Hello and welcome to a fantastic Case File at Color, Stories and Inspiration (CSI)
This is my DT work for case file 149. I really struggle with the colour blue and the last few case files have been just that, BLUE !! So it was time to put my fears away and tackle blue head on. We all have those colours that we may not be comfortable with or just don't use that much or not at all, so I challenge everyone to create a layout using the colour that you use the least. CSI has made me confront this nemesis head on and I am so happy with the result on this one. This was a trip to Mt Buller in Victoria, Australia with my 2 children. What a great day as it was their first trip. I used to love these first time trips, their little faces and how they would light up seeing something for the first time.

The Scheme; All colours represented,midnight blue, lime green, light blue, teal blue, bright yellow.
The Evidence; I used the following- stars,hearts,fringe, polka dots, swirls (hard to see but they are in the background) use heat, mixed media.
The Testimony; I was inspired by paper wishes, being, a favourite childhood memory but I did it in the eyes of my children and it is as the title says FUN is... and then the five memories of our first trip to see snow.
1. Fun is .. taking my children to the snow for the first time.
2. Fun is... Watching the smiles on their faces as they make snow men
3. Fun is.. Watching and laughing as they struggle to stand in the snow.
4. Fun is.. Mowing down my son whilst I'm on the toboggan.
5. Fun is... Hot chocolate and 2 kids sleeping for the trip home.
Now for some close ups and details
