Be prepared- this is loooong!!!!! Lots of freebies!!

So much to tell you today, and this will probably be my last post for at least 2 weeks, as I am off on holiday to Bangkok (one night in Bangkok) and about 10 days in Phuket!! I am so excited, although little apprehensive about going to a place where there was so much destruction and death. We are going with hubby's business colleagues and their partners , about 24 of us, so it should be one loooong party, I think we will need a holiday when we get back. My wonderful mom in law Audrey is flying here to look after my kids, so I know I can relax and not worry about what is going on at home. I have a new camera that I have not touched yet, so I can't wait to use it, so be prepared to see lots of flops haha.

We leave on Friday 5th Sept.

Ok, let me start by showing some awesome LO with Bonnie's and my collab
Fall,Leaves Fall .There are too many to show them all off, I am sure Bonnie will show off her CT's work, and I will show off mine!

Yvonne made the gorgeous alpha on this LO and decided to give it away as a freebie!! Download here
I also had to show you this beautiful page of my daughter that Bonnie did, using one of KimB's hanging frames, a freebie on her blog.
Kirsty made this gorgeous hanging cluster frame with my Summer's End Kit, you can grab it for free on her blog, don't forget to say thanks!!
It's that time of the month again and my Candy Jar Challenge is up! It is the first day of Spring in South Africa so I thought to be different I would do a Spring freebie! I would love to see anything you do with it, so please post your LO in the Candy Jar gallery!
