Looking Ahead

When I received the Blue Bazaar Newsletter the other day I was instantly inspired by their challenges for the National Scrapbooking Day Cyber Crop.

I have been mulling on a layout about moving for quite some time now and it all came together in this layout for Blue Bazaar's Mixed Media challenge to use Pens/Markers in a project of my choice.

Here it is.

I have lived in at least 15 houses in three different countries over my life so far. I would've said I was a city girl but I have lived in the country for almost 20 years now, which is nearly half my life. The plan is that we are moving back to Sydney, God willing, in October. I am not really sure how I feel about that. Excited? Yes. Nervous? Definitely. I'm, seeing it as a challenge to move 20 years of stuff and 7 children and making the city my home again. I will certainly miss all my friends.

For the layout I used: ColorMates cardstock; Uniball Gel Pens in black, white, yellow, and orange; Zig Writer - Platimun and Zig Millennium Pen - Pure Black; Maya Road Fresh Chipboard Heart and Home and Noah Alphabet; and VersaCube Pinecone.

For the knowing of you...
Spot Sydney Tower, the cross on the hill in Uralla, our house, the washing line with 7 nappies on the line (representing the 7 children born in the country) and the autumn trees.
