I have that reminds me of leopard spots, so I used that. I really wanted to use a fox because I have a bunch in my stash, but when I saw these cat stickers in my stash, and one had sunglasses and they both had yellow on them, I changed my mind. My papers are almost all scraps, except the woodgrain and the camera paper.
The chipboard pieces are from 2Crafty, from when I was on their designteam. I scoured my stash in search of a telephone, which was a clue, and I found a stamp. I added that heart that I know looks red but it's really orange. I always add a heart to the layouts I make for people. I decided to add the twine to my buckle, both clues. That buckle has probably been in my stash for 15 years. I always admire the way Julie Taylor often extends her twine to the end of the page, so I thought I'd give that a try. I added a tiny white tassel from my stash.
I always love the opportunity to use buttons, as I have way more than I will probably use in a lifetime. I still have a ton of those tranparent Maya Road clocks, so I was happy to use one for this page as a clue.
