We're back from our "big" outback holiday, with several hundreds of fabulous photographs... and it makes me realise that I've still barely scratched the surface when it comes to scrapping our last outback holiday.  I've put together a few pocket pages to start the catch-up.

This double page spread (click to enlarge) focuses on Blackall, including the Black Stump and the Jackie Howe monument.   My page design was inspired by the October criteria at 123 Challenge Blog:

COLOUR:  olive green journal card
WORD:  adventure included in my journalling
TECHNIQUE: distressing.  I distressed the edges of the insta-squares and mounted them on torn corrugated card.
