There's a busy week ahead

First off I got 2 awards, but I'll pay them forward tomorrow and Wednesday. Today I have too much to say.

We've had a great sporting weekend and my head suffered for it. LOL. On Friday night we played cricket against Australia in the Pro 20 series and we WON!!!!! Whoooohooo, go PROTEAS!!! Sorry to my Australian readers.

Then on Saturday my favourite rugby team the Sharks played against the Brumbies and we also won. I'd like to wish Shawn Mackay from the Brumbies a speedy recovery. Shawn was injured on Sunday morning when he crossed the road and was struck by an armed response vehicle.

We had a crazy weekend. On friday night I was going to watch the cricket at home, but friends phoned and nagged for us to come and watch it at our local. We were drinking John Deere's because they're green and our national colours are green and gold. For those of you that don't know, a John Deere is Cain and Creme Soda. From then on it was downhill. LOL. We only got home at 2 a.m. in the morning and then we had to rehash the whole evening, I think I only got to bed at 4 a.m.

Then on Saturday morning it was out the house very early. Twice a year I support a local charity for quadruplegics called Ry-Ma-In (loosely translated in means Just Ride In). It's always a very emotional experience for me. It's when you see people that have no use of their limbs that you become humble and appreciate the fact that although you sometimes have aches and pains, you're still able bodied and not dependant on helpers for the most mundane tasks.

Saturday afternoon I helped my friend Sonja prepare for her daughter Sabrina's Sweet 16 party and we watched the rugby there and partied until very late at night. We decided it was a good idea to drink our way through every conceivable shooter we could find. And the end result, yesterday I woke up with half the day gone (and I had to be at the track at 7 a.m.), my mouth tasting foul and feeling as if I was hit by a cruise liner, a train, a bus and run over buy a stampede of cattle.

On top of all this I wanted to finish my new kit, but it just had to go on the backburner so that I could recover. And I just know that all my good intentions will just fly out of the window this weekend.

And I'm so excited about this kit!!!!! I'm very jealous that the northern hemisphere is going into Spring and Summer and we have Autumn (Fall) and Winter to look forward to. I had this idea to do a very fresh looking kit and I've done the entire kit in various shades of green. I'm very happy with how it turned out and I got the opportunity to use some goodies from Kim's Mishmash Bag that is on special for a limited time. This is one of those kits that I just couldn't finish because I kept on adding new elements. It's so big that I've had to break it up in several downloads that I'll put up every day this week. Here is a preview of the 9 papers and 25 elements. Drop shadows are for preview purposes only.

Here is the link to the first portion of the papers Thank you for stopping by.
