Catch up with CSI

There have been several Case Files and special Case Files posted the last couple of weeks and sadly I have been a slack on on blog posting.  Been working too much which hopefully stops and running up to Granbury in hopes of finding a home. This first file was for a special Case File and I did this one months ago - just never have shown it till now.  This is a shot I caught of my daughter during a family party when she didn't realize I was taking pictures.  Love it!

 The next one is the Case File for this week #147 which I solved using pictures of my 15 year old kitty.
 Lastly this is a special Scrap 265-9 Case File and I used these pictures of Jason and Maria from their trip last spring to San Miguel.  On the back I have journaled about the country.  I'll include it here as it's pretty fascinating.

You all had such a fabulous time during your trip to Mexico to see Maria’s family.  You spent one special day traveling to San Miguel.  Such a magical city.  I looked it up and found that there were 10 reasons to go and enjoy this magical place:

1.         History – located in Central Mexico it has no beaches yet people fall in love with this magical city who history dates back to 1542 and plays a major role in silver trade.

2.        Architecture – it’s known for it’s well-preserved Colonial and Spanish architexture.

3.        Eclectic shops – a mix of art galleries, souvenir shops, modern boutiques and old stores.

4.        Cultural Mix – With a moderate climate and cost of living it draws not only rich Mexican culture but many foreign retirees, artists and writers

5.        Food & Dining – Because it’s so popular with tourists there are foods galore from street goods to gourmet restaurants.

6.        Rooftops – with temperate weather, many restaurants and bars are on rooftops offering beautiful city views

7.        Art – The city has a vibrant art community with many studios and galleries with working artist and artisans

8.        Walkability – the historic center of the city is 24 blocks of narrow streets ,alleys and paths with no traffic lights.

9.        Jacaranda Trees – lavender-colored jacaranda trees are natice to this regions and are beautiful
Dramatic sunrises and sunsets – Because of the light and changing colors of the foothills of Sierra Madre, the sunrises and sunsets can be quite dramatic

Then here's another page I finished with this adorable picture of my grandchildren when they were little with the November Gossamer Blue kit
