Very sad news for me!


Hi,girls!I decided to do some blogging today in the hope to get some of this pain off my chest.My uncle which was very dear to me,died on Friday morning.He was diagnosed with Lung Cancer about 3 months ago.He was a man that lived life to the full and loved living.But to see him so sick just broke my heart into pieces.He lost the ability to speak in this time,but always there was some music playing in the background of his room as he just loved his music.But to him this couldn't have been life anymore.To lose the ability to speak,laugh and even wash yourself are things that we take for granted.As he was a man of great pride,he couldn't have enjoyed it for others to do this for him.2 Days before he died his sister called us to come to him.The moment I walked into the door,I just turned around and walked out again.There wasn't a man lying on the bed but a skeleton.I saw him 2 weeks prior to this,but since then he had a huge down fall and lost more than half his body weight.After I cried for a while,I turned back and went into his room again to greet him.He was so ill,but still recognised me.Something told me that this will be the last time I see him so I wanted to make sure he knew I loved him so I asked him if he knew it and he nodded yes.I was so glad that he knew this but also sad about the circumstances.My aunt told me before he died he said that he loved us and then asked to be taken to his room.On the way to his room he died.Why am I telling you all of this?I don't know,maybe because you're strangers,but maybe also because I know you're real people and will understand what heartache it brings to lose someone you love.Thanks so much for reading all of this,I sure feel better now!Goodbye uncle Steven,may you rest in peace.xoxOkay,lets move on to some less depressing news.I'm finished with another christmas kit,yeah!It's called Blueberry Christmas and will be in my store at Digi Design Resort tomorrow.If you're looking for a christmas kit with something else than the traditional red and green colors,then this kit is for you!The kit has lots of elements and 12 beautiful shades of blue and white papers.Have a look!And to those of you that made it this far,I have a surprise!I made a quickpage freebie with some of the elements that are available in the kit!Mediafire download linkPassword is blueI'm also hosting a theme challenge from now on every month at Digi Design Resort.This months challenge is to make a layout about theme parties.For more info you can go here.Here is what the posting gift looks like.Remember to also check out the other challenges we've got going on at the Resort.I have to get into bed now,so I'm gonna love you and leave you!Mwah!xoxTrudie[...]

Yes,I do have a lot of news for you,so get a cup of coffee!I've got so much news to share I really don't know where to begin!Let me start off by saying thank you to everybody that commented on my In the garden kit as well as to those that send in layouts!While we're on this note let me show you some of the layouts I have received. This one I've got from Carena.The next one I received from Lina (Moonlightpearl) Thanks for the beautiful messages that you always leave!The next one comes from Irene (Eye)And last but certainly not least is one that has been made by Lois.She used a template by Colie's Corner.She also made the LO into a quickpage for you.Click on the picture or here to download.Some more great news that I've received is that I was chosen again by Mamrotka to be a guest CT member in November an December!I was a guest for her in July and August as well and really enjoyed working with her kits.The first kit I chose to work with this time is her fabulous Saroosh.Available at SAS.Here is a layout I made with it.A few days ago I applied to be a quality control checker at Pretty Scrappy and yesterday I got the mail that I was accepted.This job I thoroughly enjoy not just because I get to keep all the kits but also because I get to learn so much from it.The sweet TamaraD from Scrappy Thoughts is looking for a few CT girls for her own personal team.You can have a look at her kits here.If you're interested contact me at Okay,that's all I have for now.I will be back later in the week with a new freebie kit that I'm working on.Hugs xox[...]

Freebie from me to you on National Scrapbooking Day!


So are you enjoying National Scrapbooking day yet?I am! I just love gifts(who doesn't?) and can't wait to see what the designers have come up with.So I thought I would also give away a little freebie.Actually I've been trying for over a week now to get this freebie uploaded,but since my upload speed is so poor I only managed to get it up today.But rather late than never!



I've zipped it in 3 parts for those on dial-up,make sure you get all the parts.

Sorry,no longer available!

And if you make layouts with it,I would love to see them.Send me a link and I'll put them on my blog.

I also got a "Blog with a heart" award from my fellow South African scrapper Renee.Whenever I get an award I'm really amazed that somebody thinks my blog is worthy of a award since I'm such a bad blogger!Thank you so much Renee!Check out her blog for some awesome freebies,this is one talented lady!


So now it's my turn to send this award to somebody.And this is always the tricky party cause there is so much blogs that I think deserves the award but then I will sit here forever!

So here are my nominees:

NBK Scrap

Lara's Digi World

Angel in my pocket

Carena's Extravagance I want to thank Carena especially for helping me get to know Photoshop and for being so patient with me while learning.Carena,without you I couldn't have done it!Thanks a zillion!Remember what I said about Hollywood,the offer still stands!LOL!

Okay, I'm off to go and see what pressies all of the designers have for us.

Hugs and kisses

Bad blogger with a freebie!


Yes it's true,I'm a bad blogger!But not because I want to be,simply because I have a poor ISP.Infact,I think their service stinks!I've been without internet for 10 days all together this month,how's that for service?And this is not the 1st time this is happening,I've been with them for almost 5 months now and it happens every month.And then there is the fact that they no longer provide us with e-mail addresses and the poor upload and download speed.So do you see my point that I'm not the bad blogger willingly?

Okay,enough ranting and raving!I've got some awesome news as well!(Awesome for me anyway!) It was my birthday the 26th of October and guess what hubby got me?A 19 inch flat screen and external hard drive!!Woohoo!I've always wanted such a screen and a external hard drive.And since one of the stores had a huge sale on pc stuff the other day my hubby decided he will get it for my birthday!Now is that a clever man or not?He gave it to me a few days before my birthday and then what happens?On the actual birthday,he forgot that it was my birthday!!10 points less for him!But he's forgiven just because I love this flat screen to death!Oh and him as well!LOL!

I made you 2 bragbook pages as a freebie today.I used the Abby templates and the stunning kit Baby Soft from Carena's Designs. Have a look around in her store at her other gorgeous kits as well.She also has a 40% discount coupon available on all her digital kits (no CU items) until the 10th of November.Just type NovCouponSpecial at the checkout for a 40% discount.

Here is the preview of the bragbook pages.
