Happy Adventure | CSI

Hi guys,

It’s National Transport Week (in the USA) and CSI: Color Stories Inspiration has a beautiful pastel case based on that.

Fortunately, we went on a lovely long road trip in mid-April and I have loads of pictures from said trip that I still want to scrap (almost 2 000 were taken!!) – so this challenge worked out PERFECTLY for me to solve!

Here is the SPLO I created for this challenge:

Scheme : all there

Evidence : flowers, butterfly, flair badge

Testimony : journal about a road trip

One of the many highlights of our April 2017 road trip, was that we got to travel on roads that most people could not get to; you’d need a proper 4×4 vehicle for most of the places we went!  Once such place was at the top of a mountain in the Karoo, which overlooked the MOST stunning vista.  A flat pan.  A small random mountain slap bang in the middle of the flat pan.  Magnificent cloud formations and the shadows they cast on the plain in front of us.  The best part of our road trip was knowing that there is SO many more to come!!!

Here are some close up shots of my work.

Thanks so much for popping in!  I do so love to hear from you!

Until next time!!

And for my second post, I want to share my take on the challenge over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.

Green, blue and white have become firm favourite colours for me to work with, so I particularly enjoyed working on this one!  And just look at that stunning sketch that Em put together for us!

Here is my piece:

Scheme : all there

Evidence : Plain cardstock, stripes, flowers, arrows, word/phrase sticker

Testimony : 100 random questions – sharing a new exciting thing (no 98)

We decided to take a road trip in the second week of the April school holidays; our Wolfster planned everything to a fine, fine detail.  In 10 days, we stayed at 6 different places – one highlight in particular was our trip to the Karoo.  I had never been before, so it was so special that he included this beautiful part of the world amongst our travels.

But the biggest highlight of all – for me – was when we stopped in the middle of a pan.  I couldn’t get enough of the texture and appearance of the cracks in the soil.  I actually ended up lying down on it to get some very interesting photographs.

There was something magical about it.  And my excitement at finally having to literally touch a pan must have rubbed off on my daughter.  She grabbed her blanket and “flew” all around us, shrieking “YEAH” most of the time; and just generally laughing and carrying on like an absolute loon!

It was the most amazing few minutes I’ve ever had!
