This weeks challenge at Gingerloft is “Under The Sea”. I didn’t take the word “UNDER” to heart on this one…I did take the word “SEA” to heart however!
I grew up on the Oregon Coast (Coos Bay, Oregon). I moved to Albany, Oregon (inland) just before my sophomore year of High School at Marshfield High School. Okay I’m giving you my history because I wanted to point out the importance of the beach to me… I am scared to death of the ocean believe it or not…I’ve been a lifeguard, I’ve been a swim teacher, I’ve been an aqua fitness instructor; but I’m scared to death of the ocean. I know, I know…weird! I’ve known of too many people who have just been walking along the jetty only to be swept up by the ocean and killed. So, needless to say – I don’t like the power, the unknown qualities that make it able to sweep you into it’s belly. I have a respect for what the ocean is. Okay – with that being said…LOL Wow – maybe this is just TMI (Too Much Information)? But just one more thing you now know about me. Right?
For this card I went sort of sweet and simple – it isn’t simple enough to be considered a CAS card, but for me, it is certainly sweet and simple. I added some roses, some shells, and some pearls. In the sun I added some gems. I put some Glossy Accents on the fish. The sentiment is a Close To My Heart rub-on.
Thanks for looking!
