Got some scrapping done

I managed to finish this layout over the week-end. The photos were taken last year at our Pinetown and Districts Athletics Club prize-giving where I was awarded a trophy for the walker of the year in recognition of the races I had done, including a 42.2km and 2 x 50 km, a wooden plaque in recognition of my having achieved 5000km in cumulative mileage in the 1000km challenge and was the first female in KZN to have achieved this, as well as a lovely embroidered towel for having completed the required number of races in a league challenge.


Had an interesting week-end - went to a Swipe breakfast on Saturday morning where I was asked to give my testimony on how a product called Promega worked for me. Then in the afternoon I went to a lingerie party (mmm very interesting!! and loads of fun). Got home and made supper for the family. On Sunday, Dereck and I went to Knowles, did some shopping and then had a late breakfast at their coffee shop. Came home and made some salads for a braai we were having in the afternoon. Dereck's sister, Lesley and her husband Alex as well as friends Ian and Jennifer came round for a braai and then we watched the Grand Prix (yes, I did actually sit and watch a few laps and I must say it was rather exciting to see Lewis Hamilton winning the championship.

This is a lovely layout. Was this really last year 2007? Because you are so modest about this huge achievement, I did not even know about it. Congratulations you can really feel proud of yourself as not even 1% of the world's population can boast with an achievement like this. Well done ... way to go. This layout treasures the memory for your grand and great grand children and for them to also be proud of such a special grandma.
