The weekend that was

This weekend was quiet, just the way I love it.  Kobus Jr. left for Cape Town to go to the U2 concert on Friday.   Bianca left for a wedding in Knysna...which left me and DH home alone....Yay!!!!  My domestic worker is currently on holiday so on Saturday morning I had to wizz through the house to get it clean. Sweeping the rooms with a glance was no longer working;-D

DH was off to help Wynand plough his plot  with a tractor and tiller and get it level...he walked in at 5 o' clock, so dirty that he was unrecognizable.  If he had to jump in the pool we would have had a mud bath:-)  Then we had to get ready for our annual Valentines Ball sponsored by Woolworths.  It was a lovely evening with tasty food, good music and lots of dancing.  We got home very late and decided to sleep in on Sunday morning. 

I took part in the Scrappiest Sketch challenge this weekend.

This is Sketch 107
 Here is my interpretation of the sketch.  
I used products from the October Afternoon Recess line for this fun layout.  I tend to only scrap the pretty photos.  I realize that years from now I will still want to remember that Lukas had a quirky sense of humour at a very young age.  I started teasing even before he could talk.

Have a great week!

  21. Love your layout (I need to learn your scrap lingo :)) - your grandson is just so cute!

    I love that you had a chance to sleep in - it always feels so decadent, doesn't it?

  22. Absolutely love your take on the sketch & the layout is absolutely adorable! I love LC's sketches but never do them anymore since I won one challenge & she never sent me the RAK that was up for grabs - she eventually responded 3 months later saying she couldn't afford to :(
