Heat-we have heat!

I think I must do more "Pink"- ROTFLMAO, It feels like a summers day here today and I am LOVING it! WOOOHOO- 28 C and it's GORGEOUS!!! My ass isn't cold! hahahahaha. It's a holiday and I have just got back from shopping with hubby- but UM, we went to buy groceries and had great fun walking around the shop teasing and laughing- filled the trolly to the brim ( hell, I havent' been shopping for a while again- LOL). Did a slow stroll to the check out counters to find que's to the back of the shop!!! LOL, I swear, I think everyone in Port Elizabeth was buying groceries!!!- Wayne and I both looked at each other and went "you have got to be daft"-both at the same time- I packed out laughing! Looked at the trolly and then back at Wayne and he made me leave it like that just there where we stood!!! I felt so guilty walking out, but I really didn't need that cucumber that desperately to stand in those que's for an hour!!! LOL. So we came home with a pizza instead! hahahahahaha. Have any of you done that? Man please say you have- it will make me feel better! ROTF!


Well I have a NEW KIT in the store! I'm really thrilled with this one and have been "faffing" with it for over 3 weeks! ( yeah Jazzy I hear you-LOL)- It has been changed twice and NOW I'm finally happy- LOL. It's a HERITAGE style kit for MEN!!! I have a BOX full of photo's of my "male ancestors" and -well they don't look so good with lace and crochet! So I made this for all those "masculine" LO's.
Here is BYGONE-GENTS. Full of texture, rust spots, a bit of grime, and definetely MANLY. It has 14 papers and 39 elements in this kit. And yes, a little realism that I love so much. I would take up this whole post again showing you all that was in it- so please click the links to get a closer look as NOT ALL ARE SHOWN in the preview! It's on SALE NOW @ 25% off for a few days only.

But I did receive this AWESOME LO from Jazz to show you how wonderful it looks with those "old men"- (excuse the pun-LOL). Jazz even has photo's that where done on tin!! How great is that!
Here is the reason for this kit- My Grandfather and my great grandfathers photos! I just loved the clothes-hat's and cars!!! I haven't "tweaked" the photo's at all and have left them in their original state- ( it's how I like them-heehee). This is my grandfather and some of his friends watching my Gran play in a Nationals bowls tournament in 1958! The photo itself was printed in out local newspaper too.
And EVENTUALL we get to your sampler- LOL. This has 3 papers, 2 ribbons, 3 buttons, 1 stitch, 1 old journal paper, 3 ribbon ties. http://www.4shared.com/file/21666135/935f0aa6/kb-bygonegents-sampler.html Click on the link ( for the newbies) and remember only on SALE for a little while. Hugs and Loves Kim

Wow! This is gorgeous! Love the manly feel it has. Can't wait to dig up some old photos to us it on. Love the curled paper on the layouts you did! How about a tutorial on how to do that? Just a thought!

Melberry said...

Kim, shame shame. No, none of us have EVER left a full shopping cart due to a long queue before us. Wink wink. It's the store's fault for not having enough help to check everyone out. FABULOUS new kit, lady. Another must-have for certain. Thanks so much for showing the preview and sharing the sampler. It's delightful. New word art today on my blog, just fyi. Take care of fantastic YOU, Melanie http://mmdcreations.blogspot.com/

Hello Kim! First off, let me say your heritage kit is wonderful! I'm sure it will be perfect & you will get a ton of interest in it!

The shopping cart thing - oh Gurl, we've done the very same... after all, one only has so many hours in our lives... who wants to waste them off in a checkout line? Actually, my DH does 99.9% of the shopping for me, grocery wise, that is... we end up spending less money this way too, I'm sure!

Just wound up a LOVELY visit with my sister... 4 days of heaven. Will posting again soon too.

Have a good day! - looking forward to your next creations!

Great idea you have. I know I will use it soon.

And about the grocery store, I haven't ever done that, but I sure have felt like it a few times. But if it will make you feel better I can say I have! LOL

Laura said...

This kit is a wonderful one! Your blog makes me smile everyday, thanks for sharing your great sense of humor. I have a friend here in the U.S. who is from S.A., I'll have to send her a link to your blog, I think she'd love it, she's a nut like U!

Mary said...

I would just like to say that you do wonderful work. I am just learning how to scrap and I want to eventually learn how to make my own scrap kits so i can have a blog and a store as well. I can't speak for everyone but I know that I appreciate all of your hard work and effort that you have put into these scrap kits. Thank you for the freebies and I can't wait to see more of your work.

Hugs
Mary

Bad blogger reader I know, shame on me.

I have never done that of leaving the trolley full of stuff because of long queues but I have gone to a shop and seeing the queues leaving and going to either buy somewhere else or shopping some other day. :)

Really happy to hear that the weather is good and it's warm there, that you are not feeling so cold LOL

The new kit is fantastic, very good for male layouts and non-male layouts. And the layouts made with it are fantastic. Thanks for sharing them with us. :)

Many thanks for the sampler and I hope the weather continues that good during the weekend. :) Best wishes. :O)
