Scrap Africa - 'Travel' Challenge

Hi everyone! Scrap Africa has a super new challenge and its all about 'Travel'.
'Tell us about your travel adventures... perhaps your favourite location, or the most memorable trip.... anything related to travel.  Please include journaling, even if hidden and tell us where it is.'
To get all the details and to see the rest of the DT's fabulous examples, have a look HERE.

I have decided to do an 8 x 8" canvas of some of the wild animals in the Game Reserves in Africa.  All the little photos are from a postcard we bought when we were holidaying there a month ago.  It is one of our family's most favourite places.
I have used 'Mini Gum Trees' and 'Teagan's Twig' chipboard pieces from Scrap FX.  All products, including the metal charms are available from The Scrapbook Store.  I've started with a few strips of paper from the Kaisercraft 'Mister Fox' collection and also added some texture paste using the Crafters Workshop 'Tile Texture' template.  My family love this little canvas and it has little spot in our lounge where its on display.
I hope you get a chance to play along.  There is some awesome prizes up for grabs and I'm sure we all have a few travel photos that need scrapping.  Why not give it a go?
I hope to see you again around here soon.  Thank you for visiting and have an awesome week. :)
Until next time!

Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge No 32

Hi everyone! It's been a long long time since I've last been in blogland.  We've had a fantastic 4 week break, but now it's back to normality... not that it's a bad thing. :)  I hope you've all been keeping well.
Today I want to share the latest sketch challenge over at Scrap Africa with you.
 My take on the sketch using the Heidi Swapp 'Dreamy' collection.
I've used a variety of Manor House flowers, Petaloo blooms and Green Tara flower stems.  The butterflies are from Collections Elements.
I've used The Crafters Workshop 'Chicken Wire Reversed' template on my background with some texture paste. Then rubbed some ink over it using my fingers.  All the transparency elements are from the ephemera pack from the collection and all products used are available from The Scrapbook Store.
I hope you get a chance to play along with us.  We would love to see your entries. For more detail and to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous examples, have a look HERE.
Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope to be back soon with more layouts to share.
Have a great week!
