THREE MUSES 59 - FLYING CARPET TRAVELS

Let me take you on a journey to Taipo in New Zealand where on February 28 this year we were caught up in an evacuation to high ground following an earthquake in Chile and a threatened Tsunami for the coast of New Zealand.  I thought the event deserved a journal page and here it is.

Mostly my own work, however the Wave clipart is courtesy of Arthur's Nature Clipart, whilst the fonts are : journaling hand, tecton pro and teen.

And here is a little look at what else we did on our holiday.

Thank you for looking.
