Csi Case no. 164
Title: Our Family
This is my niece Tina and her husband Scott with their three boys, this was when they were much younger.
Hayden is in the army cadets and following in our family tradition, as tina's uncle James was also in the army, he no longer is.
All three boys love to fish with their dad on their boat and we often see them on facebook with their catches, always with a huge smile on their faces.
I have use many elements of the challenge, robots, clocks, poka dots, stripes and paint, with lots of other things as well. I have journalled their story on the robot card underneath the gate on the left.  Along with cogs and transparent name tags.

Title:- Cherish Kathleen Ryan - AUS
This is a picture of my sister Heather (black/white outfit) and eve my sister in law. This was a special bus trip with our local Club, as it was the last trip my brother Bill took, Bill is married to Eve and brother to Heather.
The bus trip took us through Melbourne  which we saw 6-7 hot air balloons floating in the sky, then on to Bendigo and our final destination was beautiful Echuca. This was the first trip I have taken with Heather and Eve it was fantastic, we got to hang out and just enjoy the time together.
We enjoyed some games on the way there, we ate out at places I've never been too, we took and paddle steam boat ride on the PS Canberra for an hour or so, soaking up the sun with a little off shore breeze thrown in, we also waved at the people on the shore.
On the way home, lucky bingo card numbers were read out and the lucky door prize, I won $5 and a Cancer Council thermo travelling cup and lollies.
All in all it was a fantastic weekend.
My handmade light blue ribbon I folded and sewed it into place along with the handmade flower at the top.

Scrap the Boys May challenge
Title: Scouts
This is my grandson Izaak being invested from cubs to Scouts, here he is receiving his book of rules. Everyone was there, mum, fitzy (Stepdad) hana, aaron, me, (nanny) aunty ness and nanny sue (Fitzy's mum). We were all proud and excited for this young man.
Scouts has been really good for him, he just received his first badge, a craft badge it was for tying knots. Apparently fitzy, who himself was a scout, helped him practiced tying these knots, Izaak was so proud for passing. Fantastic job.
For mothers day the scouts camped over in the rooms and set up for a pamper night for the mums and special women in the kids lives. They decorated the rooms and set up tea, coffee and cakes, they served the mums, gave then head rubs, back rubs and waited on then hand and foot.
They were worn out with all the walking around they did, but it was a fun night.
my interpretation of the pound the pavement:
Scouts are always on the move.

 Csi CC-5
Title: Live 
This is the relay for life funraiser event, it was held at a friends mothers house.
As we have all known someone who suffered from or died from cancer, this was the best way we could help them raise funds. With raffles and games. We also enjoyed dancing and a great BBQ as well.
It was a fancy dress party as you can see we all did our best with the costumes.
Here is my daughter in the blonde wig and I in my silver wig dressed and Lady pompadour,  the other lady is Shannon, and she and her mum were running in the relay for life team.
I have used many elements painted hearts, chipboard dress, flowers, scalloped edges around the photo's and edges. The metal light stand as well
This was a tribute to those women in the team, well done girls.

csi case no.  163
Title: And so my life begins
This is my big sister Heather. As the title says, we start with Heather as a toddler playing in the veggie garden. 2 representing her age, gotta love the clothes back then.
14 : was when she visited the penguin parade at Phillip Island that was in the early days when you could walk up and touch them. Mind you it wasn't a tourist haven then, so humans had little impact on the birds.
21: that's when my mum and dad presented heather with her 21st Birthday key, that was all the rage back then, and everyone signed it as well.
I have used handmade flowers, scalloped laces, animals, there is a frog in there, butterflies and a bird. I have used paper dollies and lace dollies, a heart with her initial inside, also painted the title chipboard.
The numbers represent Heathers age.
Happy Birthday sis this one's for you.

Csi case 162
Title : I am grody
This is my grandson izaak with his new lego's starwars ship, we gave it to him for christmas. I took him three days to complete, then he pulled it apart and created more items. After he completed them he would bring them out and show us how they worked. Totally amazed at what he created, one clever boy. This was a drawing he did of a robot.

I have used the following elements, die-cut robot from my cricut machine, stensiled glimmermist spots over his body.
Lots of circles in cogs, buttons and the metal clock. The solid black background with the stars, some have been stickled. The one red space station I have used to journal about these photo's.

 Title: Capture the Moment
This is my sister Alice and her oldest daughter Jodie, on her wedding day.
Jodie and Gavin were married in a beautiful park down in Mornington.
Jodie arrived in a horse drawn carriage.
She was a beautiful bride and her father Geoffrey gave her away.
Alice was the mother of the bride she looked relaxed and beautiful in her outfit of soft lavender.
The weather was sunny with just a gentle breeze blowing through the trees.
Afterwards the reception was held in a hotel not for away.
I know my two daughters and I had a great time, the food was good and the music and the champagne kept flowing for my two sisters and I.
We had a great time.
I have used all soft colours as in the mood board in my flowers, ribbons, stickles. Also, the items were the metal of teardrops, the shoes and hanging baubles.
