Travelling to Darwin

November 24, 2018

In the September School Holidays, Ron and I were invited to travel to Darwin with our eldest daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren.  We decided to leave home a few days before them so we could have a few days in Mt. Isa before we travelling into the Northern Territory.  We stopped overnight in Mitchell, Blackall and Winton and then Mt. Isa.  Funny but true story, we went into the Post Office in Winton and Ron ran into an old friend from Laurieton.  We had a great afternoon catching up.  I created a quick overview page as the cover for our travel story.  This is the same layout I used for the trip to Cooktown in the June school holidays.  This time the photos are attached to Early Espresso card.  I used the retired Date It stamp set to stamp the date onto Whisper White card using Early Espresso ink.  I punched out the date using the  Every Day Label Punch.  I used the same punch to cut Early Espresso card and attached it behind the stamped card.  The piece is attached to the back of the photo layout before being attached to a Whisper White 12″ x 12″ page.  The title is cut from Early Espresso card using the Large Letters Framelits Dies.   So simple to create but effective for a title page, don’t you think?

While in Mt. Isa we took a drive to Lake Moondarra.  We had never been out there before and weren’t we surprised.  Such a fabulous waterway with beautiful picnic areas, and a boat ramp.  According to friends of ours who live in Mt. Isa, it is well used by the locals.  For this page, I attached a piece of Blueberry Bushell card to a Whisper White 12″ x 12″ page.  I attached the photos and the Best Route Memories and More journaling card to the page over the Blueberry Bushell card.  I cut the letters for the title from Blueberry Bushell card using the retired Timeless Type Alphabet.

Pretty simple, but really, that it my favourite style.

Bye for now,
