Jacaranda City!!

This time of the year, Pretoria is called the Jacaranda city because of the beauty of all the purple jacarandas, i love driving through Pretoria North especially as the jacarandas cover the street from side to side and you drive through it all, its just beautiful. i've taken a pic of a white jacaranda, its in Marija street and then the purple jacaranda. enjoy!!

Cardmaking Camp 2009

We had a wonderful weekend @ eMseni Christian Centre in Benoni,,,,, we created wonderful cards and projects like this one. This is my project from Blanche's class, Great Impressions,, its a canvas with wooden blocks that Dee prep for us before camp, we did all the stamping and decorating and then stuck it down on the wooden blocks. Mine is black and silver, it looks fantastic in real life,,, the other colours were burgandy/pinkish and brown/copper which also looked fabulous.
We all had a fantastic time, made a 12page chunky book, decorated both sides and then on sunday swapped it out with the friends that was in our group the whole weekend, a great memory to keep. 
I'll scan the other cards and add them one by one this week.
