Oh Hello There - CSI DT challenge 162

Hello Scrappy friends, welcome to my blog.
Sorry I've been MIA a bit lately.
For health and family reasons, I've decided to step down from CSI.  I know I will miss it, but hope to find time to play along.  I’m so grateful to Debbi for giving me the opportunity to be part of such a talented and inspiring team. 
Like the look of the challenge?  Well grab your forensic kits and let's get sleuthing.  There's lots of prizes to be won.
To see what the DT and Guests have created for your inspiration.
The background paper is an oldie, but a goodie, 
"Rough and Tough" by Fancy Pants.
 The little pinwheel is by Kaisercraft and 
the speech bubble is by Basic Grey
Love the film strip by Tim Holtz
and the cute robot/space man by Kaisercraft 
I'm not sure where I acquired the fabric flair.
The label is also an oldie, from ?October Afternoon

Space elements, Metal, Circles, Stars, Stripes, Something transparent, Swirls, Label, Ink, Die cuts. - I almost used all the Evidence prompts,

I chose to write about something funny.

When you were almost 12 months old, one of your favourite toys was your rocket tent.  You were not able to walk, but were able to pull yourselves up, so the holes in the rocket ship were perfect to hang on to and just wonderful to play peek-a-boo.  You spent hours crawling in, peeking out, bobbing down and disappearing.  After a while you learnt how to lean on the sides of the rocket and tip it over.  As you tumbled over together, arms and legs intertwined, your squealing and giggles made us all laugh.
