CSI Case File #126
"Retirement & Fun"

YAY!!!! I am so happy, just found out that my layout
made it on to the "Most Wanted List"  over at CSI.
Thank you so much to Debbi & all her team.
Hi friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have my layout for the current challenge  #126
for over at CSI (Color Stories Inspiration blog).
I have been so time poor these past few weeks, but
when I saw this case file I knew I just had to make time.
So I stayed up until 2am to get it finished & here it is.
So here are the case file  details. I just love these colours.
Now I have just retired a month ago & I my layout is a tribute to 
"My Retirement".
Based on the fact that I should now have so much more free time when
 things settle down & I get organised after the sale of my business.
I live in a beach side suburb so I am looking forward to having LOTS
of wonderful lazy days on our local  beach & lots of well deserved holidays too.
Because I was self employed, I haven't had a holiday in eight years!!!
Can you believe it.

For my "Testimony" I have written a little story documenting
my retirement & I have tucked it in here behind the pics.
It says.....
On the 2nd May 2014 I finally retired.
I sold my scrapbook shop at
The Entrance & I can now
finally, after working most of my
adult life, enjoy some well
deserved, quality
"Me Time"
doing whatever I want.
I say, bring it on!!!
I am now ready for the next
chapter of my life & in
the words of the famous Tim Holtz,
"Enjoy the Journey" 
& that is what I plan to do.

 For my Evidence I have used four things...
1.  polka dots
2.  flowers & leaves
3.  ampersand
4.  scallops (on the top of my tags)

 I have used lots of gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard here
including this fab little beach umberella, deck chair
& sunglasses to help me set the scene for my layout
 because the beach is where I plan on spending a
lot more time.

Thanks for taking the time to call by & read my little story.
Until next time.
