The Riverboat Postman

Another page I created at the crop day I attended yesterday.  This time I used a sketch from The Memory Nest
I used one of my favourite collection of papers from Stampin' Up! (r) called Maritime Designer Series paper - only little bits and pieces of it left now.  The photo was taken atop the Ferry as it cruised along the beautiful Hawkesbury River, near to where I live.  This cruise was one of my birthday gifts to my sister.
Life is different on the river, it was a time to relax take in the view, have morning tea and a ploughman's lunch as we cruised up and down the river delivering mail to settlements and homes along the Hawkesbury.
Here is the sketch:

Thank you for looking, Margaret.
p.s. Just found out that my layout of Aurora was a January winner over at The Memory Nest. Thank you so much. And to think I nearly threw out the background paper I created!!!
