*grab coffeee*

OMG_ seems I’ve been MIA for months huh? lol.

Well I made it home! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! After Ant and Pieter left our place in JHB on the Sunday, Nathan arrived and it was SHOP SHOP SHOP because the boy has now got “lats” and muscles like a man and all his clothes looked like he was being “squeezed” into them! hahaha. His shorts I’m sure brought up his voice a few octaves!

WE spent three days running around the shops, made sure Waynie had what he needed, and then left in the wee hours to DRIVE the 12 hours trip home in my new car! OMG- it was a pleasure actually- makes you tired yes- but the drive was sooo easy and Nathan REFUSED to let me drive at all! hahaha- I think he just liked the fact that it had a bit of VOOMA compared to his little “student” car ;-P

We got home safe and it’s been more shopping ( mmmmmmmmmmm- toilet paper seems to be the thing Nathan hates buying at home- bWAHAHAHAHA) there was a half a roll here for two bathrooms again- Yup- don’t think that was going to work! lol

Family of course have filled my days since I have been here and today I’m meeting everyone for LUNCH- yay!! I still have a bit of Christmas shopping to do but hell that can wait for next week now! hahaha. Have you got yours done yet??

I used my OFF SHORE kit for this one and also got GSO for it!WHEEEEEEEEE- that made my night I swear! lol

My nutty friends laughing their asses off in my swimming pool!

You still here??? lol, told you to grab coffeee- yup, did warn ya! lol

but hang in there I have something for you – PROMISE!

As you know I have taken a break from hosting the DSO colour Challenge due to my upside down hectic schedule- but, I have LOVED playing in it! JenC Designs has given the most gorgeous swatch this month and her PB for this month is to DIE FOR!!! Check it out HERE!!

And I made up a little “Christmas freebie” for you with it!

I love this, but the links aren't working at 4shared. I know it's 4shared and not you. 4shared is driving everyone crazy lately.

Got it. Thank you so much.
4shared decided to start behaving again. LOL

Cathy said...

Beautiful scrap! Thank you for making it a freebie for us. I'm trying to do a tutorial using it, but am having a hard time downloading it. I either get timed out, or get a damaged error when trying to open the zip.
