More Than Words

Living in the bush means I am surrounded by nature every day... I love it!  In our natural environment we frequently encounter native Australian animals ~ most commonly we are visited by kangaroos and wallabies and birds, but occasionally we catch sight of our resident koala too.

CSI ~ Case File #251:

Colour ~ blue & white
Stories ~ I have journalled directly onto the layout and included a memory about animals
Inspiration ~ No llamas here, but I featured an adorable animal, decorative scallop edge inspired by the llama's blanket, solid colours in the background, and some zig zag stitching.

Simon Says Monday ~ Trio of Something ~ I've used a series of three photographs.

Thank you for visiting my blog!
