inspiring sunset

felt the urge to scrap today (on the computer) and pulled out some photos I took in May when I had a week on the beach after working in Canberra (Australia) before returning to Scotland – just to explain why there are pelicans in the photos. 

I used one of the fabulous free templates from Katie Pertiet – she creates one most weeks for the Sunday Challenges on Designer Digitals.

I also used this layout for the challenge at ARTastic which uses a famous painting each month as its inspiration point – this month it is a sunset by Monet.  I just discovered this challenge site this month – I like the idea and that there is a month to respond.

pelicans in the sun

Journaling reads

Pelicans were the stand out stars of my week on the coast east of Canberra.

I love their silhouette, - it is so distinctive flying and standing on posts, as they do a lot even though they are big.

They look graceful gliding over the water but on land they are awkward and they make a big splash when coming into land on the water

I had stunning sunny weather and lots of light sparkling on the sea which seemed to stretch out for ever.

A relaxing and refreshing week.
