My Sweet Baby

Last week we were on our Passover holiday, and traveld a lot, so I didn't have the time to make a lo as a DT for the current case file at CSI, but I still loved the palette very much, so I decided to make a lo for this case file. I used my April counterfeit kit. I used some gorgeous chipboard by Wycinanka.
I used April's sketch from PageMaps:
How I solved the case? here are my clues:
Scheme - used all 5 colors.
Evidence - tags, frames, metal (the flair buttons), labels.
Testimony - hidden journaling on a tag, behind the pp on the left side, and it says: "On Passover 2006 you still didn't walk and when I put you on the blanket at the seaside, you started crawling all around. But when you reached the end of the blanket and touched the sand, you backed and returned to the safe boundaries of the blanket. Years after, we discovered that you have SPD and hence your recoiling from the sand. With time passing, you no longer withdraw from the sand, the opposite - you just love to play with the it and to dig in."
I would like to enter this lo also for the current challenge at Scrap Africa, which is 'distressing with a difference'. the twist is to use household items for the distressing. what a fun challenge!
 I used coffee to distress the edges of the background paper, and after it was dry, I slightly distressed it with a smoothing foot file :). I really loved this challenge, as it made me use techniques I no longer use, so big Thank You, Scrap Africa!
Here are a few close-ups on the details:
