White Mountains NP

This layout was inspired by the RANDOM WORDS challenge at Soul Scrappers:

Prima Love Clippings - Little Love Notes patterned paper
Flourish with a Bling Luke - Gold flourish
Digital font:  Spicy Rice

I used the challenge words:  GO WHERE YOU FEEL MOST ALIVE.  I love visiting and exploring Australia's national parks.  There's nothing like experiencing the wide, open spaces and panoramic views of some of these magical places. And, although photographs never quite capture that feeling, they do evoke memories and transport me back there :)
