CSI case file 67 - solved

I have been having a hard time getting back into the groove of scrapping since I got back from vacation
I am totally unorganised and everything is piling up! but ....
I really wanted to do a page so I headed on over to CSI to see the latest case file that was just perfect for one of my vacation pics.
This was the case file
This week was also sketch week so it made it so much easier to have an extra prompt to follow
This is the layout I came up with 
I hope I got a better photo of this one than I have in previous posts. Been really struggling recently to get a good shot, so I had a quick look around the web and found a few tips from here and there, I think it's high time for me to use some of the features on my camera at long last!
Any ways back to the layout
My Evidence
Sun - I used a cut file on my cameo
accents from the picture - Stars, on the brad and stamped
use pen pencil - I used a fine marker to outline some of the edges
fussy cutting - I used the coordinates and cut the chevrons into arrow shapes and then feathered the edges
outline elements with pen
use plain cardstock - white cardstock background
Sketch - used
My Testimony
Document something funny
Our vacation was dry but very cold, but that didn't stop us spending a day at the beach, so while Star wasn't in beachwear that didn't stop her from paddling in the sea in her hat, boots and tights!
A couple of close ups

I used some acryllic paint slightly watered down for some paint splashe and I added some clear seed beads for more splashy bits, a bit of texture paste behind the pics (please ignore my wonky stitching on the arrow lol)
I printed my journaling onto white cardstock and then framed it with one of the journaling spots from the coordinates
I had real fun solving this case but now of course I have even more mess to clean up!!
Hi ho hi ho it's off to clean I go
