Sharing another lo that I created while at Swirly camp. I took this picture at Bennett Springs State Park in 2011. I believe it is an old water wheel house. Roger and I had spent the morning trout fishing. Little did we know that I would end up moving near here and working a few miles down the road a year later. At the time, Bennett Springs was a good three hours from home.

I used an old Swirlydoos kit, French Quarter, to complete this lo. I also entered it in a Swirly Girls challenge called, Places not people. The rules included using a title, cardboard, and a picture of a place (no people or pets allowed in the photo).

This lo was chosen as Layout of the Week last Sunday! Thank you for the honor!

Our layout of the week goes to Jan, with her tranquility layout. Jan used the French Quarter kit to perfectly showcase this gorgeous old water wheel house.

Don't you just love all the texture on this layout. That beautiful burlap flower, the embossing on the title and the piece of cardboard create the perfect palette.

Can't you just hear the birds singing and the leaves rustling in the wind when looking at that photo?

“There is a place so pure and true, beyond your deep and restless thoughts you'll find an imaginative longitude for dear shelter, completely lost in time... It's made of love, of magic dreams, where you can be yourself and free... Where roses of white and scarlet bloom...tranquility, waves kissing shore... A place you'll never want to leave, a place for dreamers to believe... So, spread the wings and let your soul fly up high and reach your castle in the sky...” Oksana Rus

Congratulations Jan!
