Perfect Daydream

This photo is one of my favorites from a trip to the gorgeous Canadian Rockies. As I stood there, looking out onto Emerald Lake, I knew that it was going to make a beautiful photo, and it is one of the best in my collection. When I want to take a few seconds out from a busy day or need help falling asleep at night, this is one of the visuals I see from my most treasured memories. Recreating this stunning vision in a daydream helps me take my mind off of most daily problems that have come my way. The calmness it brings is needed some days more than others!

This is my creation for Case File 125 at Color, Stories, Inspiration. The challenge at CSI each week is causing me to have a paradigm shift in the way I think about color, techniques, design and journaling.  If you are interested in becoming a better scrapbooker, check out their website, join in and play along. You won't regret it!
