There is a bonus sketch this week at CSI from the talented Emma Stafrace. The colours lend themselves to any kind of layout as you can see from the examples by the Design Team.
The idea is to use a minimum of two pieces of evidence and a minimum of one piece of testimony. I chose to reverse the sketch to suit my photo.
This weeks whimsical photo was such fun to work with. Thanks Debbie, you always come up with something wonderful to inspire us.

I was daring and went to the journal prompt. This lead me to write about something which makes me laugh. I didn’t have far to look. The journalling reads.
You little boys make me laugh every time we see you. Your honesty and lack of inhibition allows you to say what you think and ask what you need to know.
One of you innocently asked me “Granny, do you know you’ve got a big bottom?” The other one suggested, having noticed my daggy threadbare grey cardigan. “Take that off, Granny, it’s just not nice.” You crack me up little boys.
On this stinking hot summer day you had been in a little plastic pool, pouring water over each other and shrieking with delight. All it took was for one of you to seize the other’s bucket and a tussle ensued.
Here you are looking a bit sombre, because Pa and I had declared a cease fire and you were miffed about having to sit on the bench for a couple of minutes. Love Granny, January 2013
