Queen Charlotte Islands and my Clarinet

I am a musician by training and when I finished my first university degree, I spent a few summers working at a music camp on Vancouver Island. After the camp finished one summer, I flew up to the Queen Charlotte Islands to visit my family who were living there at the time. They had a home right on the Pacific Ocean and we found this piece of driftwood washed up on the shore. I took my clarinet and played my heart out on the shore for several hours while my sister took these beautiful photos. 
The layout is from Magic and I have used my most favourite paper of all time - Magnifique! There is hidden journaling as you can see by the photo of the left page. When it is inside the page protector, a brad holds the flower in place on the outside of the page and it slides around to reveal the journaling. 
As always, click on the photos to see additional detail.
