And Janet- I had to laugh- 'Dwaal' here in Afrikaans(dialect of Dutch) means 'lost, astray' too- but us English speaking South African's use it like slang- usually means you are lost/half asleep or just plain BLONDE when I use it-LOL! We sort of mix the two languages together for effect, and well, sometimes I have to stop myself here when typing as most wouldn't have a clue what I was speaking about- LOL- Add in a few Xhosa(Xh said with a click of the tongue on the top of the roof of your mouth) words too and well I would say we are an eclectic mix- hahahahaha. English being my first language-Afrikaans my second- and knowing a bit of Xhosa made it strange for me when I first arrived in Argentina- I kept trying to speak Xhosa as it was the most foreign one to me - ROTF- Yeah I did get a lot of strange looks!! And then when we returned home here I spoke Castallano ( dialect of Spanish) instead of answering in Xhosa!!! Then you should have seen the 'WHATS???"- hahahahahaha. My Best Friend and I still 'skinner' in Spanish as no-one else that we know understands- hahahaha. ( Oh that means 'gossip'-hahaha)

I received this AWESOME LO from Col yesterday - For her Mom and Dad- She used some of my Designers Kit bag in here too-
Don't miss it- only a few days left! -
And have you checked out the DSO MEGA this month??- GEE's - IT's HUMUNGOUS!!! hahahaha- You have to see what is in it- over 110 papers and Oh hell- 50 something bows and ribbons etc etc etc etc-
I did this LO ( second part) of the traditional Zulu Rickshaw-
Here you can see just how BIG that head gear is(feather plumes on top were chopped off in the original photo too!) - and let me tell you - I HAVE NO CLUE how they run with that thing on their heads LOL! And when I say they JUMP- I mean that your head in that buggy is like an inch from the road!! hahaha- LOL. They were originally Taxi drivers in Durban (early 1920's) - dressed up in 'traditional dress' to attract tourists- and that tradition is still thriving today. Thanks again to Andrea Gold for her template.
So here is freebie PART 2 of the little BRIGHT mini I made for my LO's- LOL, this one also has a star edged overlay - and an extra 2 'star glitter sprays'-
So now you all know a little more about all my "slang' words and where they sort of come from- hahahaha. http://www.4shared.com/file/25657990/1c9a7ebd/kb-Starryedge-2.html And as I would have said to my friends leaving after a visit - Check you tomorrow- hahahaha.
