Boy he loves the dirt

Loved doing the colours even though I am not a fan of yellow. For the evidence I have used stars and a solid background. For the testimony I have gone with the 3 facts.
I was late doing this layout as I was away on holidays. However it will be the last layout I will be doing here as CSI. To see my reasons, feel free to visit my blog
Thanks for looking.

That dump truck with the torn paper is way cool.

This tickles me and delights me.. love your torn paper edges and LOVE that dump truck!  You nailed the colors spot on and it's so fun to see your son playing.  Love your design.

I have to chime in with Debbi.  It's heart breaking to hear you're unhappy.  I enjoy your work and truly believe there's more greatness to come from you.  I, too, hope you'll continue playing.  But if you decide your happiness is somewhere else, you'll be missed.

Hi, Marissa,

I love your page. The photos are wonderful, and I especially love the way you added the three factoids. That great big star is awesome tucked behind the patterned paper, and I love how you added the three smaller stars--and how perfect is that little dump truck as an accent!  Great title work too. I love the way you've designed this to show the progression of photos.

I read your post, and you seem to have been misled and given false information.  You said, "those over at CSI believe my pages are only mediocre." I just read all of the comments posted on the pages you've shared in the gallery, and they have all been very complimentary and positive from both CSI members and the design team.

In fact, one of your pages has been placed Under Surveillance--voted on not just by me, but by the design team as a whole, so your work obviously is feature-worthy. This is what being placed Under Surveillance means. And just to let you know, your name has rolled through the voting process several times and has missed out on being featured by a short margin.

I hope that you will continue playing with us at CSI. Your pages are always a pleasure to see in the gallery!
