Toasting Marshmallows

Here is my page fro the current CSI challenge and also for my update at the Purple Pumpkin blog. We camped out in the back garden this Saturday. We had planned to go camping for a night at a local water park but Sophie can't get her cast wet. She was so disappointed that we decided to do the camp-out in the garden thing to cheer her up. It was a lot of fun and I think that toasting marshmallows over a 'real' camp fire was the kids highlight.
Here are the criteria for CSI:

I was a bit thrown by the inclusion of a sketch, and I think that my version is only loosly based on the sketch, but the elements are there! From the evidence list I chose fabric (the PP flower) and circles. I journaled about the friendship between my two youngest kids. Little Sophie saw that Benji was scared to toast his marshmallow in the flames so she spent a while searching for a long stick for him to use - so cute!
Mt papers are again Teresa Collins. Check out these gorgeous PP embellies!

The fabric flower was a perfect colour match. I loved the spotty button button but the colour was a little bright so I swiped over it with white distress paint. You can do this with almost anything that is a little bright for your colour scheme.

I love these little wooden houses from prima - they are so cute and can be added to most clusters for a little added interest. I love the suudio calico wooden 'words and phrases' too.
Have a great day - its another beautiful sunny one here in Auckland! I hope this summer never ends!
