This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Badplaas - CSI Case File no.74

Hi Everyone

I am soooooo pleased it's Friday and I am so happy to just chill and relax a little bit! It certainly feels like it has been a very long week!

I managed to get my layout photographed, just before the sun has disappeared, so at least I am able to post today.

I played along with the new CSI challenge.

I used this sketch as inspiration from Scrap Friends.

Here is my page.

Evidence: Metal brad, flowers
Testimony: Documenting a childhood memory

This photo was taken when I was about 4 or 5 years old, at a resort called Badplaas (direct translation is Bath farm). We spent many a vacation here and it was ideal for kids as they have warm pools and is all centred around family vacations. For days on end we would lie around the pool, rollerskate, play and just chill!

My journalling says:We spent many a vacation at Badplaas, Eastern Transvaal. It was such a great place for families and us kids. We swam and played all day! It was bliss!

I used papers from my stash, BG Sweet Threads and they were perfect for this challenge.

Thanks for popping in!
I appreciate it!
Have a super evening!

  1. Bath Farm...Ai Denise ROTFL !!!!! Love the colours of this page and the 'die' cuts are perfectly balanced alongside the photo...Also love the torn papers at the top...Great work my friend!

  2. Denise you "days gone by" LO is so beautiful - it has absolutely perfect mood for this photo of you! - so cute in that little dress with hair messed up after swimming ♥
    I was there only once and I couldn't enjoy most of the fun activities because I was very pregnant. Very nice place, it is a pity it is so far from us.

  3. So adorable Denise! That photo is precious and I love the beautiful ornate piece out from behind the photo!

  4. Love the way you used this yummy sketch. The stamping and stitching add a lovely element without distracting from the gorgeous photo. Don't you look adorable :)
