Feel it. It is here. The Soccer World Cup layout that is. Yes, I’m sure you were loosing the faith but here it is. Now, this page is a loose scraplift of Marge Cox’s stunning page which won best World Cup layout in the recent Scrapping & Kie competition. (I only scraplift from the best I’ll have you know).
The pics I used where:
5 (4ups) – ie 4 pics printed onto one jumbo – 3 landscape, 2 portrait
2 (2ups) – ie 2 pics printed onto one jumbo - landscape
2 jumbo landscape.
(where I used the 2 ups and 2 jumbo, Marge used one stunning A4 landscape picture so you can do that if you prefer).
Now, the kit comes with:
The paper, soccer title, soccer ball strip and the hexagonals but you need to bring, if you want to use what I used :
Soccer playing cards purchased from C N A for R12.00 (the one with all the players)
Small South African flag stickers
A white gel pen (very important and like hens teeth to find although I’ve been told the Ink Spot has loads).
Any other pharaphanalia you might have – tickets, flags, Zakumi or what have you.
(incidentally, did you know that that strange little spotted leopard Zakumi (if indeed he is a leopard), created by one Andries Odendaal, was born in 16 June 1994 on Youth Day. The “ZA” is the international code for South Africa and “kumi” means ten in several African languages, referencing 2010?)
Soccer kits are limited so might be best to book one. (I’ve got one booked for Ada, AnnMarie, Alanna and Monica so far – hope I havent left anyone out)
I’m expecting a collective gasp of disbelief as you all realise that there is aboslutely NO journaling on this page. Now, before you start thinking I’ve fallen into your slovenly ways regarding journaling I have to tell you this is but one of TWO world cup layouts. Layout two will be positively awash with journaling. Who, what, where, why and how. You are more than welcome to scraplift as much of this information as you like.
I’ve attached the advert for the Scrapkits day at Sica’s for November 13th. Space is limited so make sure you book early.
You got all my info this week about the school Scrapping Fundraiser?. Do hope you’ve booked.
Evening class next week will be on Thursday 12th – let me know if you can make it.
Please make a note that I’ll not be open on Tuesday 10th as I’m off to a Retailers Day.
Bee tells me that her card class this month is going to be fabulous ( when is is not?) – I’m not sure of the date but I’ll let you know as soon as I hear anything
Sheila is looking for someone to scrap a project for her. I’m afraid I just don’t have the time but I told her that I mix in a circle of very advanced scrappers, superior to me in many ways (a harmless little white lie, fingers were crossed) and that one of you might like to take on the project. She’s happy to pay of course. Let me know if you can take this on.
Wishing all you lovely ladies a fabulous Women’s Day on Monday. Go on, do something just for yourself.
Take care, have fun and laugh often.
I thought I’d end with these touching responses from kids who were asked what love is…….

And the final one The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, 'Nothing, I just helped him cry'
