What a fun weekend... the boys and I went to go visit Neville in East London for the weekend. They got to experience their first flight too. Were so excited.

We got up at 3 in the morning and were fetched at 4am ... we just made it to the airport in time.. man, that place is HUGE !! Luckily got on the plane with a minute to spare. The kids really enjoyed the flight experience.

When we landed Neville fetched us and took us for a walk on his favorite beach at Nahoon. Wow... there are shells all over the beach. It was so quiet and the sand felt like powder. Absolutely gorgeous ! You walk further along the beach and then it becomes crushed shells and then big black rocks. They have these stunning walkways in the cliffs so you can walk from one beach to the other. We walked about 3 Km's every day along the beach. Loved it ! Best way to excercise for sure !

Picked up so many shells, brought back about 2 Kg's more of luggage.. LOL! The shells just lie on the beach and inbetween the rocks.. not baby shells either, but lovely big ones that you never see on the beach. I was so excited.. Spent most of my time picking up shells. (wonder where I got my nickname Shelly !).. LOL

Neville showed us all the sights and we visited a few "local" spots. I must say I am very impressed with East London.. would move there tomorrow if we needed to.

On the scrapping front... it is almost time for our .....

Less than a month to go. Mitch and me are hectically busy putting together Notes, Kits and all the lovely prizes / gifts for the girls. You always think you have so much time to arrange these things and then you blink and it is upon you.

We are a group of 39 going just outside Bela Bela, to Outcrop, Outbling and Outscrap each other.. The ladies are all so excited. We have lots in store for them, I think that Mitch and I will need another weeks leave (or a trip to the Coast again) to recover ! LOL!

Here are some sneak peeks of some of the projects that they will be doing.

NOTE: Full kits for the weekend (3 doubles and 2 singles) are available for purchase at R850-00 each. If you want a Full Kit, please let me know on sa_homespun@mweb.co.za or 082 874 1806. We have packed a few extra ones for sale.

Also very excited to be going to the annual Scrapbooking Expo at Emperors. It is fully booked this year (sure it is because my good friend Candice is teaching !!). Cannot wait ! Will be lovely to sit back and enjoy having someone else tell me what to do for a change. That doesn't happen too often.

Im hoping to do some challenges this week and to get scrapping on my Travel Page .. need to get some photos printed of the boys Airplane trip!

{off to scrap now... have a good week ... Hugs, Mich }
