5 years on...

Today is our fifth wedding anniversary, and it was hot the day we got married, and it is HOT today too! Even the wind is hot, a bit like being in the savannah, where the wind blows hot( not sure about this, but it sounds good!!lol) I think a trip to the sea would be good, accompanied by a Frappucino, and a bowl of ice cubes. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the SUN, but this is VERY HOT!!! it is too hot to craft, but I did, early this morning, and this is what I made for the love of my life, a very patient man, who puts up with my quirky ways, my nagging ( who me? lol) , and my cats!!
I wanted to make something to remember today, that also had wood in it...5 is wood apparently, it could be also apparently be silverware.. but my budget didn't run to this, so here is a wooden shadow box , and I made a collage inside, with some of Tim's papers, and some of the girl's paperie cut outs, and lots of distress ink, and idea-ology charms, and mini paper roses, and a little tiny bottle.
I am off to pretend I am in Spain with my feet in a bowl of cold water to cool down, and a large glass of something cool!
