Case File No. 230 - Deadline: May 31, 2017

We've got a groovy new Case File for our May mid-month challenge! 

Don't forget that you still have the whole month for our Major Case File too. 

So, are you ready for the new challenge? Grab you forensics kits, CSI players, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Major Case File No. 230.


We're mixing it up this month with our Case File themes. Did you know that that it's National Transportation Week? With this in mind, our Case File is inspired by this whimsical Scene by British artist Gary Walton.

Remember to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this reveal post for RGB codes, color descriptions, and more detailed explanations of the Evidence and Testimony prompts.

For our Russian players, Detective Anastasia has translated our Case File into Russian:

We're so excited to have ten generous sponsors this month! Our sponsors are among the best in the crafting industry, offering unique and trendy products. CLICK HERE to read more about these generous sponsors and the prizes they're donating.

We are thrilled to have the design team from The Cut Shoppe join us this month as Guest Detectives! We also have a Special Investigator, a talented player here at CSI: Tracy B.

Here's a little bit about Tracey, in her own words:

Hi, I’m Tracey from Melbourne, Australia, and I am a mother, scrapbooker, world traveller, and Detective (in real life!), not necessarily always in that order. I have been scrapping for about 13 years, and my 17-year-old son was my greatest source of inspiration until he became photo phobic about 3 years ago. Now no-one is safe.

As a former fitter & turner familiar with technical drawings, when I first started scrapping I favoured a very graphic style and struggled to even place my photo on an angle. My style has evolved with lots of mixed media being thrown in now. It’s still rare though that my photo is angled!

Be sure to check out Tracey's work on her blog, Plodscrap.


So...are you ready for some serious inspiration? 

Here is how Special Investigator Tracey B creatively solved the Case File:
