Wanna see my serious face??

Happy Monday everyone!  Had a fabulous, productive, and sunshiny weekend and although I hate that it had to end, I am thankful the rain held off until today, since I am stuck in my office all day anyway. 

CSI put out their latest case file, Case File No. 69, this past Friday and I had a chance to dig into it a little bit over the weekend, finishing it up this morning.  I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to scrap these pictures of my Mini's flair for the dramatic…and this seemed like the perfect scene to do that with.  There's still a full week to play along, so come over and join us!  Here is the scene:

And here is my interpretation of the file. 

Lots of doodles on this one!  The numbers on the photos are rub-ons, and I cut a strip of lasercut paper to use as a border under the photo.  FINALLY used up the small beach-themed K&Co. frames that had been sitting in my stash for several years, and brought in the good old Dynamo labeler for some of the title work and the pie graph.

For the pie chart, I started with white cardstock and drew a graph on it.  Then I cut out the individual pieces of pie and inked them with the colors in the scheme.  The red and the tan are Colorbox, the light blue is a Colorbox chalk ink, and the navy is Tim Holtz denim distress ink. I wanted the chart to look like a game spinner, so I added some Basic Grey rub-ons in the center, added a small brad, and an arrow from Heidi Swapp.  Threw in some doodles and a leftover word bubble from my March Citrus Twist kit and voila.  Spinner complete.  

 Hope everyone has a fabulous week!
