I wanted my page to be equally fun, and I found the perfect pictures of my nephew to go with these colors and the fun vibe of this Case File. I had two different pictures of him, but the other one was a little dark, so I decided to use the same picture, and flip to use on the opposite side.
Clues I used: Evidence: circles, numbers, sun, small patterns, date/calendar accents; Testimony: "Save the Date"
I think I went a little overboard with the background stuff. I used a Prima Template and molding paste. Then I dripped some red ink, followed by a Stampin-Up stamp (the teal dots). The sheer calendar thingy is by Maya Road. I found The red and orange flower brads are by Sassafras Lass.
I put the journaling on transparency film. I probably should've made it black to show up more. I repeated the journaling over and over. Lots of it got covered up, so I'm going to put a copy on the back of the page. Here's what it reads: A perfect snapshot of quirky litttle you. Pokemon Pikachu hoodie. Your Happy Happy Happy t-shirt that describes your sweetness. Thumbs up--another sign of your pure sweetness. Good natured about posing for a camera. This snapshot is so you at this point in time, just about finished with fifth grade. I hope you'll always stay this sweet and adorable and good-natured and quirky. Totally loveable, little guy!
This picture shows all the papers I used: Studio Calico (yellow sripe, orange hexagons); Echo Park: Teal cross-grid); Scenic Route (cut-out stars); Simple Stories (teal chevron). Those stickers are from Lily Bee. I added some washi tape at the last minute. The black circle thing was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
I was looking for some stamps to add more to the background and found these (Studio Calico) little arrows and the sun, which was part of the Evidence.
You must go see what the rest of the team made! Really cool stuff!
