On Our Travels with Darcy's Postcard Challenge - Norway

As I was researching I came across a page with a cut out paper doll and a set of national costumes for Norway. That was decision made. I loved these cut out dolls as a child and spent hours cutting out and dressing them. I have dressed her in one of the costumes and the rest are in the pocket of my page. She is standing in front of the flag which has been distressed a bit. The page is a view of "Cold Mountain" at Dusk and the fish is one of the King Cod that come to spawn in Lake Lofoton. The pocket is one of the many beautiful fiords.
Thank you all for the kind comments you have made during this challenge and for taking the time to come and look at my postcards. This challenge is such fun, thank you Darcy.
