Another sunny day in Queensland (LOL)

It poured down again today, and the prediction is more rain coming on the weekend.  We went to Dreamworld and White Water World yesterday, and guess what? rained!  I checked Foxtel's Weather Channel tonight, and they predict rain for the rest of the month.
I had to detail a car today that had been washed off the road in the flooding.  There were no signs warning the road was under water, so he thought the  water wasn't deep.  When he realised, he tried to reverse and the car just started to float.  He actually floated over the two metre marker.  Luckily the current wasn't strong and he was able to get out of the car, and get to safety on a piece of higher ground.  He was stuck there for a few hours with some other motorists  who helped him push his car back onto the road. He really was extremely lucky.
I don't get much car detailing work in this sort of weather.  I suppose we've got to look on the bright side and think at least I'll get more scrapbooking done!

Here's a few layouts for you....

 I embossed the metal foil after I applied it to my chipboard and Alcohol Inked it.  Then I applied Stazon to the raised areas.  I used Crackle Accents in the center to add even more texture.

And some tags  (These were for a challenge, but unfortunately the site closed down due to illness)
 The first set all have recycled elements (from this years Christmas cards) as part of the challenge criteria.
