heritage layout and a braai.

5:42:00 PM

today (although almost over) we celebrated heritage day in south Africa or as it is better know as National Braai day (bbq). for me unfortunately no braai today - we are not the biggest meat eaters and although there is nothing nicer than a piece of 'braaied' wors or ribs we just didn't do it. but i did capture some photos of the big event last year and so it was time to create a fun layout using a cricut cartridge with some braai themed die-cuts.what i did do today is spent some time scrapping with friends and just chilling. even though i have been super stressed out lately - today was a good day. it must be a mind thing knowing it is a holiday. so for this layout i used the PB&J basic grey range of papers with its bright and beautiful colours - tying together our rainbow nation beautifully.
off course i had to add some bling to the little chefs hat
added some texture to my die cut title using a cuttlebug embossing folder
some sweet flags - yes flying them high and proud
and some background watercolour splashes
i hope you all had a wonderful day! no matter what you did. also reflecting on life and being alive as i came upon a horrific accident on my way this morning - while remembering the anniversary of my dad's death 27 years ago on the road as well. reflecting on the meaning of life - and as the Greeks say all there is is love and helping others. nothing else matters. and yes all the earthly goods don't matter. as i realised again today as i walked into total and absolute faith - cause there was nothing else to hold onto today - but faith itself and a promise.
