Cozy - October Hip kit - Keurbooms River

I am sitting in front of our caravan with this beautiful view.  We arrived at the Keurbooms Forever Resort on Friday and it is just such a chilled and relaxing place to be...or so we thought.  On Sunday morning the six of us set off on a walk in the area.
Wynand took this "Selfie" of us to document our holiday together.   A few moments later Wynand ran to catch up with Lukas who was riding his bicycle and at full speed he slipped and fell.  He couldn't get up and a park ranger came to our aid and transported us back to our camping site.  The pain was gradually getting worse and we decided that Wynand is going to need some medical attention.  We drove to Knysna's Life private hospital.

After having x-rays it was found that his leg was dislocated and it needed to be put back under anesthetics.   At that stage the specialist was 90% sure that Wynand is going to need surgery as the ball of his hip joint had a fracture.  Wynand was then sent for a CT scan to ascertain how serious the fracture is.  We set about contacting all our intercessors and prayer warriors to pray for a miracle.  Wynand's leg was put in traction and he had to stay overnight until the specialist could get a second opinion. 

I marvel at this son of mine's soft and gentle nature.  This  could have meant the end of our holiday as further surgery would have had to be done in Port Elizabeth.  His trust was completely in the Lord.  He is a living miracle and has seen the Lord work miracles with odds lower than 10%.  On Monday he called us...the specialist in Port Elizabeth said that further surgery would be a waste of time and money and would just result in a "pretty"  x-ray.  Now we are back next to the river and Wynand is gaining strength in using his leg daily. 

Now onto something scrap related.

I absolutely adore scrapping my loved ones.  Besides the therapy I get from just being creative...reliving memories are just so awesome.  I scrapped another page of our grandson Lukas with his Fat Cat.  Here is the page:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Dear Lizzy (Saturday), Pink Paislee (Paige Evans), Maggie Holmes(Gather);  Cardstock: American Craft; Letter Stickers: American Craft:  Wood veneer; Jillibean Soup; Chipboard: Cat: WeR Memory Keepers (Tiffany), Heidi Swapp; Stickers: WeR Memory Keepers; Brads: Simple stories; Flair: Fancy Pants: Rub ons: Jen Hadfield; Buttons: Crate Paper; Enamel Dots; My Minds Eye; Rubber Charm: Pink Fresh Studio; Die cuts: Dear Lizzy (Saturday); Embroidery Floss: DMC Variegated; Circle cut file: Just Nick; Other: Silhouette Cameo.

I used this sketch:

Some close ups:
 I cut a tiny circle to compliment the larger one for the cluster at the top left of the page.  I also added a gold rub on to compliment the one I added at the bottom right cluster.

 Yes...there has to be some stitching.

 I love digging into my embellishments to make little clusters.  A page is just not the same without the sprinkles.

 I have to tell you the story of this little cat.  She has been sitting in my stash since 2009 when she was part of the WeR Memory Keepers Tiffany she found her home.

A few little tags, enamel dots and the title to round of the page.

Thank you for visiting my page today and leaving some love ♥♥

  6. Hi Lynette, I love Keurbooms , we used to caravan at the old caravan park which is now a housing development. We also had our medical drama there with my daughter getting a fish hook through her finger! As always I love your clusters and all the stitching that you have been doing on your work. Thanks for all your comments on my blog in 2016 , wishing you and your family a blessed 2017
