C.S.I - Case File # 15

I've got another layout up over on the C.S.I - Color, Stories & Inspiration blog as a Guest Detective:

and here is this weeks case file,  CASE FILE # 15:
This weeks "scheme" (color palette) of black, medium gray, light yellow, medium orange and white was interesting to play with and not have it look like it was a halloween page ;) Since the "scene" was a photo from Where the Wild Things Are, I went with a book theme. For my "testimony" (journaling) I used the "once upon a time" prompt, for the "evidence" (layout elements) I chose book pages for my background patterned paper, and for my something transparent, I tucked the the library card into a clear pocket.  I added in the cute chipboard piece with the boy reading, and the #6 since Tucker is in 6th grade.  This boy loves to read so it was a perfect layout for his school album!

Be sure to stop by the C.S.I website to see all the other great inspiration layouts. Case File #15 is open through April 22, so you have plenty of time to play along!!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

I LOVE layouts about reading and this one is adorable! I like the colors and agree that you were very sucessfully at not having these colors turn out Halloweenish. I admire that you can make color challeges work - I am never successful at it!
