Some Christmas Jewelery{and some chatter}

I decided for this year's Christmas I will include some handmade gifts too. I saw this idea in a local magazine and decided to give it a go. This is my first bracelet watch:)
 I also finished this necklace last night, purple is not my favorite colour, but it is SO trendy this season:)
Yet again, it is so easy to please a lady with some gifts, but the men remain a problem for me.

We had some lovely rain, the past two days.
The sky is still packed with clouds, so maybe some more later today:)
My Megan is finished with her exams, she only had to write 3 subjects, the other lot she graduated, no need to write them, this only happens in grade 10.
She got invited by a friend to join them for a 10 day holiday in Cape Town, hubby and I agreed that she could go, BUT this will fall in Christmas time:( She will not be here then. . . It is hard, but I want her to have some fun too, during the holidays. Some people might disagree, but I always try never to stand in front of her, but behind her, she is growing up and I should let go, slowly but surely.
Enough of that.
You all, have a great weekend and make sure to add some CREATIVITY!!

Cutie{a layout for a friend} and something I could not resist

 I created this layout for my friend in Pretoria, she and her family came to visit one weekend and went through my photos and found this one. Once again, paper from out my archives and the flowers are just odd ones i bought at the craft shop, they were white,so i gave them some mist. Few Enmarc Rub-ons and there you go, my gift to her:)
Then, on another note, I went to buy some odds and ends at the Spar with my hubby today and as I passed, my eye caught this top or dress, whatever you want it to be! I just had to have it!! This little shop has got the most beautiful things and the creator of this dress is just so talented and very creative. She has got her own line of clothing, Viva la Vida. She has a contract with the shop, so she does not supply to the individual.
Hubby of course can't understand why we should pay so much for things like this.
But then again, the expression on my face: PRICELESS!!lol!!
Have a nice day!!

Giant Beauty(Double Page Layout}

The Elephants are my favorite to photograph whenever we go for a trip in the game reserve. Because of the huge close-up being so grey, I decided to use red as a background.  And who said you cannot add bling to a elephant layout?
I did. . .
And for the life of me, I can't remember the range of paper that I used!!
What I do know is that I am now really digging in deep into my stash, so for a while it will be NEW photos with OLD stash!lol!!
I hope that you are enjoying a lovely Sunday:)
Thanks for popping by.xx

Best Friends of the Family{2 Page Layout}

I started with the single page thing a while ago, now a double page seems to be a challenge, I struggled to connect my pages to avoid looking like a school project, don't know if i succeeded?? I used odd photo's of the doggies, some of them got mist on, since they were sitting on my workspace, while doing another page!lol!!
We had some lovely rain, mother earth got cooled of very well, it was really sooo hot here!!
You have a super day!!
Thanks for coming by.

Something is better than Nothing{@ sixteen you u are still my cupcake.}

Hallo you girls!!
Hope you had a great weekend.
I have not posted anything, once again, but now I thought something is better than nothing.
Did this layout, last night, used Kaiser craft paper and some odds and ends of embellishments.

This is what is going on in my life lately:We are organizing the school's trip for the athletes going to America! Yes Megan will be going to America next year March/April for 3 weeks.
She is also playing for trials for the under 18 North West Hockey team, this is tough, since she is only 16, but until now she is still in the group.
Me, I was recommended to go for an Insulin Intolerance Test,been feeling tired lately and getting bad headaches, after eating things like fruit, which is high in sugar.
Well, it is almost Christmas once again, I cannot believe this, we were still celebrating soccer the other day!
I have been reading A mother's Hope by Francine Rivers and got my hands on the second one, A Daughters Dream, BEAUTIFUL. I must admit this book is keeping me from doing a lot of things, but I am almost done.
I also realised this weekend, that when you fell of the blogging wagon, it is HARD to get up again, but with enough inspiration, you can do it!
I was reading through some blogs and I got some of it back, by reading the blogs of Helen, her scrapping is out of this world, then receiving a lovely comment from Pearl and finally, checking out the blog from Lynette, drooling over her new scrap room, thanks for your inspiration girls!
