We just celebrated Victoria Day here in Canada so we had a nice long weekend....and where do Canadians go for long weekends....the cottage....this week we all went up to Wasaga Beach and also visited Collingwood....it was so much fun to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Holiday weekend.....I also noticed that the theme on Creative Tuesdays this week is "Trees" and you all know just how much I love trees...so I created this piece for the challenge this week.....these two tree huggers just make me smile....

Happy Tuesday Everyone....and here are some photos from our amazing weekend.....

Love the tree huggers and the texture of the bark. Reminds me of when people would carve their initials together with a heart.

Looks like a fabulous weekend. I really like the tree too! How did you do it? Is it multiple layers of paper/fabric or is it computerized?

Your trip is out of this world beautiful, and your son adorable, and quite the poser.
