Hippy girl and floods.........

This is a layout I made using Kaisercrafts August release "Hippy Girl" range of papers and embellishments. It is such a biright happy range, and i thought it was the perfect layout to welcome spring.

and a closeup.....

Spring has been a long long time coming for us here in Victoria. It has been overwhelming the amount of rain we have had. Our small town faced the threat of floods last weekend. Our tiny little creek swelled to a river the size of the Murray. But it was amazing to see the way the locals all pulled together, people were out in the poaring rain, helping with sandbagging, and preparing food to feeds the volunteers,and anything else we could do. We were very lucky that the flood started to receed before any major damage was done, there was a few stores and houses flooded, but all in all it wasnt as bad as they had predicted.

But while our town was lucky, our friends werent quite as fortunate. They live in Creswick, near Ballarat, and they lost everything in the flood that occurred there the day before. Their house was destroyed, and so was their business. All the houses in their street were destroyed :( .... Its a terrible thing to have happened, and it will take them a long time to get back to where they were, but, no one was hurt, and they will rebuild.... They have alot of support........

have a great weekend everyone :) And please leave me a comment :)
