Happy National Digital Scrapbooking Day!! Freebie and lots more!

What a hectic week 2 weeks I have had! We went to Somerset West to furnish our holiday house in 4 days. It was totally chaotic and so, so tiring, I never thought we would do it, but we did, and I am so excited with how it turned out! Of course we still have renovators in doing some work, but I managed to at least get the lounge and dining room completely done. I went for neutral colours, lots of wood, and bright accessories to give that holiday feeling. We have our first people in for a weekend at the the end of November, then we will be there for December with piles of our friends. It is a beautiful part of the world, beaches and mountains, wine farms , shopping, site seeing. So if any of you ever want a holiday in South Africa, we have a beautiful 4 bedroomed ,3 bathroomed house, fully fitted and furnished ,with a big sparkling pool, and gazebo for plenty of outdoor living, and a car!! I am so excited to get this venture off the ground. I will post the web site as soon as it is ready to go!!

Here is a preview of what it looks like, don't want to give too much away as our friends have not seen it and I would like it to be a surprise! No pics of the garden or pool yet, as it is a bit of a mess with building rubble etc! Tell me what you think!!??

Thanks to Bonnie for her awesome photos , and for shopping with me, she really helped a lot, I could not have done it without her. It was so great to spend so much time with her, it wasn't all work, we did party, of course, and caught up! I have not seen her in months!
