1st Design Team Reveal at Colour Stories Inspiration

Hi Everyone,

So excited to share my 1st reveal here at Colour Stories Inspiration with case file #121. To see all the gorgeous creations from the DT, Special Agent, Investigators and Detectives click on the link above and prepare to be totally inspired.

CSI #121 - Love Documented
When I read the criteria for the Testimony on this week's case file I spied the word home.  I immediately thought of an old photo of my children taken on the front veranda of our home.

I think they were about 11 and 9 years old here.  We had just returned from a trip to the Philippines and this was the 1st time we had ever been away from them.  I didn't realise how much I would miss them until I was away from them, and I was so happy to be home. Upon entering our driveway this is what greeted us.  Luke and Brittany were so excited that we were coming home that they made a welcome home sign for us.  It had me all teary thinking they must have missed us as much as we missed them.  This is one of those memories that melts my heart every time I think about it.
