Who's afraid of the 'crocky' trail....



I wanted to participate in the scrapping the music challenge and decided to use the lyric 'just hanging' with this picture of me and a group of friends taken after we'd just completed the crocky trail in Chester. It is an outdoor assault course which has rope swings, hamster wheels, mazes, cargo nets and is sooo much fun! You always go away at the end covered in mud and usually soaking wet so its not for the faint hearted! This picture was the first time I'd been and I fell off a rope swing into the water and had to be fished out!





I wanted this page to capture the mood of the crocky trail which is crazy fun, splattered mud and being outdoors. I punched out a cork flower for the centre of my flower in the top left. I splattered lots of paint and cut out a splat from sticky shimmery foil. I wrote the journalling in gold pen and then highlighted key words in green to tell the story.



I am so excited because I haven't been to the crocky trail for about 7 years but me, my sisters and their husbands are all planning to go over the easter bank holiday weekend, I can just imagine how much fun we will have and how dirty we will get! can't wait!
