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!

Oh be still my beating heart! I'm in love with your canvas, as it brings back wonderful memories of a holiday in Africa when we saw these majestic animals in the wild. Superb work :D
