Holidays and a REVEAL

Oh goodness I'm fine-LOL. I had a few mails asking if I was ok yesterday due to not posting-  We as South Africans celebrated FREEDOM DAY yesterday- and for those that don't know about the history behind it I thought I would let you know why we celebrate it as a Nation- Freedom Day is an annual celebration of South Africa's first non-racial democratic elections of 1994. Peace, unity, the preservation and the restoration of human dignity hallmarks Freedom Day celebrations on the 27th of April of each year. A new non-racial Constitution came into effect on 27 April 1994, the day the nation as a WHOLE cast its vote in the first democratic election in the country(including Nelson Mandela himself). The ANC was voted into power and Nelson Mandela was inaugurated as the President of South Africa on 10 May.

And yesterday you can blame my DAD for me not being here to post-LOL. We went to him for a family lunch, and let me tell you that my Dad can cook up a STORM! He loves cooking ( will be 70 this year) and made us a fillet of Kudu ( which is a delicacy wild meat from a  SA buck), cooked the FARM way wrapped in bacon and slow cooked till it is YUMMY! LOL, with roasted fresh butternut halves stuffed with peas and corn, rice, roast potatoes and gravy! OH MAN, I ate myself FULL that I couldn't breathe! LOL. That's besides the pudding of custard, peaches, ice cream and chocolate cake!!!! GO DAD! And we have a really wonderful saying in Afrikaans(our second language) Maagie vol, oogies TOE! Which in English means- stomach full, EYES SHUT! WAHAHAHAHA, which is exactly what happened! I woke up in the evening feeling rather LAZY! LOL.

But after my hospital duty this morning I am sure I walked off some of those extra calories;-). *mouth watering again-LOL, time for some LUNCH! WAHAHAHAHA*

I thought I would REVEAL both my BAGS today as its the LAST DAY you will be able to grab ALL these goodies at these prices-

So here are the contents of the DESIGNERS MEGA GRAB BAG- still only $8 until midnight!


There are 6 overlays in here not 5 -LOL,


7 unique vintage/shabby frames


10 PNG doodles that can be used to make ANY type of element or paper designs!


Some real metallic bead accents


My favourites-LOL, some grungy scratched print overlays


some different ties and bows.


And some hinges and keys!

PHEW now that isn't bad for just $8!! But grab it NOW as this will be gone at MIDNIGHT and it will be all up at normal pricing tomorrow ( over $40 worth!)



6 Plain textured papers


10 coordinating patterned papers


29 Elements and doodles


A uppercase paper and card alpha


And my Ct's favourite, the suspended frames.

You can still grab all these at ONLY $2.50!!

Phew that's a lot of pics on here today-LOL, but it's nicer seeing them larger than all on one LO - Don't forget that if you e-mail me your invoice number when you have purchased BOTH BAGS I will send you a 25 page brag book for FREE ( it's in last weeks posts if you want to check it out)

And I have the last of the extra's that matches the Kit and papers in the PU bag-


There is a rope stitched shabby red tag, with a matching doodle flower and a glitter swirly too. http://www.4shared.com/file/45762771/82cd1e6f/kb-anordianryday-Extras.html .

Thanks for the SA history lesson. I love learning about other countries, especially when I know someone (online or in real life) who lives there. And thanks for the grab bag reveal. I now just HAVE to have it. Last week I tried to tell myself that I did not need it, but now I REALLY need it. LOL! I gotta go get it!
