May is National Photography Month. Case File No. 281 celebrates photography with this super-fun Scene found at Sloeginfizz.



The quirky Scene for Case File No. 282 was chosen for our mid-month Case File because May 27 is Hug Your Cat Day. The art on this Case File is by Sara Pulver.


The Scene from our lovely May Cold Case was found at Positively Splendid.


The traditional CSI clues can be found on our Facebook page in the first entry under the album. Just click on the Case File images above. They are also posted at the bottom of this reveal.

Our Guest Detectives from Scrap Accent did an awesome job solving the Case File:







The ScrapRoom designers rocked the Case File too:



How Dee solved the Case: This is my take on the CSI sketch. I did a background stamp with the turquoise. The Shimelle Sparkle City page kit from the ScrapRoom's May Flavors of the month was perfect for these pictures as Vegas being a Sparkle City. This is my granddaughter’s trip for her golden birthday celebration.

The fabulous Tell Us Story design team masterfully solved the Case File:
