A Whole Lot of Scrapping
How nice to wake up this morning and have electricity. Yesterday we were without electricity the whole day. It came back on at 16H30. Imagine a whole day without your computer, radio, Slice machine...need I go on!!! Roulien's challenge on Lets Scrap last Friday was to do a LO of Summer Holiday photos, using a Let's Scrap sketch. I struggled with this a bit. My mojo went M.I.A. Nebertheless, I finally finished it and here is the finished product. LO is called "Down by the River". Photos are from our December holiday last year when we were all together at Sundays River.
Finally I got to photograph the pride of my life at the moment. My sweet peas that I have managed to grow. The COLORFUL CREATIONS challenge was to use the words "If I...." in the title or journalling. My title is "If I .....Plant the seeds spring will be beautiful" I enjoyed this LO. Had to think really hard about what to do and how to do the title.
The photos for the last LO today have been in my box of things to do and I just did not know what to do with them. Enter COLORFUL CREATIONS. Challenge ~ World changers. Straight away I knew my photos were at last going to be scrapped. Proves everything comes to those who wait.!!!! The bigger of the two photos is Nelson Mandela's statue in Mandela Square in Sandton. Took Dorian on the Gautrain and could not help myself acting like a tourist ~ just had to snap a photo of the statue. Second photo is when THE GREAT MAN made a surprise appearance at the 2010 football world cup final. Warrick (my son) was at the final and managed to take the photo when Mr Mandela came out on the field.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Have a fun filled weekend, enjoy whatever it is you have planned!!! To all my South African scrapping friends attending the convention ENJOY!!!!!!
I started scrapping three years ago, and I'm happy to say that I am ADDICTED. I love this hobby with a passion. I am married to my soulmate Gus, I have two children, Warrick and Kerry-Leigh, a daughter-in-law Denise and two really cute (a biased Granny's point of view) grand children called Dorian and Claudia.I also have two really cute dogs. Queen Gabrielle and Jorge. They are pekingese and are such a big part of our family. Dorian and Claudia provide me with a lot of inspiration.
I love the bush, love to cook, read a bit and love just chilling with my friends. I count my blessings everyday.
