Enjoy every moment - CSI #99

A new, lovely challenge is up at CSI:

And here is my take on it:

A true mix of findings from my pile of stash: no one mentioned - no one forgotten this time, but I spot The Paper Bakery, Studio Calico, LYB, Basic Grey, and probably some more :-)

Journaling: "DS10 is still enjoy the small things in life - like hunting for treasures in the garden with the metal detector. May 2013"

How I solved the case:
*Colors: The DT members get the file cases quite far in advance and the first description said pale grey instead of pale green. So my layout has grey instead of green :-) But the other colors are used.
*Evidence: Butterfly, Wood, silver metal,fabric (puffy and pleated, too), six of something (triangels, groups of six stars, six other wood embellies)
*Testimony:six word memoir

Do we see you this week at CSI?

Journalings says: It's just so relaxing to sit down in the patio, watch above the land and sea, knowing it's growing and blooming there.

A few details:

Flowers & photo frame: Freckled Fawn. Resin birds: Webster's pages. Ribbon: MME

Yellow striped gem: Queen &Co. Wooden hearts: unknown
