"Nothing soothes the soul like a day at the beach"

 Loved the colours this week at CSI.
For those of you who know me and visit my blog,  
you probably guessed that my layout would  be about the beach....
I love spending time there.
{nothing soothes the soul like a day at the beach}
Case File No. 81
A quote I found and thought it very fitting for me.
I have written it on the back of my layout.
" Doesn't it seem to you
 that the mind moves more freely
 in the presence of that boundless expanse,
 that the sight of the ocean
 elevates the soul and gives rise to
 thoughts of the infinite and the ideal."
 Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

The Scheme.. 5 colours
Evidence: twiggy branch, jute/twine, woodgrain, circles
Testimony: I have listed 6 awesome things about being at the beach
1.Weekends - Sundays
2. Being together - Family time.
3. Rest, Relax and Reflect.
5. The warm sun drenched sand.
6. The unending rhythm of the wild ocean waves.

I have loved reading all of your lovely comments.
Thanks for letting me know you have stopped by.
 Janice xx.
