No challenge - just sharing....

Hello fellow-bloggers... Kendall's boss has 2 kiddies, a girl and a boy and they are the cutest little munchkins ever... Bea (short for Beatrix) only wears PINK and refuses to wear BLUE because it is a "seuntjies kleur" (boy's colour).  She has a mind of her own that one... apparently even her room is PINK, you need to wear sunglasses when you enter it -oohhh boy!  Liam is a "boy's boy" and definitely not into PINK!   Well, because it's Easter weekend this weekend, she bought them some easter eggs and a gift each... Bea's is PINK (has to be, or else!!!) and a pretty green bag to place it in.  I thought it looked a bit bare and as I had 2 extra Magnolia images tucked away somewhere, quickly whipped them out and decorated an oval nestie to look like an easter egg.  Really, this was a quick job and not a work of art... so no criticism please...lol  Just wanted to share it with you all!!!  So be nice.  Yep, that bag is really bright, hope you're wearing your sunglasses.

I am laughing to myself as I'm posting this.  So nice to be able to laugh at the silly things in life hey!

Welcome to my new Followers... very pleased to have you on board and I'll be popping around to visit you soon.  Happy crafting everyone... tons of hugs Sharon x

Before I go, if you scroll down to just before my Guestbook, you'll notice a link to a MP3 song. It's my favourite song at the moment and I listen to it on the way to and from work as loud as I can.  The artist is Johnny Clegg and Sevuka. This song is called Asimbonanga (click for the lyrics). It's about Nelson Mandela when he was a prisoner on Robben Island.  There's a lot of African language in it and I hope it gives my overseas visitors an idea what that language sounds like.  Hope you like it!

Thank you for your commenton my blog. As you can see I LOVE bright things. That bag is right up my ally, in fact I think I just bought one in every size.
The link to Sassy Cheryl has now been added to my blog. To find the freebies, go to paper craft planet and join the group.
Hope that helps.

I will certainly listen to your song! Have I ever told you that I just love your comments on my cards in South-African, it's such a warm language, just like you!
