Lets Scrap DT challenge 133: Journalling

Eniko has posted her challenge at Let's Scrap for the next 2 weeks.  

In this challenge she requires the following:

For this challenge, I want you to focus on storytelling. Choose your photos for your layout wisely, and as you make decisions about what to place on your pages, keep in mind the 5 W's...Who, What, Where, When, and Why...of the story. Each element that you add to your layout should contribute to the telling of the story. So here are the rules:
1.) WHO -Somewhere in your journaling, identify who the people in your photos are. (Future generations will want to know.)
2.) WHAT -Choose a Title that answers the "what" of your story ("What is this Layout about?") -in a minimum of words.  -It doesn't have to be literal, it can be whimsical, or even the title of a song, but it should give the viewer a snapshot of what you intend the focus of your layout to be, or at least pique the viewer’s interest.
3.) WHERE & WHEN -Record where and when the event, moment, outing or memory occurred.
4.) WHY -Most importantly, in your journaling, answer the question "why?"...this is crucial to story- telling. Your journaling should reveal why you selected this particular story to tell. Why is this story important to you? -It gives the viewer an insight into who you are and what you care about.
BONUS!!!! Flowers are such a gloriously beautiful part of our lives that they deserve to be celebrated! If the theme of your layout has to do with flowers in any way, you will get your name in the draw a second time.

So, of course I had to take part in the challenge.. however, I didn't do a flower layout, but did get a lot of journalling in on my layout..:

As usual, we have to use a LS sketch, so I used a sketch from 7 March 2012 for my layout.  I had too many photos so also made an extra flap on left page to include more pictures..
I also hand journalled on my layout.  
The journalling is all about our fantastic trip to the Healesville Sanctually in Melbourne.  It is a Sanctuary for a wide variety of Australian Wildlife. We got our very first glimpse of kangaroo's, koala's, tasmanian devils, dingo's, wallabies and even a few platapus.  Was so much fun !

Left and right pages and closeups:

Thanks for looking.. hope you get time to join the challenge to.

Hugs, Mich
