One of my niggling concerns is that I have never felt I am very good at having fun !
Not the sort of "fun" that other people seem to find fun - nights out, parties and all those gregarious things !
On Saturday the sun shone & I set to on my vegetable bed - I ripped out all the old, bedraggled and frost damaged veggies and dug it all over - adding bonemeal and a big bag of Alpaca poo !
So am I just wierd or is it okay is for that to be fun ?
I had wanted to have Sunday as a playday - so I had purposely attacked the ironing (my normal Sunday afternoon task) on a couple of week nights to give myself free time !
So Sunday I was able to indulge in myself in some serious scrapping !
Is it okay for this to be so much fun ??
I was determined to finish my Africa Scrapbook - so here are my last few pages !
One of the days we squeezed in a visit to a wildlife park - we saw all the animals they call "The Big Five" plus Imperial Ibis, Springbok, Gnu's and Ostrich !
Of all the animals I loved the Elephants the most - I could have watched them for hours - but didn't realise quite how smelly they would be !!
You can see that the lovely tag Bella mad for me finally found it's forever home !
Each day was crammed with our planned activities - but early on my last day we were able to take a quick trip up the cable car to the top of Table Mountain - it was an amazing place.
It felt like I was on top of the world at the bottom of the world !
The views from the summit were stunning - all across the city and out across the ocean - next stop Antartica !
And then in the opposite direction down the craggy mountainous coastline - mountains plunging towards the sea !
I still had a few souveniers left - so I made these two pages where I could tuck my various bits & bobs and memories !
I used the fun African Musical Ladies stencil that Bella gave me and the chipboard map and Baobab tree I had bought at the scrapping shop in cape Town - some stamps, banknotes & coins and a few others things I had hoarded away !
And one last page was all about meeting up with Bella after reading her blog on WOYWW - and remembering how amazing it was to meet someone at the opposite end of the world who loves the same crafty things that I do !
So after all that scrapping I felt the need to indulge in a little arty project !
I had seen a project in this months Craft Stamper using the Crafty Individuals Bunny stamps I had bought used in a box project.
I had already painted up this box to upcyle it and this seemed a fun thing to do - so here's my little bunny project !
Hope you all have a fun crafty week !
Take care Ali x
