Australia Day scrapping (1)

It's Australia Day today, and after a lovely morning out and about in the outdoors, it's time to relax indoors and enjoy the cool air conditioning!  I've done two more pages for my Rockhampton album:

Want2scrap Labels Eleven chipboard album (used as page template)
Memento Spring Collection patterned paper
Carl Mini Daisy punch
Bazzill Basics Bitty Blossoms - Apple Green flower
Green Tara 4cm Petals - Sky Blue paper flower
Green Tara 2.5cm Petals - Batik Green paper flowers
Kaisercraft 2cm Sky Blue paper flowers
Flourish with a Bling Antique Gold pearls
Kasiercraft Bliss pearls
Silver butterfly charm (RAK prize)
Enamel shape (RAK prize)

I'm entering this one at the Scrapping Clearly Australia Day "Aussie Icon" cyber crop challenge - inspired by the Great Barrier Reef in the colours and theme.

I'm sharing this page at:
* Word Art Wednesday ~ Challenge Weeks 266-267.  No 'sentiment' on this one, but lots of positive journalling.  I hope that's okay.
* Simon Says Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
* Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper ~ Anything Goes.  As part of my stash-busting mission I've been targetting my older paper collections;  in this album I've been using the last of my Memento, which (I think?) was a Canadian manufacturer. It may be 'old' but I still think it's beautiful!

I hope the designers and the crafters who visit these challenge blogs will enjoy a spot of beautiful Australian scenery.

Thank you for visiting my blog!
