    OK, so i went back and fourth on this and i was ready to give up... i did these all by myself because my FH is super busy with his business working 16 hour days and my MOH lives in a different city then me, and i dont really have anyone else to help me with them.... so after a couple of weeks of having the paper that i bought at "the paper tree" in edmonton, .. i finally worked up enough courage to try em out.. they turned out alright.. i wish i had more time but i'm kinda running out, and in between two houses... the house we have now and the house were building...

    "Years ago when they were young
    two lovers were brought

    under palm trees swaying,
    they'll be husband and wife.
