C'est Magnifique Sponsoring CSI

For the Month of May "Cést Magnifique" will be sponsoring CSI, as part of this we as the Design Team members are asked to play along as Guest Designs, so I thought I would share with you my page.

Its no way spring here as we have just headed into Autumn the colours definitely had a spring feel to them with all the green and yellows, reminds me of spring here when the trees bloom with their beautiful yellow flowers, can't think of the name of this tree I just know it makes me

Not only did we have to use colour but also had a list of evidence and testimony to use as well.

Evidence   Webster's Pages Bloomers (or other similar product)
                     ·      Leaves
                     ·       Bakers Twine, twist something (as inspired by the stem)
                   -  Bling - teapots have silver embossing, as inspired by her necklace

Testimony -   I chose to journal about GROWTH,  the growth of friendships and the growth of leading you away from people that really where not friends to start with.  I have journaled on the tags hidden behind the photos and this is what it reads.

Friends come in many shapes and sizes,  they also come in all sorts of personalities as well.   It took a recent event to happen,  for me to open my eyes and see my friends for who they truly were. This left me with my oldest friends proving to me they will be there when needed although we might not be around each other all the time, whilst the others just faded away out of site.  I don’t expect my friends to share the same views, I love that we can discuss and agree to disagree and still walk away knowing that we are friends.  There have been times over the years that we might go our separate ways for a while, maybe to even seek new friendships, this is all part of growing and discovering who we are.  There will be times I’m sure when we annoy each other, need a break, or our lives are just hectic, for whatever reason none of it means we no longer want that person in our lives.    I think if we all thought about it there are always going to be things that are going to annoy us about each other at some time but this never outweighs the reasons why we are friends in the first place.  What a boring place the world would be if we all shared the same views and thoughts.  

This is what my friends know about me - I am opinionated and not scarred of confrontation, I will ask the questions that people want answered but are not confident enough to ask themselves or worry about the back lash they will get if they ask.  And sometimes they know they will not always hear want they want to hear from me but they also know I am not trying to offend. 
Good friends except you flaws and all and thankfully I have grown and now know who these friends will be.

Thanks CSI for getting me to solve the Case and learning about what the word GROWTH means in my life right now.

Hope everyone had a creative weekend, my friends and I joined in on the "Big Picture"12 hours Creative Crop that we thought was supposed to start here at midnight, we weren't the only ones who obviously worked out this  We stayed up until 2.30am I think, slept until 6.30am and cropped until 4.00pm Sunday before we called it a day.  Now I can honestly I did not get one of those challenges completed or should say started as I was working on DT projects however both Rachael and Marissa gave it a good go, at the end of the day it was all about spending time scrapping which we did or maybe  we mostly
