Rosebery Provincial Park.


1-DSC_9945

After we left Gerrard, we camped for three nights at Rosebery Provincial Park, near New Denver, in British Columbia, Canada.

1-DSC_0014

Rosebery Provincial Park is located just north of New Denver, on Highway 6. To the west, across Slocan Lake, is the magnificent Valhalla Provincial Park. Tucked along the banks of Wilson Creek, this park has an intimate, forested creek setting that offers secluded camping for overnight travellers or visitors seeking more adventure.” – B.C. Parks.

1-DSC_0015

Even though it was over a weekend, we had a lovely spot by the creek.

1-DSC_0017

It was peaceful at Rosebery Provincial Park, which is a great place for children. The campsite is self registration, had firewood for sale, fresh water (the water pump was difficult to operate), no sani dump, but we got fresh water and used the sani dump at Centennial Campground in New Denver.

Searching for ghost towns.


1-DSC_9884

After we left the Arrow Lake Ferry we drove to Trout Lake, BC, where we had hoped to camp, but there were too many people, even though it was during the week, so we drove  on to Gerrard. The distance to Gerrard from Arrow lakes is only about 29 k.m., but it is a gravel road and not easy with a camper.

We missed the turnoff to Gerrard, so we boondocked nearby for one night and found Gerrard the next day.

1-DSC_9888
I would recommend anyone planning to visit ghost towns, to make sure of the locations before you leave, as they are hard to find. I found a great blog post after we got home. A Trip to Trout Lake has beautiful photos, directions and interesting information.

“The birth of one to three naked, blind cubs occurs during the hibernation period of January to February. The female does not emerge from the den until the cubs’ eyes open and they can follow her. Vocalization of the cubs often consists of shrill howls; adult bears more often “woof.”” –The Canadian Encyclopedia

Arrow Lake Ferry.


1-DSC_9859

We went camping for a few days in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. We took a ferry from Shelter Bay to Galena bay, in British Columbia, Canada. Here we are waiting at the ferry terminal, which has bath-rooms, picnic tables and a lovely view of the lake.

“The Arrow Lakes in British Columbia, Canada, divided into Upper Arrow Lake and Lower Arrow Lake, are widenings of the Columbia River. The lakes are situated between theSelkirk Mountains to the east and the Monashee Mountains to the west. Beachland is fairly rare, and is interspersed with rocky headlands and steep cliffs. Mountain sides are heavily forested, and rise sharply to elevations around 2,600 metres.” – Wikipedia

We went boondocking again for a few days near Sundre, Alberta, Canada in the Bearberry Valley at a place we call Horsey Meadows. The weather was perfect, with very few bugs and the dogs loved it. The Feral horses and some cows came to visit us as usual.

“The Wild Horses of Alberta Society (WHOAS) was formed as a nonprofit society in 2002 after public outcry over the destruction of several wild horses that lived in the foothills and mountains of the Eastern slopes of Alberta. For the past 13 years WHOAS has been working on solutions for wild horse population management and has always felt that the Alberta wild horses require proper management and protection.”– Wild Horses of Alberta

Scrapbook planning.



I do most of my scrapbook planning while camping, as you can see my file and notebooks are beside me. I have found that the better I plan a page, the better it comes out. I scrapbook mostly in winter, (this is Canada you know). When I scrapbook, I don’t want to waste the time by searching for ideas, printing photos or going shopping for supplies. I actually enjoy the planning process a lot. I go through magazine articles and books and choose layouts that I like, file the magazine articles and scan or take photos of the one’s in books. I plan my layouts using my Scrap-book Page Planner.

Here is a photo of one of my magnetic boards. I have two big ones and one smaller one.


Here I have two different layouts on the board, “Timeless ” and “Baby in the Garden“. I attach the papers, photos, ribbons, embellishments, etc. with small magnets.

Flower Girl”, on my planning board, includes sketches, inspiration (scraplift) and some of the supplies like lace, patterned paper, etc.

Wedding Day”

Mermaid on my planning board.

My inspiration board for “Retroon my planning board.

Scraplift, sketches, etc. for Van Ellewee Project” on my planning board.

1-DSC_0001

Family Gathering on my planning board.

I sometimes gather supplies, photos, etc. in Iris® 12″x12″ Stackable Storage Boxes.

1-DSCN3307

I like to prepare and gather all the scrapbooking paraphernalia before I start on a layout. These are some of these wood mounted rubber-stamps I used for Altered Tags.

I file magazine articles that I like and these are in alphabetical order. I have many categories like scraplift, embellishments, alphabets, techniques, babies, children, Christmas, Fall, vintage, styles, seasons, holidays, travel, etc.

These wooden shelves hold my notebooks, files, craft magazines, books, binders, etc.

1-DSCN3327

Index cards.

1-DSCN3325

Some of my index cards.

I cut these photo, title, borders, embellishments, etc. templates from opaque flexible plastic cutting board sheets as used for cooking.
I got them at a Dollar-store.
They are marked with a permanent marker.
I then punched a hole in them, with a hole punch and hung them from a shower curtain ring. I think they will be handy when I design pages.

My Inspiration for “Fallwas “Autumn” from the book “How to scrapbook”.

My inspiration for my “Cowboys” layout was “City slickers” from a Creative Imaginations magazine advertisement.

1-City Slickers

My Sketch for “City Slickers” on grid paper.

For inspiration, I used “The gift of friendship” from the book: “Hand lettering made easy” by Debra Beagle as a scraplift for “Distant Relatives“.

The Sketch from the book “Hand lettering made easy” by Debra Beagle which I made in Adobe Photoshop

Some of my Blue Embellishments, tools and supplies which I used to make my Blog graphics.

The planning sketch for “Sushi Hirowas made in Adobe Photoshop, C3 Extended, first with grid-lines showing (click on thumb-nail). See next image without grid lines.

Sushi Hiro

Sketch for “Falllayout done in Adobe Photoshop

These are one of my notice boards which I also use for inspiration.

My inspiration board.

My kits are in 12″ x 12″ clear Expandable Paper Organizers and a plastic file holder. See next photo.


Some of the kits I made up for themes such as Christmas, Birthdays, Beaches, Easter, Fall, Halloween, Snow, Winter, etc.

I also use Trading Card Sleeves for planning. I got this idea from Ali Edwards.

I also attach my finished scrapbook layouts on my magnetic board with magnets when I have to photograph them. I use a flash diffuser to prevent the camera’s flash  from reflecting on the photos. I remove the magnets in Adobe Photoshop with the clone stamp tool. Click here for a Tutorial. Corel Paint ShopPro has a Clone Brush. I correct perspective with Adobe Photoshop. Here is a great Tutorial on how to do Perspective Distortion Correction. The example above is called “East Indian.”

The backgrounds and headers for my blog are made the same way.

Buddhist Temple, Richmond, B.C.


temple-header

“To date, the Temple is the most exquisite example of traditional Chinese architecture in Canada. In many ways, it is like a piece of art straight out of the Chinese past, as it resembles any authentic temple that can be found along the banks of the Yangtze River in China, where one of the world’s oldest civilizations originated. The main focus of the exterior of the Temple is its palatial roof, which is similar in structure to that of any royal edifice within the Forbidden City of Beijing, China. The roof is covered entirely with red-orange porcelain tiles imported from China. As strikingly intriguing as the facade of the Temple is its artistic interior, which houses artifacts with superlative Chinese workmanship in sculpture, painting, carpentry and embroidery. Traditional Chinese art and culture are evident in the majestic Buddha/Bodhisattva statues, exquisite shrines, enormous silk paintings of the sixteen Arahats, and the spectacular ceramic murals.: – Buddhist Temple

Kananaskis.


1-DSC_9734
Friends of ours who we have known for almost 30 years,  originally also from South-Africa recently spent a few wonderful days with us in Calgary. They visited us before in 2010. We took them to see another part of  Kananaskis on a cloudy day.

Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.
Friend’s photo.

