January is a Wrap!

The new month is almost upon us!
And that means the big trip is just 10 days away!  Am I just a little bit freaked out?  Oh, yes!!!  It is a long way away.  The flight we have to undertake to get there seems mind boggling.  I am flying from MT to Denver, then to San Francisco and the big trek to Australia.  But still not done after that!  We have a little jaunt to Auckland, New Zealand- where we start our exciting adventure.  Most of our tours are booked, so we can just sit back and enjoy!  And the craziest thing-  my high school girl friend back in Ontario, Canada and her husband will be travelling there at the same time! We should have lots of stories to compare.
Thinking about what I have to pack.  Have a few things set aside.  Talking to my sister about every other day and sometimes every day!  She has a cold now after working her marathon last weekend!

We will travel the south east side of New Zealand, cross the Tasman Sea to Sydney, Australia.  Visit the southern cities of Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.  Spend a couple of days there and then fly to Brisbane.  Here I hope to meet up with my blogging friend, Tracey of Trace-Elementz!  Then we head north to Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.  And will be gone almost 5 weeks.

I got to scrap this photo one last time so each of the grandkids will have one for their albums.  It is such a cute photo!
Papers from Scrapworks, Pink Paislee, Kaiser Craft and a couple of scraps.

The red snowflakes are from Fancy Pants.  They were a long piece and I cut them apart.

Your upcoming vacation sounds wonderful. The weather in Australia is similar to our weather in South pack loads of summer clothes with light cardigans.
