Bathing Beauties

Welcome to 3 new followers, Sauyma, Eileen and Sari, nice to meet you.
I didn't get much done today, I slept in for about 30 mins and then decided to do some commenting for Make It Monday, ring my Mum, have a late shower and get dressed finally!!! A friend rang and asked if I was going up to the shops, which I usually do around lunchtime to get afternoon tea for the craft group and also some lunch to take with me. I met her up there a bit earlier than usual and we had lunch together before I had to rush back home to pick up my craft things.  I realised I was going to teach a couple of the girls how to make the chocolate ribbon slider box and then I had to race around finding bits and pieces for that.
We had a good afternoon, Jane made a couple of boxes and Joyce did one as well.  I played around and adjusted the size of the card and where the score lines went to make another box to fit a smaller block of chocolate.
We had tea out with friends and then I thought I had choir practise. I decided to pop back home before going just to check the choir roster and saw that he had changed tonight and make it next week instead. I'm glad I didn't drive into town first. I hate it when I drive in and see there are no cars in the back of the church.  It's not too far to go but still a waste of time and fuel. Hubby had gone to the hotel straight from work, so he had his car and I think called in to see our son because he thought I was out too. It didn't matter because I did some more commenting and got caught up with all the entries.
I watched a bit of tv and thought about what I wanted to make tonight.
Here is what I came up with!!!
