Hi there,

Morning! What a lovely weekend… wow, the sun was shining.. lovely sunny WINTERS day??? Yeah... Go figure ! LOL.. at least all our International visitors are getting a taste of SUNNY South Africa. Have you seen all the flags flying for the FIFA 2010 WORLD CUP..? Only 4 days to go to Kick off.. the country is going mad !

Wow.. it is getting hectic.. everywhere you look there are flags … really a lovely site to behold. Wonderful how sport unites a nation. I don't even support soccer and even I am feeling very patriotic ! Check me in my YELLOW and GREEN.... !
The streets are lined with South African flags and international flags as far as you can see...

Good luck to BAFANA BAFANA on Friday ! May the Vuvuzela prove stronger than the Mexican Wave.. LOL!

ESPN have a series of adverts doing the rounds.. I am so in love with South Africa's one.. how cute is this ! LOL:

This just sums up our South Africa SPIRIT in a nutshell ! Well done ESPN !

This weekend we hosted our 1st TSHOLOFELO BABY SANCTUARY CHARITY SCRAP morning.
It was a great success and we had over 38 ladies arrive early at the Wilro Park Baptist Church to scrap for the morning. Lots of prizes were won and over R4000 was raised for this worthy charity during the morning.

Thank you again to all the ladies for your generous Raffle ticket sales.. and congratulations to the winner of our raffle and the cute little ZAZ diecutting machine and double kit from Clive Frost. {The Village Scrapper} set up her online-shop with all the LATEST Kaiser, Bo Bunny and other paper ranges and stock that has just arrived in the country. The ladies shopped up a storm and a percentage of the proceeds of the morning’s sales went to the Charity as well. Check out her online website to see this amazing new range of stock. It is the first time this paper is in the county!).

Layout completed for the morning was OWL always love you. This layout is now available in Kit format @ THE VILLAGE SCRAPPER online shop:
