Fun Times - CSI challenge 147

Hello, hello, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at
Here's the mood board and you have a bonus sketch from Em Stafrace.
Just use all five colours, at least two of the evidence prompts and at least two of the Testimony prompts.  Inspired?  Then grab your forensic kits and let's get sleuthing.
This page was made from scraps, apart from the white Bazzil.  The blue patterned paper is from Echo Park “Grandpa’s Garden.  The red and the bird paper is an older Kaiser line.
The wooden stars are from Studio Calico
The stamps are from Kaisercraft
The journalling tag is the reverse side of the blue patterned paper

Stamps - the title and the flowers
Stack something, the circles
Chalks, colouring in the stamped flowers
Other animal - do the birds count?

I went to the 365 questions link and chose to write about something that makes me happy.  It’s not surprising that I would choose to write about these two little kidlets, who come to spend the day with us each week.  Their joy in discovery and love of the outdoors makes looking after them a pleasure.  My darling Mother, who had the greenest thumb in the town, would be thrilled to see the next generation of gardeners coming on. 
The hand written note says. “You both love to dig with your own spades; to plant and watch things grow.  You enjoy the snow peas and take some home for your brother.  Each week you check the progress of the tomatoes and the spuds.  You water them and drench each other too!  Love Granny 2nd September 2014
