Sometimes things don't turn out as planned.



Be mine

Sometimes things don't turn out as planned. And we feel disappointed. Lamenting on our misfortune [Chaucer-style no less...*LOL*]. But sometimes we should just go with the flow....who knows what unexpected surprises may be in store for us right?


Case in point: last week when I was in Sydney. I couldn't get a table at my fave seafood restaurant at  The Rocks because it was Valentine's Day. Bummer. The concierge did make alternative dinner arrangements at a restaurant at Darling Harbour. Oh well, it's just one meal right?


 A big one though...*LOL*


And at 9pm, I was treated to 10 minutes of the most spectacular fireworks display ever. :) Sometimes things don't turn out as planned....but way better!!! *winks*

The card was inspired by the sketch at CPS.

Supplies: Lily Bee patterned papers, Crate Paper Chipboard, Maya Road trim and trinket, American Crafts ribbon, button, tulle, handmade loopy felt blooms.

P/s: Have a spectacular weekend friends! Come play along with my guest Rose's patterned paper challenge! :)

Glad it worked out even better, fireworks are always fun! Sweet card too!

SPECTACULAR!!! Looooove that diner shot- I wouldn't eat it right off- I may have to stare at it for a while just to take it all in. The card is really wonderful. I have one of those Pink Paislee flowers and thought it wasn't usable because it pops out so much- leave it to you to ROCK IT OUT. The pin and layered chipboard detail- just perfect.

sandi said...
