Scenic Route?

Over at Scrap Boutique the monthly challenge for October was set by Amanda: to create a layout with at least three photographs of your home town, and include the words 'scenic route'.

This is my layout ~ a few photographs from the 23rd September dust storms. I was in the city with my daughter that day and it was the most eerie feeling. We only had her little compact zoom camera with us that day, so the photographs aren't the best, but with all that dust around it's probably all for the best that I didn't have my nice camera with me!

I used some Scenic Route paper for good measure too. Very sad that the company is closing (some of my all-time favourite papers have come from Scenic Route ranges) but it was a good prompt to dig through my stash and use up some older papers.

More Scenic Route papers (Sonoma) in the next layout too. This one is for the inspiration challenge set by Manon:

I also used some Lil Davis alphas that Liz gave me for my birthday and some gorgeous green ribbons that Miss D had wrapped around my birthday parcel. Thank you xx
