Please help out my friend Deb who is having a fund raiser for her mum. All the information is below and dont forget to put in a bid!! It would be much appreciated by Deb :)

Starting this week- August 2010, We are having a Fund Raiser to raise a little money to go to a very worthy cause for an Aussie Battler & Pensioner, My Mum:)

My Mum is currently having Chemo for Breast Cancer & also has Sugar Diabeties. She needs a special pair of shoes that cost $300 & she is not able to meet this cost on her own, so the Deb's Creations DT Ladies & myself have made items that will go up for Auction starting this Friday:)

Each Day over the next week, I will add pics of the items going up for Action here with the starting bid price in the Forum & the highest bidder will win the item & it will then be mailed out to you:) I would like to thank the DT Ladies for all your hard work, you are all wonderful!

Extra bonus... if you come back here and post who each of the above mentioned people are... I will give out a RAK for the scavenger hunt to one lucky random generator chosen winner!

Here is my submission called Envious Angels

I found this poem hard to tackle, probably because I had so many ideas and just didnt know which way to go. I finally decided on something simple and wanted to make a point about the envious angels, the cold wind been blown out of the cloud and the kingdom by the sea. I used a picture of my DD Jenna as Annabell Lee and tried to tell the story in picture form.

Annabel Lee by: Edgar Allan Poe

It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
