Monday-AGAIN

EEEH, man this weekend flew past- it's Monday AGAIN already...LOL. I really have to learn that tequila is EVIL stuff..(thanks Renee..lol).. Rugby on Saturday was a whole day and night affair with a ton of friends.. Hubby even went out and bought a "SA rugby flag" to hang on a pole in the garden.....LOL, thank goodness we won...LOL. It hung there until last night! Yesterday we spent at my dad's, it was sooo nice. Hubby and my dad cooked a huge roast lunch(heehee, yup the men in my family love to cook) while my sister and I scrounged through all the cupboards for old photo's and some "treasures" that we knew were "hidden" away in boxes. What a great time to go through all the "ancestors" and who they were, what they did and um what you don't really want other's to know...HAHAHA( don't we all have those in the closet somewhere).. We ate far tooo much, laughed and talked toooo much ( which is sooo the usual) and came home "tired old farts"...LOL.. I hope your weekend was a good one too.
I've got a TOOT TOOT,- Jazz a friend and a member of my WONDERFUL creative Team was chosen as "LO of the week" at DSO... OH you deserve it Jazz, it was a stunning LO.. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Thank you soooo much for all the great comments on the Bygone kit- I really have enjoyed this one and I have a ADD ON to it too,
It is Available at DSO for 25% off for the next week only- it has 6 papers(patterns) and 19 new elements to match. Off course last night I had to play with "my old photo's" that I had brought home - so here today are two of my own LO's using my Bygone kit.


These are of my Grandmother( with her father on her wedding day) and the one above with her sisters and my Grandfather holding my dad when he was a baby. How great is the car in the background!! So because I was busy with these last night I made some FREEBIE word art for you to use on any of your Heritage/family tree LO's- one is even by our "own" Bishop Tutu.


I loved these and I think I'll be using them in the rest of my "Heritage pages"..LOL... These are in PNG format at 300ppi. http://www.4shared.com/file/17236144/15375348/Bygone_word_art.html Please send me a link to your LO's when you use them- I would LOVE to see.. and Thank's to you all that have sent me LO's over the weekend, they will all be appearing during the week.. Got to run ( got to get some food in this stomach..LOL) and I will chat tomorrow- Loves and hugs Kim

Congratulations on the victory of South Africa. :) It looks like it's been a really nice and fun weekend. :)

Your vintage layouts are really nice, and the word art is simple perfect for that kind of laoyouts, or any other layout. :) Thanks so much for sharing it with us and best wishes. :o)
