Abandoned rail line

I am drawn to all kinds of trains, particularly the heritage variety.  Wherever we travel (usually by car, not by rail!) we seek out railway stations, railway lines, rail bridges... there's always something interesting to explore, or at least a place to take some photographs.  I've still got a bunch of shots from our trip to Tenterfield last winter, and I made a fresh start on getting some more of them scrapped over the weekend:

This layout was inspired by a National Scrapbook Day sketch at Studio Calico:

I made my own tag for this one, using coordinating patterned paper, and I machine-stitched around the edges to bring it all together.  Stitching?  I'll submit at Scrap it Girl for the May stitching & sewing theme.

And to top it off, I'm also sharing this at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge for the Anything Goes theme.

I based this layout on the sketch from My Creative Scrappers:

I used lots of scraps and added some fun penwork for the National Scrapbook Day doodling challenge at Clique Kits.
