Task #13: The Cake Mix Caper

I used Brandy Hackman's tutorial from the university: Chalking around png brush files using the burn tool I think I'll use this technique again and again!

Journaling: Suspect: Michael

Evidence: When I got up this morning, I noticed that Michael’s door was still mostly closed, like it was when we put him to bed last night.

After my shower, I went downstairs and was surprised to see Michael already down there with a large serving spoon and an opened box of cake mix, which he was helping himself to as his breakfast!

Motive: Hunger. He had gotten out of bed, closed his door so it looked like he was still in bed, gone downstairs, used a chair to get into the pantry and get the cake mix (and maybe opened the plastic wrapper by himself), got a spoon, and was eating th ecake mix like it was no big deal.

(as reported by Jeff Thieleke, father of the accused)

Love the layout and the cute story...but my favorite part is how you did the journaling with evidence, motive, etc.! What a clever page and one I may have to borrow for the capers of my youngest. He's into the food snitching, too, and somehow wonders how we always find out!

:rofl: Cheri, too too funny! Great job using several different fonts/alphas; very creative with the journaling; and must go back and visit SGU to check out this technique. Looks like something I need to add to my bag of tricks.

Nice job! Adorable LO making the "crime report"! This is definitely one for the history books! I can almost hear the Law and Order theme in the background!
