Rainy Queen’s Birthday weekend

What a rainy weekend we had – bah!
Luckily there was a spot of sunshine when Chris and Tarryn checked out their canvas in our local Craftee Creations shop.

Checking out their canvas 

Tarryn really liked the canvas idea so we decided to make one together for her to take home. But she wanted to use different papers and had spotted my Free Spirit June kit from Paper Pesto and was in love with it. The pretty papers, cute flowers, buttons and the netting. That girl has good taste! We only added some chip board letters that we covered in paper and ink. Fortunately the kit is ample and I still got lots left to do my own stuff!

So delicate and feminine!

And some detail shots. Sorry I suck at doing them and need more practise!

Rainer is in Hongkong right now – pooped and tired on a long wait for his connecting flight to Tel Aviv. Asleep in the travellors lounge by now I hope. We had a little session on Yahoo MSger and he so surprised me when suddenly there he popped up on a webcam! With the words, ‘thought you might like to see me’. He hadn’t told me anything before he left because he wasn’t sure if it would work! Gosh he simply is the man of my dreams!!! *sniffs* the 15th of June seems soooooooo soooo long away:(

Ok enough moping. Wishing you all a great start to the week tomorrow and thanks for dropping by!
