This week's host is
Senior Designer, Sarah Anderson...

"In England's green and pleasant land" [Blake 1804] 
coming across waterfalls or tiny streams
is one of my very favourite things whilst out walking.  
I love the movement of the water as it falls, 
the fresh greenery surrounding it, 
and best of all, the wonderful sound it makes.  
This photograph brought all this to mind for me, 
and also suggested the unusual colour combination 
of gold and silver, which I NeVeR put together. 
 But I have to say, I just LoVe how it turned out 
on my journal page!"
