Aiming For Stars

Reach for the moon... even if you miss you'll land among the stars

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails." Mark Twain

Found the template for this star on the Jasco papercraft site. Bit fiddly to piece together but glad we stuck with it as it is quite nice now that we are done (with bits of glue and tape stuck to everything else including me).

Oh by the way there are quite a few frangipani out around Cooroy, just need to find some close enough to the road to photograph. They are stunning, I just adore them!
