Berry Picking

The gorgeous colors this week at CSI were perfect for photos I took of a berry picking session I had recently. My brother and sister-in-law have an abundance of berry plants and were begging for pickers to come and take some of the bounty. I was happy to oblige. I netted two big tubs of blueberries, a big tub of raspberries, and a few strawberries. There is nothing like fresh picked berries!

Evidence used: grid, clouds, circles, and rub-ons.

Testimony is sort of about my hometown, which is a berry growing mecca.

Seal Rock

Yay, coast colors! Not that that matters to me, but you know. More from my trip with the surfer. Whilst he surfed, we explored.

Evidence used: nautical elements, wood, vellum, mesh, twine

Testimony is about time spent at the beach

Take Me To The Lake

This day had been a super rough day. A day that I just wanted to crawl back into bed. My husband works out in his kayak on the lake after work and said to get myself ready, that he would pick me up. I just sat and read, watched the birds, listened to the clink of the sailboats. It was exactly what I needed this day.

Evidence used: map print, clouds, birds, watercolor, boat

Testimony is about my trip to the lake, "On rough days like this, there is nothing like being able to say, 'Take me to the lake!' I listened to the peace."

I Spy

You all know that I love going to the coast and my favorite thing to do there is to find fun critters in the tide pools. This week's case was perfect for that.

I love the giant anchor, by The Cut Shoppe and love the double meaning of the flair from A Flair For Buttons.

Evidence used: nautical elements, wood, animals, mesh, twine

Testimony is about spending time at the beach.
I spy with my little eye
Critters of the sea
Hiding away until low tide
