12 Apostles

It's reveal day once again at My Creative Sketches, and here is my DT layout, inspired by this lovely sketch by Liz Chidester.

I used papers from My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found Two collection for the layout, with embellishments from Prima Marketing and KaiserCraft.

I especially love the darling little bird's nest from Prima!

The photos were taken during our vacation in Melbourne last year, when we visited the Twelve Apostles, a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road.

A little history - the site was known as the Sow and Piglets until 1922, when it was renamed to The Apostles for tourism purposes. The formation eventually became known as the Twelve Apostles, despite only ever having nine stacks. Susceptible to erosion from the waves, a 50 metre tall stack collapsed on 3 July 2005, leaving eight remaining, which is what is seen in these photos. :)

Now, head on over to the MCS blog, and check out the lovely prize up for grabs this month, as well as for more great inspiration! Thanks for dropping by! :)
