Book of Me Challenge #1 and some Beading

To those of you doing the Book of Me Challenge with Tracy here is my take on the first challenge. I certainly had a lot of fun putting it together and am busy working on Challenge #2. Sorry for the long wait:

There is still time for you to join, so come along and join us create a memory for future generations.

I was rather busy yesterday as my friend Rayna's daughter who runs the the coffee shop at Stoneage in Pinetown arranged a beading morning where Rayna, Shelley, Kathy and I made 2 cute dragonfly key rings. We were also treated to a "Royal Tea" with lots of yummy things to eat. I really had a lot of fun making them:

No, Desire, I will not be taking up beading !! I will leave those wonderful creations for you to make, although I might make a few keyrings as they are quick and really easy.

After the beading, Shelley and I went to Mount Edgecombe to check out the Scrap 4 Africa shop, followed by a trip to Imagine That at the Crescent. This was rather exhausting work and we stopped by the Wimpy for a double thick milkshakes, then off to do some grocery shopping and then home.

Dereck's friend was playing in the "School of Rock, SA" musical at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, so we arranged with Janine and Nicholas to join us and we went to watch the show. It was brilliant and very well done by a selection of school children. It was the Unilever young actors production that is held every year. The children come from various schools round KZN.

Well, I must go now as I have my next BOM Challenge to get on with.

Wow Michelle, I just love how you photo shopped that stunning photo of you. I will need a lesson from you re how to just add a specific spot of colour to a black & white photo. And of course the flower will only be in your favourite colour mauve!

Your colour choices are just perfect for the photo. Mmm ... now I would like know how you did the title, can't quite figure this one out.

Good luck with the next challenge.

The key ring holders are very cute. Would have loved to join the Botha's Hill gang. One of the draw backs sitting here in Gauteng.
