CSI File #34: Relaxed

I admit it: when I saw last week's CSI color challenge, I though No Way! I never scrap with the given color combo and had no photo to go with it.

But a challenge isn't a challenge if it isn't challenging, right? So I put my thinking cap on. And suddenly I knew which photo I wanted to use, and what I wanted to scrap about.

To me relaxing is having time to do whatever I want to do, without thinking about what I actually should have done. Some times it's even necessary to get away from home to be able to relax completely, and this is what the journaling on my layout is about.

 The photo is of hubby during our stay in Greece this August. Releaxing isn't necessarely about doing nothing, but some times it feels so good! Just stretching out in the sun, having no worries or duties.

If it wasn't for this CSI challenge, I would probably have scrapped with completely different colors, but I'm very happy about the final result. I enjoyed beeing pushed out of my comfort zone, and will surely do it again!

What kind of challenges do you find are pushing you out of your comfort zone?
