Tree Fella's - CSI Case File no.73

Hi Everyone

The weeks are flying by, and the weekends even faster! I can't believe that it was Friday night a few hours ago and already it is Sunday afternoon! I wish the weekends would last forever!! ;-))

I played along with a CSI challenge and the colours were a little challenging for me, but I managed to create a page.

So here is my page.

There's a little play on words in the title, with Tree Fella's, as they are also fellers.

Evidence: Circles
Testimony: My jounralling is a series of directions
Then men in our family (Dad, Johann, Rudi and Mark) were asked to help out with some tree felling in December 2012, while they were all on leave. It turned out into 4 different days and 4 different locations! So they became the Tree Fella's (fellers)! My Dad was the organiser and the adviser and shouted directions.
The journalling spots say this:
- Hold onto this rope and make sure the branch is secure. Be careful now!
- Hold on tight now, is that saw secure? Okay boys, let's get this job done quickly.
- Hey guys, please be careful. Make sure that branch doesn't fall the wrong way! Watch out!!

I used the Fancy Pants Designs Swagger collection, with lots of spritzing and colouring. The chipboards are Enmarc and Design Worx, and the alpha stickers are Crate Paper.

I really wanted to add lots of texture, to add to this masculine page and love that way that it turned out.

Thanks so much for popping by!
I do so love your visits!
Have a super evening!


  1. I agree with you that the color combo is a challenging one, with the contrasting blue and orange. But you solved the case brilliantly. These photos, with the orange hard hats, were a perfect choice for this color palette.

  2. Beautiful....I love all the texture and you nailed the colour challenge.

  3. wow Denise!! fantastic LO and so original!! love how you designed it!
