Back 2 School - case file no. 138 at CSI

A new case file at CSI, case file #138:
I used a photo of mine, taken on my 3rd year at the University, studing hard for an exam.
I used Sept. sketch from C'est Magnifique:
My clues to solve the case were:
Scheme - all colors are here.
Evidence - woodgrain (one of the pink papers), grid pattern, damask (stamped in brown on the background, so it can hardly be seen, and on the hidden tag in the envelope), envelope, tape measure, a tag, numbers, buttons, triangles, paint and loops.
Testimony - on a tag, tucked inside the brown envelope, and it reads: "At the end of October 2014, I will return to school :), I'm going to start my Master's degree study at the university, more than 20 years after I graduated my Bachelor's degree :).  I'm about to finish my degree in one calendar year. studying is a little tight - twice a week, while I'm still working full time job, and it's far from home. I'm excited and worried at the same time. September 2014".
All papers are from Fancy Pants (mostly from 'Collecting Moments' collection), and so are the envelopes, flair button, stickers, buttons, cork arrow and the clock die-cut. the flowers are Petaloo's. the flourishes chipboards are from Creative Embellishments, and they're one of my most fav chipboards from this manufacturer, so this page goes for their Sept. challenge. I coated the chipboards with gesso, and painted them with TH distress stain and distress ink, and used Stampendous embossing powder. stamps are American Crafts' and Kaisercraft's. I also used TCW stencil and I colored the modeling paste with LGS magical.
Here are some close-ups on the details:






Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much :).
