How Much can a Koala Bear?

Here is my entry for the 'Amazing Race' Stop #1 at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia. On this first leg of the race, I will need to pack my bags, grab my passport and make my way to Sydney, ready for my flight to my first international destination!

The criteria to be include on your layout for Australia are as follows:
1. Use Aussie slang on your layout - I used an Aussie phrase 'How much can a Koala Bear?'
2. Include an Aussie Image - I used and Aussie Flag pin
3. Use a border punch or scallops - to represent the large iconic structures - I used the Martha Stewart 'Daisy Fan' edge punch to represent the Opera House since we are in Sydney
4. An Aussie bottlecap  - Homemade Koala bottle cap (unfortunately I do not have a kit!)

How much can a Koala Bear?

Yes! those are real gum leaves that I Modge Podged!!!

Whenever I'm in Sydney I always head for Taronga Park Zoo. 
I was lucky enough to get a photo of some iconic Australian Wildlife.
Here is Nathan (Magpie), Jarred DS (Koala with baby on his back!)
and Ryan (Lorikeet)

That Koala is so CHEEKY poking out his tongue!!

Here is a close up....

I must say that I was a bit dissapointed on my arrival at the end of the first stop.
No Phil Keoghan or Grant Bowler to hug and kiss!!! lol
