Latest layout{young love}

This is my latest layout. Was this a challenge!!
Have you ever started a layout and at the end feeling so mixed up??
I started off wanting to capture the colours of the photo, then I decided NO, tried to get the little bit of red in the green printed paper,NO, also not working, in the end,the result??
 A whole mixed up page, with the orange in the photo and the red in the paper!lol
I am seriously seeking some new stock! Urgently!! Any on-line stores in mind??
Have you seen the latest of Bo Bunny?? To die for!
The story of this layout:
Megan and her friend, Hanno, they have been friends since grade 8. Kind of dating,school love,what would you call it? But you get the picture? We really like the boy, but now Megan called it off!!
Can you believe it? For now obvious reasons, she says they just get along better, when they are just friends. Teens!!
Hope you enjoy the weekend!!

What I read. . .my share with you

I took this picture at the wrong time of day, but I heard this noise from my scraproom's window and went outside, at the back of our house, we have this tree bush, it is now full in bloom and full of bees, it was them, buzzing and zooming.

So, when I have the time, I read, many of the times I read magazines.
I bought the new Finesse and the Fitness magazines and in there I found this:
They say in the Fitness:
1 Piece of Cheesecake= 1hour and a half on the treadmill=600 calories
1 Big Mac, fries and a Coke= 6.1 hours on the treadmill=2200 calories
Cappuccino=31mins on the treadmill=190 calories
Mugg and Bean muffin=2 hours on the treadmill=700calories

In the Finesse I read:
1.  Change all Negative into Positive
2.  Say Thank You for EVERYTHING
3.  Do something special for someone and don't tell them about it
4.  Get enough sleep, even if it means you must take a cat nap in the afternoon
5.  Forgive someone, it takes up way too much energy to walk with anger.
6.  Forgive yourself, grief hurts the soul.
7.  Ask yourself: How important is it really?
8.  Remember to love somebody, does not mean JUMP, whenever they tell you to.
9.  Ask yourself: What can I do for somebody else?
10.  Laugh often, it makes you look younger and healthier.

And from me: HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

My Share of Spring Day!

This is my share of Spring Day.  On  Spring day, we also celebrate Casual Day, we dress up in whatever you usually DON'T wear!lol!!
First of all, I want to show you my hat I decorated for the day, took one of my mom's hats and dressed it up with paper flowers, made with Mr Price tissue paper.
Then, my favorites of the day! This is Linda, all in Blue Bull colours. She is one of our newest members, and as you can see she is all game for sports!!

Next up is Haylery, she got herself these Soccer World Cup Undies and decided to wear it on top!! She only joins the Pilates classes in the morning.
We all enjoyed the morning with Cupcakes and Champagne. No exercising was done that morning.

I had a FULL Spinning Class.
I went to have my hair done.
Played with my new computer.
Visited with my mom, who is having her Birthday, we are all having dinner together tonight.
Hubby went to Johannesburg, early this morning.
Megan wrote Maths today, her second subject for the exams.

Like I said in my previous post, we were going to the South African Cross Country Championships,this weekend.
What a huge event!  I could not believe my eyes,when I saw all the people, we have been there before, but this event for sure,has grown.
Megan, pulled away, in a group,consisting of a 144 girls!  They started from the one end of this rugby field, running across and then turn at the other end, that turn was a NIGHTMARE!
The other girls of the province would not give her space, to stand in front, so she was way back!! Can you spot her??

The track, to be honest, was another NIGHTMARE, it was the worst hills I have ever seen in Cross Country. Now, the thing is, my poor girl{or so I thought} is not made for hills, BUT she ran then up and down. I could not believe my eyes, I could not even take the photos, hubby had to help.
After the first lap, I was in tears, it was warm, it was hard, but she did so well!
She came in on number 23!! Out of 144!!
These runners are from allover the country.
Their team, North West, came 6'th,overall.
Megan came first of North West, so she is now Number One in North West!!
We are so very proud of her, I think she ran with her heart.
Don't exactly know what her body says here, but I think she was so very tired. She got up this morning, feeling very sore.
We left the venue,just after 3,coming home, we all felt tired.
On another note:
On Thursday morning, when I wanted to switch on my computer, it was DEAD!! I always dreaded that feeling, now it was here, what about all my things???
My husband took it to the nearest PC doc, who told him, that it had died a quick, painless death!!
Luckily, I don't know how, BUT they could recover most of my things, lost all my emails, and list of Favorite blogs, BUT now I will just have to take a few days to get them all again. How will I operate again?
Hubby spoiled me with a new Laptop, I could not believe it! I am now sitting with a pretty HP Probook.
I am still struggling to get it all up and running, but I am sure, with some time, behind it, all will be fine!!
It even has Blue tooth,lol!! That feature is quite cool,so says Megan.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I am now off, to go check you all out!!

Oooops;) Sneaking back in. . . .

Hallo Everybody!!
Just to let you know, that I AM still alive and well:
Hope you are doing as good:)
I had a busy week and I thought I will fill you in,in this post.

I am glad to announce, that SPRING has ARRIVED!! {or maybe summer}we are in the 30's already!
It is really warm during the day,but having a lot of dust,so now, the rain must please come.
I must admit,that it is easier to exercise in this weather, I do get up much easier;)
On Saturday, I ran my first 10km race, I finished in 1hour and 10minutes, I am happy, for I have not yet actually ran this year. . .
I got a medal and a t-shirt, will do the show-off tomorrow:)

I am currently helping Megan with a huge school project, in Art and Design. She must design and make her own handbag,now that is actually cool, but it goes along with a whole lot of other things,she needs to do a 2 page collage on what inspired her to do this bag, she must show all the mediums she used on the bag, she needs to take photos on the progress of the bag too! Quite a hectic one, but she is enjoying it, she learned to sew this weekend!!lol!!
This coming weekend, she is running the South African Cross Country championships.
Then on Monday, the exams are starting, she made the Top 15 in her grade, this term, so very proud of her!!
It is also my mom's birthday this weekend, need to think of a nice cake to make.

I will do my catch up on your blogs soooon!!, Sorry, I am so behind:)
