Inspired by the sea

Case file # 148 is up at CSI, with gorgeous layouts by the Guest Designers and the DT. Here's case file #148:
And this is my take on it:
My clues to solve the case were:
Scheme - all colors are here. with the gorgeous 7 Dots Studio papers, it was so easy to match the papers with the right colors.
Evidence - flowers, branches, watercolors, tags, strings, pen work.
Testimony - I love the seaside very much. it calms down, inspire and I can spend hours by the sea. so this is what my journaling is all about. I wrote is in a kind of a recipe and used the IW inspiring.
I used the sketch and theme of this month's challenge at Once Upon A... Sketch:
I was also inspired by the current challenge at Scrap Around The World, with this beautiful inspiration moodboard:
I was inspired by the flowers photo, with some of the colors (yellow, pink, pale green and cream).
All pp, stickers and stamps are from 7 Dots Studio. Chipboard is from Creative Embellishments and the flairs are Studio40Fourteen's.
Here are some close ups on the details:

We also have a Guest Designer call, so if you're intrested, give it a try and join us. don't forget to add GDT to your entry!
I had a very hectic week, but managed to squeeze in this layout:
The photo was taken last Sept., when we went to our Jewish New Year vacation. I'm so happy and thankful that I can spend time with my boys, relaxing and traveling, just hanging out with my boys.
All papers, apart from the kraft cs, are from Fancy Pants 'Collecting Moments' collection, and so are the die-cuts, sticker, flair, buttons, tag and printed chipboards.
I also used chipboards from Creative Embellishments, applying different mediums on them. 
The flower is Manor House.
