Tis the Season to be Jolly - CSI Case File no.103

Hello Everyone

Merry Christmas to you all! I hope you had a super, fun and festive day yesterday!

We had a lovely day with family yesterday, even though it was very quiet and it was a cool and rainy day!

I have a page that I have finished for the CSI Case File no. 103.

I used the fun and festive BoBunny Elf Magic Collection, which was perfect for this challenge.

Evidence:Stars, Circles, Horizontal Lines
Testimony: Journalling/Title with "Season"

I absolutely love this time of year! It means family, festivities, fun and just being absolutely jolly! ;-)

These fun photo's were taken at Renaissance Village at the Christmas house! Joe and I put on Christmas hats and Johann was joking and making us laugh for the camera. As you can see I was just saying "cheese" and Joe was really trying to keep his antlers on the top of his head, because they kept slipping off! ;-)

My journalling tag behind our photo says:
For me, the festive season is about spending time with my family. On 20 Dec we went to see the Christmas house at Aunty Steph's Renaissance Village. It was absolutely amazing to see all the lights and Christmas goodies. We took fun photo's, had lots of laughs and were absolutely jolly! It was so fun and good to enjoy this time together!

I did some gesso stencilling, which was a little smudgy, the different paper layers were making the stencilling difficult.  In the end, I don't think it matters too much, it all adds to this page.  I was just a little disappointed that the some of the gesso went a little pink on the red papers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you enjoy the rest of your festive season!
My blessings and best wishes to you all!
