In Paradise!

Last week I won the sketch challenge over at Scrapbookers' Paradise so I'm guest designing this week!  Fun!  When I received the challenge theme from Pam, my heart jumped in my throat- it was such a non-me theme-
I generally don't go particularly meaningful!  :)  However, after sifting through my stamps, I realized it wasn't as tough as I expected- I definitely have some great quotes that aren't out of my "normal range."  While I used one from a sympathy set, I don't think it rings that way on this card.  To me, it feels like a message to slow down and breath a bit when things get a bit out of hand.

        


I based the image loosely on what I see out my craft room window.
Thanks for the chance to play along ladies!  I enjoyed the stretch!
