The Window

Its Friday and time for CSI -no-128-case- reveal. 
Here is my case investigation as part of Special deputy.
Yesterday while cleaning a closet i got this adorable pic of my daughters ( 3yrs and 2 yrs In this pic) leaning on this widow ledge. Love the way younger one trying to copy her sister. This window in our rented apt in Mumbai, INdia, was my daughters favourite place. they sat there whole day, gazing the busy Mumbai roads, chatting with their friends in the building across ours, ( little one was a mute spectator then) , eating there, and even play in that little corner . While writing this, all memories are coming back. They use to spread their little hands to collect the rain water and then drink it. It was all soo cute.
Just miss that time.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing this story about the window

CSI Case 127-- Action Replay

i just keep wondering sometime, how do ladies at challenge blogs get amazing color palette, sketches and embellishments ideas. I get inspired by their challenges, but who and what inspires them.
CSI - 127 the challenge has awesome array of colors, fabulous sketch and journaling prompts.

I had soo much fun making layout . Did little research on Retro fashion and made my own embellies. 
There is hidden journaling below the frock.( cool isin't it).
My elder daughter went for the school dance themed on Retro looks .What fun the girls had while  dressing up  and applying make up.
My journaling says

Curled up hair,
Applied some make up
-With nice dresses to wear
And looked very fair
Thats all it took
To have that perfect retro look

Thanks fro your time.Your comments are highly appreciated.

This is my first layout ever as part of a design team.  I was soo nervous while making this. I know it little weird to make snow layout but in this season , but believe me this is a pic taken just few weeks back, at Mt Rainier in WA. It was such a fun day, laying in the snow without actually freezing in the cold.
We sled, threw snow balls , ate icicles.
