Sweet tea is such a staple of a southerners diet. Our Pastor was so surprised to find that Valerie had made him a pitcher of it when we visited her in Australia. We were visiting a wildlife reserve and she had packed a tailgate picnic for us which included the simple pleasure of sweet tea so far from home.

I surprised myself by being able to even spell "Eucalyptus"! I did put it through spellcheck to be sure I was right though! It was interesting to see so much of it in Australia. It is what the Koala's eat and the oil from the eucalyptus actually helped fuel the wildfires a couple years ago and made them worse. When you broke a leaf of it, you could smell the sweet scent.

This was a page inspired by Aymee Gandy aka A Southern Belle. I saw her exploding star and knew I wanted to give it a try. I didn't care for this patterned paper so I was willing to take a chance and do something different with it. If it didn't turn out right, I could just toss it and I wouldn't be bothered since I didn't like the paper. Well it turned out fine to me and I actually like the paper a bit better once I finished. Thanks Aymee!

The picture is a little lopsided but it looks great in real life! I love Sassafras Lass papers. They are always so bright and cheerful. I was glad I was able to use at least one picture of the lighthouse with the light on at night and Heather and Gary in it.

My daughter has taken a new position with the school system this year and she will be mentoring new teachers. We made 30 of these bags, filled with binder clips and fancy paper clips for the teachers that she will have. I like how they turned out, but let's just say that owl toenails are very small!!
