Today we left Charters Towers and travelled to Cairns.   We left the inland and hit the coast at Cardwell a very beautiful spot.  We spent some time there stretching our legs.  Both the girls loved it there and wanted to stay.  Such a pity we were on a tight schedule.  Anyway we continued on our travels and reached Lake Placid mid afternoon.  We set up and spent a relaxing time playing charades and sharing stories.  I kept this page simple because the photos bring back many memories and big smiles to the girls faces.  I have used the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More cards once more as well as the Tabs for Everything stamp set in this case just to add the date.  I trimmed the photo in the lower right hand corner to sit on top of the laser cut card.  Once more the title has been cut from Blackberry Bliss card using the retired Timeless Type Alphabet Dies Page two details our visit the next morning to Lake Placid and the Barron Gorge and again uses the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More cards.  I added the “happy life”, small heart and date using the Tabs for Everything stamp set.  The third page shows our visit into Cairns itself and the beautiful St. Monica’s church which has the most stunning stained glass windows depicting creation.   We had a lovely lunch along the esplanade before heading back to the caravan park.  Two of my favourite chefs cooked a lovely BBQ dinner.  The page once more uses the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More cards.

I hope you are enjoying my pages, showing off photos from our holiday.  You can see that I am a fairly simple scrapbooker, preferring to let the photos tell the story.  I hope that by sharing these pages, you will see that scrapbooking or Memory Keeping as I prefer to call it doesn’t have to be complicated.  Hopefully, I may even inspire you to start creating your own pages to share your memories.  I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,
