Scrapbooking 2021 | Honeymoon Album – New Zealand

Three more 12×12 pages – these are from the New Zealand leg:

Friends took us on an overnight road trip to Rotorua and en route we stopped at a small place called Waitomo. It appears to be famous for two things – its glow worms and Rottweiler Angora Giant Rabbits … 🙂

Did you notice the small Kiwi? He’d been on the original scrapbook page and I felt he needed to be on the new one as well. 🙂

I took the photo of the cave from the Internet because when we visited in January 2006, photography was not allowed. Sitting in a boat … in a flooded cave … in the dark … looking at the ceiling … was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

This page sits alongside a divided pocket page about the caves.

After the caves, we stopped at the side of the road and went into a shed. The shed turned out to be a shearing shed and the animals being shorn were the biggest rabbits I have ever seen. It was also one of the funniest things I have ever seen.

The rabbits are shorn every three months to prevent them over heating and once shorn, they also get to mate. 🙂 The rabbits did not appear to be in any distress during the shearing process.

This page also sits alongside a divided pocket page about the rabbits.

This page is self-explanatory – The Brainy One and me at the top of Auckland’s Sky Tower. It was the first time we’d ever stood on a glass floor. Our friend waited at the bottom because she’s afraid of heights. (This is an exact copy of the Melbourne spread – I had duplicate stash (Pinkfresh Studio’s Days of Splendor range) and really liked the finished design. 🙂 )

  1. I guess those rabbits were happy to be sheared as they knew what was coming afterwards 😉
    What an amazing trip you had – so many happy memories. This is going to be a fantastic album!

  2. Fabulous re-made pages & I like that embellishment from the original was kept – he’s quite interesting as are the tales of the large rabbits. I’d be on the ground with your friend gazing up at the Sky Tower.

      1. LOL – I have been to the CN Tower, even went up to the top but not out on the deck. I don’t think my back left contact with the wall at any time!
