Did you miss me?

I’ve been on holidays & WOW was it some fun!  But now I am back & boy do I have some wonderful blogs to catch up on.  I will be sharing some fabulous photos of my trip to Outback Australia after my post… so if you’re interested keep scrolling (Watch out for the red dirt)!  I thought I’d start my catchup with the new Lily Pad Cards Color Throw Down  (Not just 3 but count them, 5 colours) & combine it with the current Clean & Simple sketch.  This is the first time I have used this stamp, I couldn’t resist… have I told you that I ride a scooter?  Well it’s not exactly these colours but it is just awesome (when it’s not raining… then I just get wet).

Scooter - Detail

We went to visit an awesome friend of ours who lives near Karratha, would you believe the flight accross Australia was nearly 6 hours (it’s a BIG country).  As you can see there has been a lot of rain in North Western Australia.  We were in the Pilbara region  – and isn’t it just stunning!  We stayed in the eco retreat (where the tents are pictured) and went swimming at the waterfalls….

  3. Love your sweet scooter….so cute! GREAT piccies too…brings back many memories….we spent 7 months trekking around Australia back in 2004….didn’t get to Karratha but got to Karajini which looks very similar….the gorgeous red gorges and waterfalls….just awesome! We were there in Sept though and oh my lord was it HOT…….can’t imagine Summer – phew! The Eco Retreat looks like a very civilized way to camp;-)
