Our inspiring Guest Detectives from 2Crafty solved the Case like this:
How Hetty solved the Case File: I tried to stay true to the case and incorporated a lot of the elements from the evidence and testimony. So I managed to use the yellow, turquoise, red and black on the white background, documented about summer and used the inspiration words. From the evidence I added some washi tape, transparent element, metal, string/twine, tags, numbers, wet medium and with that circles, triangles, dots, check/grid and stripes. This was such a great challenge and I had a lot of fun putting it together it also made me think outside the box and I ended up using a few items from my stash.
How Amanda-Jayne solved the Case File: I was particularly inspired by the colors and circles within the image, as well as the sense of adventure!
Our inspiring Guest Detectives from 2Crafty solved the Case like this:
How Tammy solved the Case File: I love the colours and also created a Summer story for it.I used the Summer Writing Prompt for my journaling which includes what Summer looks like to me. I also wrote a little about what Summer smells like too. From the list I used the following: solid white background, stripes, check/grid, circles, wet medium - paint, thread.
Our Guest Detectives from the Cocoa Vanilla Design Team brilliantly solved the Case File:
How Anna solved the Case File: I was much inspired by the camper as we spend our every summer vacation on the camping. I took the pictures taken during one of our trips and created a travel page. I tried to stick to the color palette and added my journaling in the window of the geotag.
How Tarrah solved the Case File: I was inspired by the colours and the Summer theme.

Our Guest Detectives from the Scrapmatt's design team rocked the Case File:
Here is how the CSI Detectives have expertly cracked the case. You can read more about how the Case File inspired them on their blogs (links on sidebar).
How Debbi solved the Case File: I used the color scheme and many of the traditional Evidence clues, including solid white background, stripes, grid, dots, triangles, circles, tags, twine, animals, bunting, cacti. I wanted to have the playful, graphic vibe of the Scene on my layout.
How Wendy solved the Case File: I decided to go with the white background and play with some new stamps. After much contemplating over what photos I decided to go with these as they are true to what we do in summer. It only happens once each season due to the long distances! I kept the colour scheme to the palette!
How Annie solved the Case File: I followed the traditional clues again for this Case File - all of the colours are there, with some pink and dark blue thrown in. From the Evidence list, I used scallops, bunting, dots, stripes, triangles, stars, washi tape. My journaling is written along the bottom, it's documenting a happy summer memory.
How Carina solved the Case File: The fun picture got me thinking about when our kids were younger and we used to own a caravan that we went on vacation with in the summers. The photos are from one fantastic summer we had on the Swedish west coast back in the early 00'ies filled with beach time and fun little outings.
How Ginger solved the Case File: I used all 5 colors, and chose 4 evidences plus I used something about summer! Here i am using photos of my grandson Colby playing baseball which he really loves!
How Lisa-Marie solved the Case File: Such a fabulously bright and sunny palette to work with! I wanted the overall appearance of my layout to look a little like the camper, so I used a circle as the bottom most layer under my photo; I used a solid white background to make it all pop! I selected paper that has polka dots and a check design to echo those prints on the image and I also added a little camp chair just to bring the whole summery aspect of this challenge together.
How Laura solved the Case File: The colors screamed Disney and the camper speaks of family trips, so I used photos from our family trip to Disney. I do have dots, stars, tags, twine, and washi.
How Natsuko solved the Case File: I was inspired by the curtain and drops of water. It was fun making the curtain, and I love how dimentional it turned out!
How Patty solved the Case File: I was inspired by the colors and the writing format. I chose, "Write a dozen things about your topic." The photo was taken May 25th, on our 44th anniversary. I actually wrote 17 reasons why I'm sweet on my husband.
