A Serene and Peaceful Place

A few years ago and group of my old school friends, their partners and some others went back to the area we all grew up in, and started exploring places we had all been to at different times, but not all together - if you get my drift. I grew up on a farm. Next to the coast. We went to a place called locally Hell Fire Bluff, but the maps call it Cape Bernier, which is on the coast. It's on a private road, with a key to unlock the gates to go in. Along the way we stopped for a picnic lunch at a little quiet beach with several streams running down to the water's edge. Here is a photo essay for you.....

This place was so quiet, beautiful and peaceful, full of harmony - so I used one of the photo's to create a step card.

I love the saying by the Dali Lama, and my Kaiser paper has feather's on it!

The black bazzil card is 12 by 7 inches folded at 4, 8 and 10 inches to make the steps. Folds are mountain, valley, mountain. The photo is mounted on some scrap Vanilla card.

We take so many photo's that rarely see the light of day - we should use them more in our work.

This is for Unstampabelles, where the theme is peace and harmony, and the twist is flight.

I will enter this in the following challenges:
