That was that theme for last week's Aussie Scrap Source Generation Gap reader's challenge. I chose to scrap about our family trips to Oberon to gather forest mushrooms and wild blackberries.
One of the things I looked forward to most as a child was our annual trip to the NSW Central Tablelands in search of forest mushrooms and wild blackberries at the beautiful Oberon pine forests during the Easter break. It was so much fun to spend the day collecting bucket loads of the Saffron Milk Cap mushrooms that were often hidden under pine needles on the forest floor, making sure you didn't pick up the wrong sort which can be poisonous, or eating juicy blackberries straight from the bush. Several years ago we started making taking the trip with our children and they absolutely love it and also look forward to it every year.
I realised after sending through my pics that I totally forgot to include any journalling on my page, and so I've added a little map of the area as well as some memories on a couple of tags that slide under the frame and created a bit of a forest setting by free cutting a few trees and dug out some 'vintage' Sassafras Lass that I've been hoarding for ages :)