The large, spiraled horns of ram bighorn sheep are distinctive. Bighorn sheep are brown to grayish brown in color, with light under parts, a white muzzle and an obvious, light rump patch. Ewes and young rams have spike-like, curved horns. Bighorns are the largest of all north American wild sheep. Adult rams weigh up to 135 kg (300 lb.), but adult ewes are much smaller, averaging 70 kg (150 lb.). Sheep have soft hooves with hard outer rims that give them good footing on precarious ledges. However, the two parts of the hoof are not independently movable. Thus, bighorns are not as agile as mountain goats on difficult terrain. Bighorns do move quickly over rocky mountain slopes when alarmed. The eyesight of bighorn sheep is acute; they can detect movement over a kilometer away. The rut occurs from November to December. Lambs are born the following spring. Sheep are mainly grazers, feeding on grasses and forbs. They may also browse on alpine willows. They make frequent use of mineral or salt licks. Bighorns spend their summers high in the alpine zone on grass-covered slopes. In winter they may migrate a considerable distance to reach south or southwest-facing slopes where snow cover is minimal. The Fish and Wildlife Division estimates the provincial population (in Sept.) to be about 5,800 animals. This estimate is based on population counts in selected areas and hunter harvest information. ” –Alberta wow.

1-DSC_1752 The eerie calls of Common Loons echo across clear lakes of the northern wilderness. Summer adults are regally patterned in black and white. In winter, they are plain gray above and white below, and you’ll find them close to shore on most seacoasts and a good many inland reservoirs and lakes. Common Loons are powerful, agile divers that catch small fish in fast underwater chases. They are less suited to land, and typically come ashore only to nest.” – All About Birds.

“Alberta’s Kananaskis is the Rockies best kept secret. To the southwest of Banff National Park, ‘K Country’ as it is known, is an unspoiled paradise. Full of picture perfect mountain scenery, wildlife and flora, Kananaskis can be visited at any time of the year. There are excellent cross-country skiing trails, which become excellent hiking trails in the spring. Whether you camp, stay in a lodge or in a luxury hotel, all the facilities in ‘K Country’ are of an excellent standard.” – Alberta’s Kananaskis.

1-DSC_1755

History: Kananaskis is said to be an Indian word meaning “meeting of the waters”. The Kananaskis river and passes were named by Captain John Palliser, who led a British Scientific Expedition through this area around 1850.” – Bivouac.com

1-DSC_1758 Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.

1-DSC_1760

“Rocky Mountain bighorns inhabit the mountains from Canada south to New Mexico. They are relatives of goats, and have balance-aiding split hooves and rough hoof bottoms for natural grip. These attributes, along with keen vision, help them move easily about rocky, rugged mountain terrain.” – National Geographic.

1-DSC_1761

“Wild sheep live in social groups, but rams and ewes typically meet only to mate. Rams live in bachelor groups and females live in herds with other females and their young rams. When fall mating arrives, rams gather in larger groups and ram fighting escalates. Usually only stronger, older rams (with bigger horns) are able to mate.” – National Geographic. 1-DSC_1762 “Lambs are born each spring on high, secluded ledges protected from bighorn predators such as wolves, coyotes, and mountain lions—though not the golden eagles which target lambs. Young can walk soon after birth, and at one week old each lamb and its mother join others in a herd. Lambs are playful and independent, though their mothers nurse them occasionally for four to six months.”- National Geographic.

1-DSC_1763

Bighorn sheep have brown coats and a white rump patch. In the autumn, the coat is rich and glossy, but by the spring it becomes faded and grayish. The pelage is never fine and woolly, as in domestic sheep, and is instead short and coarse. Once a year, in June or July, sheep shed their hair and can have a scruffy appearance with patches of matted hair until the new coat grows in..” – Canadian Geographic.

Horsey Meadows.


1-DSC_9702

We went boondocking again for a few days near Sundre, Alberta, Canada in the Bearberry Valley. It was the second time that we camped at this spot, the previous time was in the Spring of 2016. It was very quite and we only saw one truck loaded with quads pass by.

Feral Horses as seen from our campsite.

1-DSC_1712

“Wild horses” or “feral horses”? The debate rages on in Alberta, Canada. The provincial government believes that the wild horses west of Sundre, Alberta are the descendants of domestic horses used in logging and guiding/outfitting operations in the early 1900’s. The Wild Horse Society of Alberta (WHOAS) believes that they are of Spanish descent. WHOAS is so sure of this that they have sent away DNA samples to the University of Texas, Equine Genetics Lab for testing.” – Wild Horses of Alberta
