CSI Case File No. 170 - White Water World

Hello my scrappy friends.
Its has  been quite awhile since I played along over at Colour, Stories and Inspiration.
I was looking for a challenge this weekend and thought I would have a play along with No. 170.
One of the reason I started with CSI was because of the journaling aspect. A lot of my pages only contain a title, not much for those looking back on it in years to come....and scrapbooking is all about the memories and having a bit of creative fun. When I saw these colours I knew I had a photo already printed ...not the size I normally scrap with but   why print another photo when you already have I decided to work with this size. I did find it challenging though and almost gave up.
Here is the challenge.

 This is what I made.
{White Water World}

This is how I solved the Case File-
The Scheme - use all 5 Colours - lime green, blue, white, bright red and bright sky blue.
Evidence - Stripes, triangles, banners, arrows, solid brads, flairs, stars & metal.
Testimony -  Write a Top 10 list.   this journaling is stuck to the back of the layout.
1. We were all feeling very excited for our trip today.’White Water World’ here we come.
Day 3 -The day was just perfect…the sun was shining for us.
2. Upon arrival you jumped out of the car and grabbed your bags.
Then we joined the long queue and waited to get in.
3. You were so excited. You had the biggest smile and was eager to jump on a ride.
4. We are in……“Come on Dad” are you ready yet?
First ride – ‘Super Tubes, Hydro Coaster’….’The Green Room’.
You loved this is one.
 Then ,’The Bro’,
‘The Rip’,
‘Caves of Waves’,
‘Temple of Hueys’,
 and’ The little Rippers’.
All so much fun and   filled with thrilling twists and turns, high speeds and being swept away.
5. You went back to ‘The Super Tubes, Hydro Coaster’ – ‘The Green Room’.
You remember this ride the most, no lines ups, so you were no sooner at the bottom and you were up the steps and being swept down again.
6. You had so much fun and loved every minute of it.
7. Matthew is a water baby so loves anything to do with water.
8. You noticed all the lifeguards and thought that would be a good job and probably  something you could do when you left school or even do as a holiday job.
9. Mum sat and watched, took photos and videoed us from the biggest row of chairs in front
of this cool place called ‘The Shack’.
10. I will come back here one day.

I also added some journaling to the tag tucked in behind the photo

This  is such a huge thrill.
Thank you CSI for choosing my layout as
Tell Your Story. It's our tagline, and here at CSI, it's one of our missions to get our members to delve deeper into journaling--to document the meaningful bits and pieces that make up our lives. We would like to shine a special spotlight each week on a member who did an exceptional job telling their story. Click here to see an archive of all our Star Witnesses.
Janice brings this theme park to life through her 13-year-old son's words. We love that she interviewed him to create the top ten list and that she even included additional journaling behind the photo with that awesome shaggy fiber that adds a whimsical touch to her super-fun, bold, happy page!.
 Doing a happy dance.

This is BRILLIANT....I think journaling is really, really important... & I love that you've scrapped an older memory. Speaking from experience, I don't recall half of what my kids said/did when they were young. So sad....of course I wasn't scrapping then. More the shame!

Love this Boy's page Janice. It reminds me of deliriously happy days we enjoyed with our own Son's at similar adventure parks. The bright colours are perfect for the sense of Joy and your Journalling captures the feeling beautifully. Thanks for the inspiration :)
