Digi: In Deep Week 4

Well, we've reached the last lesson of Digi: In Deep. The last LO we created was another 2-pager, which couldn't get anymore custom made if you ask me. We extracted part of a picture, used overlays, brushes and made our own mosaic background and shape. Click on the image to enlarge it to get a closer look.

Today my BIL and SIL are celebrating their 8th anniversary today. I know this so well, as the got married 4 weeks after Ruben was born and we were living in Portland, OR at the time, which meant we couldn't attend the wedding as they were getting married in England. Happy Anniversary to you!

Supplies used: carstock Bazzill Basics, PPs Luxe Design and ?, Sizzix hearts die-cut and rub-ons, felt Queen&Co., paperfrill Doodlebug, black marker.

Eight years ago we lived in the US, but also that same year we moved to the UK. And in September 2006 we moved to Australia. The longest David and I have lived in the same place is 6 years in the UK (this, however, doesn't imply that it's the best place to live!) and that's where we'll be heading again in July.

My blogging might become a bit erratic from now until September, as we need to start preparing for the move. From July everything we own, with the exception of what we can take in our suitcases, will be on a 40ft container sailing the oceans for 7 weeks, before it will reach shore again in England to wait for custom clearance. That will mean no scrapbooking supplies whatsoever, unless I choose the wear the same clothes for 8 weeks and stuff my suitcase with scrapbooking supplies. The dilemma I face is, will I be organised enough to make all cards for birthdays, etc. up until September before everything gets packed up, or will I for a few months buy them?

Lovely anniversary card and wonderful layout. The techniques of the digi layout look quite difficult. I really love the photos that you used.
I know that you are organised enough to make the cards (you are so much more organised than I am!), but you may not have enough time and peace to work on the cards. There are so many other things that you have to do and arrange. I know it is not easy to give up everything in Australia, but it is wonderful to have you, David and the kids closer. We should organise a yearly scrap retreat. LOL!
