outback


Another trip to Buckalow Station for Annie and Kym in September 06.

Tag on left says : as rare as an echidna. Dad's favourite quote. And then, lo and behold there one was. How lucky to see an echidna in all the vastness of Buckalow Station and in broad daylight. Lucky girl Annie. Dad gently picked it up so you could feel how prickly they are. What a moment.

Tag on right says : we were driving along and we saw a roo. There was a loud bang and he fell over. We chopped him up, put him in nets and put him in the dam and we caught yabbies. LOVE YABBIES, - Annie's description of catching yabbies. 5.9.06

I used Kraft Card, basic grey archaic rusty PP, american thickers alphas, 7 gypsies tags, sewing thread and Photoshop CS3.
Simple, clean, great colours. Catches the outback feel.

Fantastic layout... again!
That journalling by Annie is priceless.... typical child... straight to the point!
Love the colours that you have used.
What adventures the kids must get up to on the station!

Thanks so much for this layout idea to ordered these papers accidentally, but know how to use them now. With Photos of our much enjoyed trip to the Flinders Ranges to, (till everyone got sick with Gastro). Certainly remembered trips when things like this happen at least I'll have something to journal. When we go on holidays with this group of friends something sometimes funny always happens. At the end of July we are off on a houseboat together can't wait.
