And here's what I made with it :
Recently, my Mom, sister and I all flew to Halifax, Nova Scotia from Toronto, Ontario together to visit my brother and his family and do some tourist-y stuff while we were there. This photo was taken while we were waiting to taxi onto the runway in Toronto.
Here's how I solved this Case:
All the colours are there.
Watercolour (in my bckground stamping)
Mixing black and white with colourful patterns.
The TOPIC clue "Document a trip you’ve had or one you dream of" inspired this page.
The journaling pulls out from under the photo with the little tab that says "Adventure" on it.
here we are waiting for the plane to leave toronto for halifax at the start of a memorable trip together, which of course was documented with the obligatory selfie by monica.

Case #293 COLD CASE Freestyle Prompts :
And the Traditional Case File and Clues :
This stash-busting Cold Case features a whimsical Scene by French illustrator Veronique Petit.
Here's a few Product Clues to help get you started :
Find older papers that match some of the colors in The Scene.
Use older papers that have a number or text pattern.
Use older stickers.
Use never or rarely used stamps.
Use leftover numbers from your alphas.
Find some older “cute” stuff in your stash.
Use some old birthday-themed items.
Use some of your old or rarely used punches or dies.
Use a corner rounder.
Use those cut-apart cards that you haven’t cut into yet.
Magic number is 9—grab the 9th paper or embellishment pack (or something else) in your stash and start there.
Got any old products by Ki Memories? Use them!
And some Design Clues to help you create :
Create your layout using a grid design.
Use cut-apart cards (you know, the ones that are on a sheet of patterned paper)—use some whole and cut elements off of others.
Use number(s) as a major design element.
Add googly eyes to your title or numbers
Add small words to arrows and other elements on your page.
And here's what I created :
The grid style of the image inspred me, and the numbers made me think about birthdays this time. So I made this page to celebrate my son's 19th birthday, using my favorite photos of him throughout the years. Each wooden number represents his age at the time of the photo.
I chose to use blue, yellow, red and brown as my main colours. Some of the papers here have been in my stash for at least 5+ years! There's some old Jillibean Soup, Basic Grey & MME there.
I used the following Product clues to help me along :
Paper with a number pattern
Leftover numbers (old bingo wooden numbers)
I used a corner rounder
I made 9 squares (ok, 8 squares and a rectangle...)
And from the Design clues I was inspired by the following :
Use a grid design
Use numbers as a major design element
Add small words and the idea of arrows.
Inspired by the #4 throwing the confetti (which was also happened to be the name of my blue patterned paper!!), I made some watercolour sprinkles behind all the photos on the page.
