More floods for Queensland

My heart goes out to all those affected by the floods in SE Qld.  (They are saying on tv that the first wall of water that hit Toowoomba was 8m high.)  Many areas are being evacuated right now, as the flood waters move down river.  For those of you who read my blog from overseas, the extreme flash floods that happened yesterday/last night are within 140km of my house.  We are lucky we are on higher ground.  The scary thing is it's still raining, and there is a king tide tomorrow, which will cause the river levels to rise even more.  7700 properties have been identified as being at risk from these floods.
We've been told we our suburb is cut off, so are going out to check/buy some food supplies.

Back again, ....we are cut off on two roads, & almost cut off from the township, but the other road is fine.

I've got a few layouts I've done in the past couple of days. 

This layout is using a Page Maps sketch for Paper Secrets Dec/Jan Sketch Challenge.

This is the same creek that was in my "flooding" picture last week.

And a card using only scraps.  The ribbon is recycled from a Christmas gift, and the other bits were still on my table from other projects.


  1. Tina - keep us up to date on what is happening near you. Thinking of you and hoping all turns out well.

  2. My prayers are going out to you. I can only imagine how frightening this must be.

  3. We are fine, but send prayers for the thousands whos homes are threatened as the Brisbane River floods. They have warned 6500 homes will be flooded, and another 16,500 will be partially affected.

  4. My thoughts will be with all those affected by the floods. Thanks for keeping up posted. I'm so glad you are still ok.

  5. thanks for visiting my blog! your blog has lots of beautiful ideas and inspirations!

  6. Even in France we hear everyday in the news about the flood in Australia. It seems horrible, it's really frightening. I can only imagine how the owner of flooded houses could feel :(

    Anyway, I love your LOs <3

  7. I forgot to mention yesterday how I was digging your layouts! You had to know I loved 'em right? right?

  8. The floods are just so scary. We have been watching the news everyday praying for those who are affected.

    This is a gorgeous layout...and what a memory for you to remember the creek as it should be.

  9. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the people of Queensland.
