NEW! and a freebie

Can you believe January is almost over? We have had a very rainy, stormy January here. But today the sun is shining and not a cloud in the sky for a change! This is a photo my son took from work just before one of our huge storms that caused bad flooding in the area, look at that sky!

RuthMeldoy Designs has released a set of photos masks today- Masked 8My LO,also using Blossom
Puppy news! I did not receive my Cane Corso pup from the USA (Avalanche Kennels) in December as planned, the timing was not right and the pup would have only got to us after the age of 12 weeks, and we decided to rather wait for another litter to get a younger pup. Well, our pup was born on 25th January, one of 9 , so we should receive her at the latest at the beginning of April. We changed our order to a female as in the meantime I found an excellent breeder in South Africa,Tsavu Kennels actually not too far away from us, and we have bought a male and pick him up tomorrow! He will be one of these, we will decide which one tomorrow. He is only 6 weeks old!So we will have a male and female 6 weeks apart in age, double trouble LOL. We hope to at least breed one litter from these 2, as they are both from excellent bloodlines.

I have a little freebie for you today, some masks I created ages ago that I have changed up for the ESS Colour Challenge this month. They are layered, the mask is on a separate layer to the elements.(The doggy is my male Doxie)

Have a great weekend!

First post of 2011!

Welcome to 2011, hope your year will be a fantastic one!

We have just returned from a month long vacation at our holiday house in Somerset West, near Cape Town. We have not been for 2 years, and were shocked at the state of our garden and pool!
So we spent a lot of time doing some landscaping, the boys had quite a tan after it all!The result!And a clean pool!
We took hundreds of photos, will show you some over the next few days, toooo many for just one post!

We spent some time with Mark's brother and family
Wine Tasting and a picnic!An evening out at a seafood restaurantOf course I saw my sister, Bonnie and her family and my DadAnd an old friend
