Road Trip

Take a look on CSI  for details of Case File No. S365-1 {Special Scrap365 Case File closes August 31, 2013} I'm just in time to solve this one! 

My layout shows Andrew, Catherine and Emily picnicking in the car on a wet road trip through Norfolk in 1996. More memories for the Norfolk Album. 

Here is the case file for this challenge:
This is how I solved it:

The Scheme - All five colours used on layout. Papers are from My Mind's Eye - The Sweetest Thing collection.

Evidence - A road map of Norfolk from an old road atlas. A small section of the area we were in has been cut out and trapped under a watch glass (something transparent). Metal pin.

Testimony - Topic is road trip, my story is tucked into a pocket behind the photo, and the journalling is on three tags. 

The journalling tells the story to the children: We promised you a picnic in the forest as we travelled through Norfolk on holiday .....but it rained! So we had the picnic in the car instead.  You seemed to enjoy this just as much! The three of you climbed into the back to eat together.

Just after you were born we had to buy a bigger car to accommodate all three of you plus a big triplet buggy so we decided on the blue Volvo you named 'Alice'. We had two extra rear facing seats added (which folded flat into the boot floor when not needed). This meant we could travel with the three of you and two extra adults and we could then take three umbrella buggies. You used to love it when we got these seats set up and you would fight over who would sit there as we could only have two of you in these seats. You loved to wave at the people in the car behind and got very mixed reactions!

By the time of this trip you didn't need the buggies very often and we had Auntie Marion and Auntie Beryl with us. On this occasion we were visiting Dad's friends John and Elaine who have just moved to East Dereham. 

In addition I used:
Glimmer Mist (Oops I got some on the photo too!)
Prima Wooden elements.
Prima gem sprays and other gems.
My Little Shoe Box tiny letter stickers.
American Crafts Thickers in two different alphas for title.
Sewing machine and white thread
Martha Stewart border punch for pocket top.

Thanks for looking, and pop over to CSI to see more layouts solving this case.
