Exploring the neighbourhood

I live on the south east coast of Norway and this area is full of history. 20.000 years ago ice covered the coastline as we know it today, but due to Post-glacial rebound, the land was uplifted, and people could settle here.

I live in a small fjord, and it's nice to know the histories from this place: about the viking battles, ice export (!) to England, why the soil here is perfect for growing vegetables, and not cereals, etc etc. Luckily some of the people who live here, has large knowledge of the history, and like to share it with others. The photos on this layout is from one of these excursions.

Patterned papers & stickers: Pebbles. Alpha: AC. Buttons: unknown

The design for this layout is from this great sketch at My Creative Sketches:

and all the materials from My Creative Scrapbook kit club's February Creative kit.


I'm looking forward to joing the next excursion in the neighbourhood, and to learning more about this interesting area. Do you know your area well?
