Case File No. 244 - Deadline: December 31, 2017

Christmas is ten days away! Are you ready? Make sure you take lots of photos this Christmas season because this Case File is perfect for scrapping your holiday photos.

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. 244.

CASE FILE

It's only natural that we'll be celebrating Christmas with our Case File this month. We've got a delightful vintage Christmas Scene to inspire our challenge. This vintage postcard was found at an Etsy shop called AnAntiqueAffair. Don't celebrate Christmas or have Christmas photos? No worries! The color scheme would be beautiful for photos taken outdoors, and many of our Testimony prompts give you options that will work with any theme.



Digital scrappers can find a free template for the sketch, created just for our players by the Nifty Pixel, here.

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:
