I'm Surrounded By A Million People

This was the first photo I took of Dave’s adventure
It was taken the morning he left
I dragged him outside on a cold morning and made him sit with his Lonely Planet book
Funnily enough it is the last of my photos, about his trip, to scrap with
I was inspired by the April 15 sketch at Stuck Sketches and used pieces from the April Polka Dot Whimsy kit

Love bikes, love tape… the Tim Holtz tape is a sure winner

used some of the water colours that used to be Dave’s Grandmas

and journalled my thoughts

So Dave is now back and I’ve uploaded his photos, approx. 200, he has told me he intends to scrap some
I suggested maybe a little scrap retreat for him and I…
We will see!!
I will leave you with just selection of what he snapped

  7. Hi Helen :) Nope I am Aussie born and bred :) South Africa is on my 'wanna visit one day' list though :) Dave's Dad is originally from Holland and he migrated to Australia when he was 20 and met Dave's Mum here.
