“The Amazing Race – Antarctica!”

I hope you have been traveling with us on our Amazing Race Journey! πŸ™‚

You will notice I am missing Stop 3 Asia, but will have it up next week for you. I used it as my DT layout example for October so is still a secret till then. πŸ™‚ We stopped in Asia and I chose Russia as my destination! Very pleased with my layout and cant wait to share!! πŸ™‚

So for stop 4……..

As it is cold over there, our CRITERIA to include on our layout was:

1. White Space

2. Cool Colours &

3. Texture

I didn’t have any Winter pics so I used this one of my boys a few years ago at the pool! I used some mist, crumpled paper and ink! The banner is so cute and one I got from a swap and I used some ric- rac and some other bits from my stash! πŸ™‚

“The Amazing Race!”

Over at http://scrapbookingtop50.forumotion.net/ they have an amazing challenge at the moment! A race around the world but not leaving your scrap desk!!!

So pack your bags and grab your passport and get over there an join in!!!

Our first Stop is Sunny Sydney Australia!

I used some retired SU products and papers for this one!

The Criteria to include on your layout for this stop is:
1. Use Aussie slang on your layout (You might find some ideas here: http://www.koalanet.com.au/australian-slang.html/)
2. Include an Aussie Image (eg, flag, map, etc.) or an Aussie Animal
3. Use a border punch or scallops – to represent the large iconic structures (opera house, uluru, rugged coastlines)

This is a photo of my niece and her friends on the train coming home from our day in Melbourne for her birthday in March!

I used the slang – “Big Smoke” for the city

Aussie Flag – I used the bottle cap from my kit and

Border Punch- I used scollops and faux ric- rac

This was a lot of fun and can’t wait to see which country our next stop over is!!!!
