CSI No 131 The Great Outdoors

Hello Everyone!
 
So, are you ready for this week's challenge? 
Here is Case File No. 131
Its open and ready to be solved.
This week we also have a fabulous Page Drafts Sketch by the talented Em Stafrace
 
Here is my Design Team  take
 
{the great outdoors}
The Scheme;  using all 5 colours.
Evidence: wet medium- gesso, string, sun, brads.
Testimony; Journal about  an outdoor activity,
Inspiration words; outdoors
 
Growing up on the farm was fun.
We spent hours outdoors riding bikes, building cubbies and climbing trees.
It was an fabulous life. With it came some responsibilities.
We had lots of animals and they all needed to be fed and watered.
It was our job to do this when we got home from school.
We each took turns and did different jobs each week...most times it worked.
I loved watering and feeding our 3 working dogs.
Their kennels were in a patch of scrub and the tree tops were covered in a woven mat of what we called "snotty gobble". I would climb up the trees and muck around on it for ages...never ever having any fear of falling through or hurting myself. It was amazing  stuff and created hours of fun.
 
The Sketch; I have followed to suit my layout.
I just used the1 photo and cut it into 4 pieces
 
2Crafty have such gorgeous Chippie to add to your layouts.
 
We would love to see you join in and share your layout in the gallery.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
Your comments  are truly appreciated...Thank You.
 
Janice xx

A beautiful country page Janice and your journalling brought back lovely memories of the freedom of growing up on a farm. Love the interpretation of the sketch and the yummy Chippies :D

Took me right back to my days on the farm growing up. LOve the photo and what you did to it and the chipboards looks wonderful. Gorgeous background and of course the cherry on top is the journalling. A time when things were simpler.
