Social Stamping – Travel

Image may contain: text

Hi Everyone, and thanks for stopping by tonight for this weeks social stamping Blog Host – An informal virtual gathering of stampers and crafters. The theme for this afternoon is Travel….something that for some of us we aren’t doing at all, and for others we are travelling to places we might not have otherwise ventured. If you want to see the full list of everyone participating tonight you can check it out here.

Today’s project is a bit different for me – I am sharing a scrapbook page. I am buy no means an experienced or avid scrapbooker – I like the idea of scrapbooking our life….but I am super slow at it. The way I go about it is after I decide on a theme and some colours I cut out a stack of bits and pieces and photos, and then lay them on a page on my desk. I then spend the next day or so wandering in and out and moving things about until I am happy. For me it’s not the most efficient hobby! Maybe I would improve with practise though 🙂

Last year in January we took a road trip to visit some family who had moved to Denmark (The town in WA, as opposed to the Country). Sam and I had not been to the Great Southern in years and the kids had never been, so we packed the car and headed off. The landscape and coast line in that area are spectacular, just so beautiful. If you live in WA and are looking for someone to head for the upcoming school holidays I highly recommend this area. We spent about half a day wandering, climbing and splashing about at Greens Pool, an area known for ‘Elephant Rocks’ – the centre photo in my page shows these rocks and they do look like a herd of elephants.

To embellish the page I have stamped a heap of images from the stamp set Seaside Notions, coloured them with blends and cut them out. Both pieces of DSP are from the newly retired Tropical Oasis paper pack, and I have also used the retired Delicate Lace Edgelit dies.

One of the images I printed out for the page was a small snapshot from google maps to help me remember exactly where this beach was.

I hope you have enjoyed this afternoons share, next up on the hop today is Sandra – click below to visit her blog and then keep hopping around till you are back to where you started.

  3. Thank you for sharing your holiday Shannon. I love your scrap book page and can relate to the way it took form – that would be my way as well. With such wonderful family memories, you would want the page right to reinforce those happy moments, so your time spent was worth it. x

  4. Lovely page Shannon – I agree, it’s a lovely part of WA – the coastline is so rugged and sometimes very wild. Looks like you all have a wonderful time.
