Whoa.... Wednesday!

 Happy Wednesday everyone!  We're into week five at school and I'm slowly getting my life "organized" and establishing MY routine!  CSI is keeping us hopping this month with their collaboration with Once Upon a Sketch.  I didn't have my layout finished in time for the reveal last Friday, but there's still time to play along with the current challenge!! 

My evidence includes:
tree/branches - TH Holly Branch die and some old faux wood fence Paper Studio papers
birds - I used my MS bird punch and some really old Colorbok Transparencies
flowers - I created my flowers with a mini heart punch and scored them down the center.  I then adhered the hearts to a piece of scrap paper and built up my flower.
newsprint pattern - Pleated Bazzil border cut in half
border - I layered MME Andrea Victoria papers, Golden Damask and back of Stripes after punching w/ two of my favorite EK Success punches. 
misting - I misted my TA Mists on my G45 paper hearts to bump down the brightness
woodgrain - the faux wood fence Paper Studio papers and a tag made from Creative Imaginations wood paper.

My journaling is in the form of a "newspaper article", 
Day At the Zoo
by:  Mom  October 2004
Today, Mom took Erin & Sarah to the Ft. Worth Zoo.
There the family enjoyed viewing gorillas, tigers, bears
and lions...

My second tag documented the "Daily Routine" we had developed since moving to Texas.   And both of these tags are tucked up and behind the picture of Sarah. 

If you're looking for some color ideas, or some product prompts or need a sketch to jump start your creativity, now's the time to head over to CSI and play along.  We have two fabulous sponsors and there's still an opportunity to throw your hat in the ring!

@ Sandy Trefger
You know I've never really timed myself. This took longer than my "normal" because I was mimicking another DT's style.. And my kids interrupt me non-stop it seems.

Once the groove kicks in tho.. it's like "oh and grab that, smear this and where's that scrap of?..." and the process flows.

Now I'm gonna have to time myself!! Thanks Sandy!!
