YOGA | Challenge YOUrself

This month at Challenge YOUrself, we’d like you to scrap about something that you love (don’t forget to include YOU in your layout!).

There are several things I love (family aside – those would be shopping, reading, doing crosswords, taking road trips and beach combing) – BUT (huuuge BUT) what I really, really, REALLY love is practicing yoga! I do so pretty much every day on a beautiful wine farm here in the heart of my home town, Durbanville. Our view over the vineyards is just so utterly sublime (especially now, in the early days of Autumn) and serene and peaceful and gentle and soul restoring.

This picture below was taken way up on top of a beautiful orange sand dune on our recent trip to Namibia.

Memory Lane | Challenge YOUrself

Our March Challenge has gone love at Challenge YOUrself.

We want you to showcase a pet or an animal – along with YOUrself! – in your layout this month. Here is what I created:

When I was little, my daddy introduced me to chameleons; we had a tree in our garden that had 2 of the sweetest babies on it. I used to head out into the garden pretty much every day to sit in front of the tree and talk to and hold these little cuties. Since then, my love for these gorgeous creatures has grown. Then, after my daddy passed in 2018, I would look for signs from him by heading into my garden in search of chameleons, every time I was having one of my very sad moments (which was often!). In the years since he passed and on many searches (including silent begging), I found none. Until THIS late last year, when I found this little baby! I held him and he walked up my arm, then stopped right beside my tattoo of my daddy’s signature! MANY tears were shed through smiles and laughter. I’m so glad to have the opportunity to document this moment through my passion that is scrapbooking!!!!!

Beach Please | Challenge YOUrself

I have fallen so badly behind the admin side of my scrapping… life has been a bit of a challenge over the past 2 weeks!

This month at Challenge YOUrself, we want you to showcase in your layout, how you do self care. Me… I like to pop to the beach with a small picnic and enjoy a cuppa tea. There is something about the ocean that just soothes the soul.
