CSI case file 27 - Solved

This was the case file to solve
And here is how I solved it
Sparkles (gems on the butterflies)
Woodland animals (ok so I streched with this one cos mine is butterflies lol)
Journal in rhyme
My journaling is tucked behind the pic and reads
It just happened to be
A place by the sea
A beach for the dogs and a warm fire with logs
It seemed to be right 
For a place to take flight
How could we know then,
It's a haven, a den
A small slice of bliss with a view not to miss
Glan Y Mor
A sweet Home from Home
I'm not the greatest poet but was quite pleased with that little ditty

A couple of close ups

I cut the "home" title on my cricut and used the negative which I backed with a strip of lime green paper
The wood veneer bicycle is from a lady on 2peas that has some absolutely great pieces for a great price

I made my own chevron mask for the background and then stitched a border on my sewing machine
My fence is a Memory Box die
I cut the MME journal card and used the title above the pic and the rest for the tag
Go check out the gallery at CSI for some great inspiration
