Post by vickstar on Sat Sep 01, 2012 12:42 am

Congratulations on joining us for the first ever Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia Amazing Race!! On this first leg of the race, you will need to pack your bags, grab your passport and make your way to Sydney, ready for your flight to your first international destination!

While we are in Australia though, we can't pass up the opportunity to use some of the amazing Aussie icons as inspiration for a challenge!



From the prehistoric gorges of Kakadu National Park, to the white sails of the Sydney Opera House, Australia is a country as big as your imagination. Kick back on a white beach in Western Australia; lose yourself in the labyrinthine laneways of culture-rich Melbourne or be humbled by red desert sunsets over Uluru. Turn south to visit hundred year old giants that loom large in the forests of Tasmania or take on Sydney, and you'll soon realise Australia is a place to be discovered!

The landscapes shift from saffron to ochre beneath a seamless canopy of deep indigo, there are ancient Aboriginal cultures, dazzling salt pans, secretive reptiles, rough-cut canyons and pristine gorges. Fortunately, this lovely country also has many urban havens too.

Many Australians feel a strong connection to the land, regardless of their background, and in recent years, the fragile state of the environment has emerged as a universal equalizer. As much of the world tackles climate change at a theoretical level, Australians experience it at a micro level. This is the driest continent in the world, and water restrictions are now the norm in most cities. But Australians tend to face such difficulties with the same cocky spirit as anything else, and although the question of when will it rain/how will it rain/will it please bloody rain is a constant, they cope with little complaint.

So yep, it's a tough life down under. But only if you're averse to wide open skies, dramatic landscapes, countless activities, fine wining and dining, and friendly locals.



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

G'day Mate, our first challenge is based on AUSTRALIA!

Your sponsor for this leg of your journey is the wonderful Donna from 'Ah Scrap'! If you purchased a SBT50 Amazing Race kit you may have already noticed an Aussie bottlecap. This can be used to help you meet one of the criteria for this challenge.

The criteria to be include on your layout for this country are as follows:
1. Use Aussie slang on your layout (You might find some ideas here: http://www.koalanet.com.au/australian-slang.html/)
2. Include an Aussie Image (eg, flag, map, etc.) or an Aussie Animal
3. Use a border punch or scallops - to represent the large iconic structures (opera house, uluru, rugged coastlines)

Here is Donna's gorgeous sample layout:


The winner of this leg will receive a $15 voucher to use at Ah Scrap :yeah: :http://ahscrap.blogspot.com.au/

For 2 entries into the major prize draw please upload your layouts by Midnight on Monday Sept 10!! One point towards the major draw will still be awarded if you load your layout after this date, before the end of the race, however you won't be considered for the prize from Ah Scrap!

Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!!
