What an amazing weekend that took me to a place I love…the water.  On or around the water is where I Breathe..my happy place. It was to the Colorado River this weekend…  


This weeks Mixed Media Monday was inspired by my place of happiness…the beach.

This was all about playing out of the box and adding lots of tecture…I was "ok" with it as I said over and over again 🙂  


I will tell you that this part of my weekend left me white knuckled and NOT BREATHING!…
