SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our house has SOLD....... Yay

Scotland here we come......

We have been zipping around Perth, taking lots of final photo's, so I could make this special layout before I have to say goodbye to my scrapping supplies for three, THREE, months, while they ship to Scotland.....



The current sketch over at Sketches In Thyme was the perfect sketch to showcase a lot of photo's - 15 to be exact, and the panoramic view of Perth at the bottom.....





Papers are Teresa Collins "World Traveler" and "Travel Ledger" collections....



The "Perth" chipboard title with the emblem of Western Australia, the Black Swan, is by RW Laser Cuts, which I have stamped with the Kaiser "Postmarks" acrylic stamp....

The suitcases chipboard is by Scrap FX, which I have coloured with Distress Inks - Frayed Burlap, Brushed Corduroy and Barn Door, and a gold pen for the metal locks etc.....



The "Goodbye" letters are by American Crafts Thickers "Emerald Flocked Black"....



We will be leaving Perth sometime in early March - settlement on the house is due on 24th February and once we have settled our affairs here, and said goodbye to our many friends, we will be off....



Ribbon and lace are from my stash....





Here are the photo's.....







So, as one door closes, another opens....

Just to organize our shipping and sell off most of our furniture, a busy few weeks ahead, and sadly not much scrapping. Oh well.....

I still have a few projects to post that I have been making over the past few weeks, that should keep my blog going for a wee while, and then it will become a photo gallery for a while...LOL

See you next time....

Hugs

WOW! Congratulations. I am sure you are excited about moving. Love your layout. I am guessing it feels so good and so sad at the same time. Looking forward to see you back when you settle down in Scotland. Welcome to the neighbourhood (a kind of large neighbourhood, but still LOL)

Big congrats on the sale of the house, Jane. Love this dedication to Perth page. Even though this is what you want, it is always a bit hard to say good-bye to sweet memories! Until then ..
