Prayers Needed

Ron got a text message from his friends/colleagues @ The Caribbean telling him they've been hit by Hurricane Hanna and to please say a Prayer for them.

all Guests have left the resort and just a remaining few staff staying behind. majority of trees recently planted are now damaged and some roads broken. Hurricane Ivan is expected on Saturday and they hope there will be no further damage :(

Ron's been requested to quickly return back there to help save and restore the plants and trees. he leaves Monday. so we will always have them in our prayers and also to those affected by the Hurricane. and we only have heavy rains here yet we complain about getting wet...


i won't even complain about my husband having to return back there when he just got home about a week ago after spending 2 months there. we only hope and pray things will get better. Thank You for your Prayers *hugs*

this afternoon we took our kids to Geylang Serai, another famous area you must visit especially during Ramadan. managed to take a few shots and here are some beautiful, colourful Kebayas from Indonesia :)



at least Ron gets to feel the atmosphere of Ramadan here and enjoy some time with his family :) it sucks not having him around but it's not as if i need him to face me 24 hours a day! hehe...

here are 2 Layouts i did for Sketches Recipe
Stef
did this for her before she left and forgot to leave
blank journal strips on the right next to photo for her to fill in
and this for Sketches!
using Farflung Crafts pp, red batik flower from my batik cloth
and some doodling. hope you like this one Kristy :)

a card for my Sweetheart :)
stamped swirlies by Autumn Leaves.

when my mind travels...i decided to make a fry box!
used freehand cut felt and prima flower & flower brad.
this could Cheer someone up. it did for me! :D

and the Announcement has been made. i am truly honoured to be part of this Awesome team on How Dare You, Aussie Dares :) Thanks Rebecca!

it's Friday night, just helped Ron send some emails to his friends and colleagues. he'll have to see how much work has to be done and will have to be back by the time the F1 night race begins here. it's really nice to know that he's been specially requested to be on the landscape & decor team by the Bondi Girls.

we just want him to have a Safe journey
and hope all will turn out well for Everyone, for Our World :)

Thanks for coming by and wishing you a Wonderful Weekend!
Take Care and Happy Smiles! :)

Congrats on everything!
