On the Wallaby

She blogs!!!!!  I thought I’d squeak in a page
on the last day of the Kraft+ challenge.
August was the last time I blogged and I hope to improve my strike rate in 2016.   I was inspired by the Travel theme  and have taken a long time to figure out a new photo editing programme - better late than never!

The page is about a three month trip in our Caravan, North from 
Adelaide to the Northern Territory, across to 
Western Australia and home via the Nullarbor.  

I used a Prima stencil and texture paste to give the impression of 
"droughts and flooding rains" on the map.
The travel quotes are mostly from Pinterest
What an amazing country we live in.  Each day a new landscape and a new adventure.  We didn't plan anything much, just drifted along, camping by the side of a River or in a free park, occasionally staying in a Caravan Park to charge the batteries and wash our clothes.
A misty start to the day, Cooinda Road, Kakadu National Park, N.T.
Love the little caravan flair - it's from Scrap Friends.
The Bungle Bungles, Purnululu National Park, Kimberley region, W.A.

Happy New Year to you all, wishing you good health 
and harmony throughout the year.
