Template Challenge The Place I Call Home

Such fun to do! I have fallen in love with yhybrid crafts over the past few months and can easily see how Elisha's digital LO template would translate. Hope I have included every supply I used - the format seems to require picking and mixing from a great number of collections. TFL

Journaling

So many people think of Essex as the place where London overspills into flat, featureless countryside. But I am happy to call the place Home & I find delight in its subtle beauty. Water is ever present; wide muddy estuaries, salt marsh, neither water nor land. And boats - ocean-going craft, yachts, dinghies - they are everywhere. People row, sail or just watch others pursuing their hobby.

But to limit the description of this place I call home to the charms of the coast, would be to tell only half the story. For Essex is a place or Royal hunting forests and venerable oak trees, of wide open fields, burdened with grain and cattle. It is a land of stately homes and ancient timbered houses. And modern structures grace the towns - architectural masterpieces that would be an asset to any cosmopolitan city.



    It sounds wonderful, Hillary - I really wish I could visit the area. Lovely photos and I like the design a lot, too. So much interest in all the irregular shapes & placement.
