CSI #14 Ice Cream + TCR # 105 A Day at the Tivoli + Meg's Garden So Much Fun

Glorious to have all those days off from work over Easter but now we're back to the everyday working routines again. I spent all of Easter creating pages for April so as to get a wee bit of breathing space as May will be hellish in the office.

In this post I will share my CSI #14 page called Ice Cream + TCR #105 page called A Day at the Tivoli and another page for Meg's Garden called So Much Fun.

I will simply share all the photos with a minimum number of words written, you'll be fed up anyway by the time you've come to the end.

Next Friday, 13 April I will share some happy news about a GD spot and the layouts that I made for it!

First CSI case file 14:


Atlantic Sea Green - a pale olive green - taken from the ocean - 198.191.154
Powdery Sand - beige - taken from the sky around the center - 247.229.205
Bottom of the Sea - greenish brown - taken from the ocean where the water meets the sand - 102.88.51
Pink Ruffles - ballerina pink - taken from the ruffles - 251.206.204
Beachy Keen - pale buttery yellow with a peach tinge to it - taken from the bunny's head - 253.235.202


* Use ruffles (e.g. fabric ruffles, make paper ruffles, ruffled ribbon, etc.).
* Use animal accent(s).
* Use a wet medium (e.g., paint, mist, ink, etc.)
* Use something sand-like (e.g., sand or glitter or flocking or embossing powder).
* Create waves (interpret that any way you wish!).
* Use sanding as a technique.


* Document a childhood memory.

* Write a haiku or other type of poem. Here's a link for how to write haiku:http://www.creative-writing-now.com/how-to-write-a-haiku.html

*Tell a story from behind--start with the end and then tell how you got there.
*Tell a story where you're looking forward.

* Spread your journaling over 3 different journaling spots (as inspired by the sky, ocean, sand).
* Tell about how someone has left their footprints on the world.

Inspiration Words: horizon, innocence, time--Use these words as jumping-off points for your journaling.

GREEN TARA - Do you see that absolutely amazing PINK fabric bloom and that IVORY tulle dito with pearl centre? they are to die for IRL!

I now have a very speciaL offer for all international ladies who would like to lay their dainty hands on these and ooooodles of more gorgeous ones from GREEN TARA, Australia. They cannot be bought outside Australia as far as I am informed.

However, the beautiful and kind Di Garling who owns a scrapbooking store  JUST FABULICIOUS in a place called The Entrance on the Central Coast of NSW Australia has promised to take email orders and has even registered a PayPal account to make it possible for us living in far away countries to smoothly pay our little beauties. She doesn't have a regular online store but has promised to help anyone interested to purchase the Green Tara flowers through her.

Here's the link to Green Tara's website for wholesalers, CLICK HERE

There you can see all their products and their product codes that you just pop down in your email to Di. Here is her email address which you can also find on her website: vgarling@bigpond.net.au

On 31 March, I had another of my pages called "So Much Fun" up on the Meg's Garden blog;

So Much Fun 4000px-main

Here I have used one of the papers from the Le Belle Jardin Collection - Ma Fleur Rose P6296 - and combined with bouquets of fussy cut spring blooms from the new collection, a mauve velvet pansy and delicious fussy-cut butterflies.

Once again the photo is not my own, I found it on internet. It caught my eye because of the happy feel it has to it, just look at that little girl in her dotted rainhat and cute little mac. I have tried to convey a feeling of sweetness, fresh spring and lots of the fun little people have when running

After this barrage of photos those of you who have made it all the way through, need a serious cup of coffee or tea to regain your energy! Have to admit my mojo has served me more than well these passed few weeks, but now I am letting it off to graze in calmer pastures. I sure need some rest too :))
