AN ODE TO THE MAKARANGA SCRAP DAY 14 JUNE 2008
It is the 14th June
And you’ve all come back
To see what we have put together
For you all to scrap
Desire always spoils us
With gifts and more
That’s why we get excited
And always come back for more
The name tags are made
The competition is decided
And everything is ready
To get you all excited
The Herma Queen
Has to defend her crown
So don’t make her laugh too much
Otherwise she just might slow down
The shoppe is open
Lots of goodies to see
So bring your credit card or cash
And hand it over to me
When you open your pack
Read the instructions carefully
Then get on and scrap
So that we all can see
There was another competition
To see who can guess
So I hope you used your thinking caps
And put your brains to the test
There are lucky draws
That will take place
And as one of you win
We’ll see a big smile on your face
The tea, scones and muffins
Are all just so yummy
And the buffet lunch
Will fill the gap in your tummy
So whether you have come from near or far
We’re really excited to say
How pleased we are that you have come
To share another Makaranga scrap day
Enjoy your Scrapping Day!

DL MANAGEMENT AND STAFF
Michelle and hubby, Dereck stayed over at Makaranga Saturday night. It was Michelle's birthday on Sunday and after a sumptuous breakfast on the patio, we wondered through the breathtaking beautiful gardens and took some pictures which I am sure will hold fond memories for Michelle of her Makaranga Birthday ... it seems to be a general trend that women love having their pictures taken and men absolutely dread it ....
The happy couple celebrating their 24th wedding anniversary in Makaranga's Japanese Garden (Michelle and Dereck's wedding anniversary was on Monday, 16 June)
Now that's more like it Dereck ... a smile on the dial at last!
MAKARANGA'S FLOWER POWER
Most of you have probably heard on the news about the flash floods in KZN and that certain areas have been declared as disaster areas. Most people probably thought that Durban Airport was closed because of the adverse weather conditions on Wednesday, 18 June, but this was not the case. The Durban Airport was closed because an aeroplane skidded on the tarmac after landing and ended up in muddy grass next to the runway. So, yours truly sat from 11am at a CHAOTIC Durban Airport and only arrived just before 11pm at home in Johannesburg, nearly a 12 hour stint ... rather late than never!
A big thank you to all the delegates who attended the 14 June 2008 Scrapaganza. Without you, such a day won't be possible.
See you all at the next Makaranga Scrapaganza on Saturday, 6 December 2008!
