I hope you all had a great weekend.
On Saturday I was lucky to have a visit from Dianne Hanson . Up until Saturday I had only 'talked' with Dianne via emails, so it was wonderful to meet Dianne in person. And, not only can this lady scrap, but she is also a whizz at baking! Thank you for the yummy apple cake Dianne!

Tonight I have been tring to create a Junk Yard Doll, without success, tomorrow I will start again!

Check out this old photo. We are quite sure the wee girl on the swing is Andrews nanny. Nanny was born in 1905, so this is one accent photo and really hard to see. I spent a long time in photo shop tring to make this old photo easier to see. ...this is the best I can get it with my limited knowledge of photoshop. Even though it is very grainy, I am still quite happy with the result.

Next task will be to scrap the photo, I may need to call on Dianne for help, she is a whizz at creating heritage pages.

My Scrapping

Here is my finished latest painting

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think
