Today's post is from my Scrapbook Classes last month. 

I have lots of photos from when I worked in Dilli, Timor Leste a couple of years ago.  Not only did I love my work, but I met some great people - local, defence, federal police, non-profit organisations & ex-pats, have a lot of great memories - funny & serious, saw many things - some I want to remember, while others I don't!!!!

The people in Timor Leste are wonderful, very happy & very laid back - my kinda lifestyle, which is probably why I fitted in so well.  It may also have had something to do with the fact that at the beginning I was one of very few ex-pat females in the country, blonde hair & freckles, so everyone got to know me.

As soon as I saw the DSP from the Seasonal Catalogue, I knew immediately that the papers would suit Timor.  It also has the colours of our uniform. 

I actually changed my ribbon since the photo was taken. "Circle Circus" stamp set goes great with this paper.  The journaling was created in MDS (My Digital Studio), with Chocolate Chip & Cherry Cobbler Inks & printed onto Very Vanilla Cardstock.
