Sad news today

It's with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that Jenni Rousseau(Chaos Lounge) and Bonnie Van Esch's brother passed away early this morning.(South African time) You all know the beloved South African Designing sisters, and I love them both dearly. It saddened me greatly this morning when I heard and I'm sending you both all my prayers and love. Know that I am thinking of you and your families.

Also a big Thank you for all the Welcomes and the nice comments and encouragement you have sent my sister. It's so funny that when a tragedy hit's(especially to those you are close to or know), how it just makes you think how lucky you are and makes you appreciate your family MORE? I mean, Gaye and I used to fight like cat and dog when we were teens! Oh the story's I could tell you-lol, and yet once we got older and settled down, we grew closer and closer and today I couldn't ask for a better sister or friend! Love you sis!

I'll keep it short today, as you can already read - I'm in one of my *melancholy* moods- but it's just that I feel everything so close to my heart ;-)

I wanted to show off two LO's today done with my CAmping OUt kit!

Man I'm in AWE at these girls creativity and work-

This fantastic *storybook* Lo was done by Livia- I LOVE how her little boy looks like he is blowing his sausages cool- lol.

I'm so glad you shared the layouts with your Gone Camping kit. I had not seen it until today and I LOVE IT!! I had to go get it from the store. That guinea just cracks me up and I will have to use him for sure. My husband keeps them and they run loose around our home. We do lots of camping also so I'll get lots of use out of it. I can't wait to try out one of these storybook layouts now that I have some examples to give me inspiration. Thank you!

You are such a love and how special for you to call the girls with your love and support.

I've read both their stories, and left some love.
Can't get my mind of the little girl that'll have to miss her dad. So sad...
So I fully understand that you, being so close to them, have a melancholic mood.

Sending you a BIG HUG,

Dinphy
