Getting ready to ship.......

Now the fun has begun.....

Finalizing our lives here in Australia....

Our schedule is to ship our belongings on 20th Feb and leave Australia on 5th March....



This was our family/games room last week.....











This is it now!!!!!.......



All my scrappy goodies ready for their long journey to Scotland.....

So, I still have my supplies for a couple of weeks - then gone.....

Meanwhile, I thought I would show you this layout I made for part of the Stuck On U Sketches DT, from which I withdrew in October 2011 when things got pretty hectic with selling the house etc.....

This sketch was #68 dated November 11th 2011. I had nearly finished the layout, but not quite....



It is finished now....LOL



Papers are Sassafrass Lass "Indie Girl".....



The wee birds are a Whiff of Joy stamp "Love Birds" which I have coloured (rather badly) with Distress Inks - Faded Jeans, Weathered Wood, Frayed Burlap, Pumice Stone, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters and Dried Marigold (did I really use that many colours?)

Me thinks Timmy's new release of Distress Ink Markers (in 37 colours) will improve things immensely, can't wait to get my hands on them....



The beautiful stitched brads are from Basic Grey....



Kaiser rhinestones....
Velour ribbon from stash....
Flowers from Prima....



Bazzill cardstock....
We R Memory Keepers tag in the hessian pocket....



No title as yet, until I decide which photo's to use....







Why not head over to Stuck On U Sketches today - they have just released their newest sketch, and you get two weeks to play.....

I sure do miss being on the Design Team.....

In other news....

This recent layout of beautiful daughter was for sketch challenge #63 over at Sketchabilities a couple of weeks ago....



It was picked up as one of the Featured Five.....

Was I chuffed or wot......

Thanks to the girls over at Sketchabilities for the honour....

Hugs for now
