DSO Colour Challenge - October

I'm finally recovering from Friday night. We had a ladies night in aid of our Junior Lions rugby players and it was one of those nights where the wheels fell off the bus. My friend Cheryl is the social secretary for the rugby club and usually comes up with a fun evening every 3 months. We had some strippers and belly dancers this time and a really fun evening. The guys joined us at about 9 in the evening and by then the atmosphere was so fantastic none of us wanted to go home. I eventually got home at 3:30 in the morning and had to be up at 06:00 again. All I can say is yesterday was a very long day.

I wanted to watch Shrek 3 again last night (I love that movie as we called Max Shrek) and I fell asleep soon after it started. I didn't even realise that Corné sleep walked me from the couch to the bed. But I feel revitalised this morning.

Oh and I wanted to let our American friends know that my posts aren't full of spelling mistakes. South Africa used to be a British colony and that's why we spell like the British. We use s instead of z and add letters like u in certain words.

On to today's freebie. My compatriot Kim runs the colour challenge over at DSO every month and boy, can she pick great swatches. This month she put up a colour swatch that was truelly me. I fell in love with this swatch and couldn't stop creating. I ended up with a monster kit for me. It has 12 papers and 25 elements. I call it Flower Shoppe and it has lots of flower elements and satin ribbon and bow elements. I just loved creating this kit and eventually sent Kim an e-mail to say that someone is going to have to tie my hands up, I can't stop. Thank you Kim, I love participating in this challenge every month and your Commercial Use goodies come in so handy for these kits. This month I also used some goodies from The Scrappin Cop, a marvelously generous lady that offers all her CU goodies for free to the scrapping community. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate your contribution to our community so much and hope that I do your goodies justice.

Here's a preview

This kit is so big, I have had to upload it into 4 parts and here's the links.
