Love every inch of you - DT layout for CSI 132

Hello and thanks for calling in, 
I hope you will be inspired and maybe leave a little comment for me.
Here is the vibrant case file if you'd like to play along.
I was inspired by the outdoor theme and chose to document
a favourite outdoor activity when the children come for the day.
To see what the CSI DT have created for your inspiration. 
Simply use all five colours.
At least two of the Evidence prompts
and at least one of the Testimony prompts
Most of all just have fun.
My page is based on a sketch from Sketchabilities
I had a few whoopsies with the Mixed Media and
covered a lot of the mess with the ruler,
which saved the page from the bin!
The back ground green is My Mind's Eye, Notable "Love this" range.
Sadly, I think that's my last piece of it.
 I used a mixture of scraps here - Kaisercraft, Chatterbox and Bo Bunny
The hexagon stamp is from Bo Bunny
and the hessian flower is from a $2.00 shop.
It was extra large, so I just pulled it apart and used the middle.
 The Mason jar is American Crafts, Lucky Charm, "Dreamcatcher"

String - around the jar
Pour something on your page - Glimmer glaze and Glimmermist
Hexagons - stamped
Floral pattern - on the jar

One of your favourite things to do is to squish your little fingers into play dough and make snakes and dinosaurs.  The best part of this activity is making a new batch of dough.  You love the mixing and experimenting with different types. e.g. flour and salt, hair conditioner and cornflour, flour and oil cooked on the stove. We usually go out under the verandah to contain the mess, however, I can see flour on your forehead and you always like to taste a bit, to see if it’s any nicer than last weeks recipe!  Love Granny 18th February 2014
