In one word...South Africa was AMAZING! I would have to say it is the most incredible place i have ever visited. Flying there however, was not incredible - more than 28 hours of travel all told - but i would do it again tomorrow ....well maybe not tomorrow - but I have been invited back again next October and I can't wait!
I arrived very early in the morning - we enjoyed a few hours of my arrival at the most beautiful spa I have ever visited. Ingaadi, surrounded by plush Olive trees and nestled in the heart of tranquil African savannah oasis. The experience of this serene sanctuary made for a truly unique spa surrounded with its natural backdrop of African beauty!

The next day we prepared for our classes with some of the other teachers
Our signs that we were asked to make ...love the Oceana line by Christine Adolph!
Amazing store that we taught at Scrapbooking Aquila!
Both Marah and myself had the most fabulous time teaching 10 classes and make and takes! We are grateful to all who attended and to Scrapbooking Aquila for inviting us! We both look forward to next year!
After we were finished teaching we spent some time shopping and then headed off to a four day African safari at Zebula!
Loved all the beadwork
Loved this shot...:)

I realize this post is too long already...i will be back to post photos from our safari in Zebula! Stayed tuned for part two of South Africa!
But of course, I must post a few photos of the assistants and another quote!
