I visit way more scrapping/photo/journaling challenge sites than I respond to.  I find that if I don’t get an immediate spark then I don’t return to it either.

This week the spark was there when I read the digidares challenge.  The subject was water – which I love and one component was to split the photo and I knew I had a template for that from Mel.  The other components were challenging (which is good).  The instruction was to use as least 3 blues and that is not my favourite colour and also to use a wave or splash or water droplets and I don’t usually use those kinds of elements.  Having a one word title was the final instruction and I was OK with that. 

So here is what I created

the journaling reads

I like to walk by the sea regularly, weekly if possible.  There is something about the sea that recharges my energy and makes me feel good. I know some people get this from trees and some from mountain tops but for me it is the sea. Wild or calm I like the sea, I like the sound of the waves breaking and I like the ever changing nature of the surface.   It is this self realisation that prompted me to look for my new home in a suburb near the shore.
