Moving Along With The Times Challenge

Morning all.

It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With the Times.

This week our theme, chosen by Claire, is

I Do Like To Be Beside the Seaside

I wasn't sure what to go with... but in the end I was inspired by the Footprints poem.

One night I dreamed a dream.
I was walking along the beach with my Lord. 
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. 
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to me and one to my Lord.
When the last scene of my life shot before me I looked back at the footprints in the sand there was only one set of footprints. 
I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest times of my life. 
This always bothered me and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma.
"Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk and talk with me all the way. But I'm aware that during the most troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints. I just don't understand why, when I need You most, You leave me."
He whispered, "My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you."

I've simply taken some shades of blue card and ripped them a bit and embossed them with Dvine Swirls. The sand is actually sandpaper (don't tell Andy in case he's looking for it!!)
