" Just Chillin' out "

Hi and welcome.
This layout is my Design Team layout for
Love the colours in this case file.


This photo was taken on our trip to New Zealand, This is the entrance to a little Pizza restaurant called
" The Cow "
It is located in a backstreet behind the shops, right on the bend. If you don't know what you are looking for you will miss it. It used to be a milking shed many many years ago. In time it fell into a dilapidated condition and the days of it being used as a milking shed went. 
The destiny of the old milking shed were unknown for many years until someone had the foresight to see potential in  the old shed.
It was sold then renovated to the restaurant that it is today. The owners of the old shed which is now known as The Cow left many of the old features intact. You can still see where the original owners had the fire going all those years ago because the bricks where the fire was are still burnt. 
The Cow doesn't have much room in it,  so you have to be early to get a seat and by that I mean, you are told when you sit down that  if you have a table for 4 and there are only 2 of you then you have to share your table if 2 other patrons come in..
In reflection I think that this is an awesome way of meeting others from far away countries. What a great way to strike up a conversation and learn about other places on the wonderful world. I would love to see this in more restaurants around the world.


Case File 187 at CSI. Love it !!
Case file items
The Scheme- light gray, chocolate, teal, turquoise and burgundy
The Evidence- I used; gogs, stars, keys, something that moves, metal, hearts, stamped background and numbers
The Testimony: I used the inspirational words of Time Destiny and Reflect.
Some of the testimony is on the rear of the layout but in the bottom left corner I wrote the following...
The Cow used to be a milking shed in years gone by. The shed is still intact and looks wonderful. What a wonderful time we had in Queenstown. This was our favourite destination. The Cow had the best food and we had the best time at this place.
